Air Pressure Testing is generally not acceptable in the water industry with the exception of testing non-pressure mains at very low pressures (100m water gauge). Air Testing is to be avoided if at all possible due to the hazards inherent in containing large volumes of compressed air.
These stoppers are generally used when a standard test of 100mm of water over air is required.
Assists in overcoming ovality and irregular sized pipelines.
The RAK has been developed as a direct result of the building regulations (BSEN 752:2008) stating persons must no longer enter reduced access environments.
Designed for use when air testing drainage pipes to a standard air test of 100mm of water over air. Milltest Air test stoppers are very light and easily transported, making them ideal for testing awkward to reach locations.
A durable aluminium testing plug with a single rubber seal, suitable for carrying out water and air tests in all types of pipes. Also available in pressed steel.
Multiple compression points around perimiter of the plug enables seal expansion in localised areas.
The Eesiseel range of inflatable PVC plugs have ridged bodies to ensure a good seal even in difficult conditions.
Stopper Specialists offer nylon air bags with either a Schrader valve or a gascock. These bags are ideal for areas where the access opening is smaller than the test diameter or where the test is some distance from the point of access. They can be supplied with any length of inflation hose.
The new Airtest Stopper covers pipes ranging from 300mm to 700mm with only two sizes.
