Installation Training – Pop-A-Plug P2 Heat Exchanger Tube Plugging System
When pressures go up to super-critical levels, there’s nothing like EST Group’s Pop-A-Plug P2 Tube Plugging System. A proven long-term performer in fossil and nuclear stations, the P2 features patented internally serrated rings designed to maintain a leak-tight seal under extreme thermal and pressure cycling.
Installation is simple: prepare the tube using the brush and size the tube with the Go/No-Go gage supplied; install the correct size plug with the hydraulic ram. The ram pulls the tapered pin through the ring, expanding it into the tube. When the proper installation pressure is reached, the breakaway pops like a pop rivet. This controlled installation force protects surrounding tubes and adjacent ligaments.
Pop-A-Plug P2 Tube Plugging System reduces downtime, eliminates welding and explosives, and will not damage your tubes, tubejoints or tubesheet. Fast, safe and simple – just “Set ‘Em and Forget ‘Em”.
