Type C Inflatable Gas Plugs
Sizes range from 2 inch (51 mm) diameter to 60 inch (1,524 mm) diameter, in 2 inch increments. Easy to use. Easy to install.
Type C Inflatable Gas Plugs are Rubber or Nitrile bladders covered with a Canvas overlay.
Nitrile (Buna-N) rubber (for petroleum usage) and Natural rubber (for Natural gas) available
Inflatable Pipe Plugs have the bladder material available as natural rubber, nitrile or butyl. The inflatable bladders are covered with a canvas overlay to protect the bladder from over inflation and also wear.

Inflatable Pipe Stoppers are supplied as standard with no through tube. Through tubes can be supplied when the stoppers are required for weld purging applications.
When deflated, the inflatable stoppers can be inserted and withdrawn with ease.
Each inflatable stopper comes with an inflation hose fitted with a schrader valve enabling inflation with a standard airline, bicycle or foot pump.We offer a range of shapes and sizes of inflatable stoppers, suitable for all applications. Made from a natural rubber bladder covered in waterproof polyurethane coated nylon to prevent friction and static electricity build up.
There are six different types available
These are generally used for blocking pipes where access is restricted.
These stoppers have less contact area than cylindrical stoppers, and are most suited to applications where access is further limited. Due to its shape the spherical inflatable stopper can be used at any angle.
• Square / Rectangular
These stoppers have a variety of applications, including in air conditioning ducting and venting.
These stoppers require minimal space and are perfectly suited to larger diameter pipes as there is less inflation required.
The design of this type gives more contact area between the stopper and the pipe wall enabling these stoppers to hold back more pressure.
• Heat Resistant
These stoppers are made from a specially designed kevlar and nomex mix material to withstand temperatures up to 932°f/500°c for applications involving higher temperatures such as pre heating.
