INTERVIEW about pneumatic pipe plugs solution

" All nuclear power plants require regular hydraulic tests for their entire steam system. In the past, these tests were only possible in several stages and carried out step by step :
  • Pressurize the entire system (valves, pipes…)
  • Removal and maintenance of parts
  • Repair and re-install
Thanks to availability of pipe plugs, these tests can now be carried out in considerably shorter time. This economic and simple solution can be performed by a small maintenance team and the down time minimized.
