Synthotech has a wide range of Pressure Test End that are used as a quick, simple and reliable method of providing a pressure testing facility in Polyethylene (PE) pipe without the need for additional fused parts and mechanical fittings.
The Test Ends are fully reusable and have an internal expanding gripper design from 1985. The higher the pressure the tighter they grip, thus eliminating the requirement for additional restraints. Suitable for both gas and potable water pipes tested up to 16bar.
Expanding Stopper / Drain Plugs
The expanding pipe stoppers are made of a rubber tyre ring, which is fitted between two plates. A moveable wing nut compresses the tyre, causing it to expand in the pipe which seals off the flow. Pipe stoppers are available from 2” (50mm) to 24” (600mm) manufactured from either aluminium, steel or nylon. They all have a central hollow shaft with a sealing screwed cap, ½” to 2” BSP. Larger sizes are available upon request.
