Double Block and Bleed Test / Isolation Plug
Positively Isolate Explosive Vapors from Hot Work Areas When Performing Modifications and Repairs
Positively isolate and monitor potentially explosive vapors during hot work, then effectively hydrotest the new weld connection with one tool. The dual port creates a positive pressure barrier between the seals - safely isolating the hot work from any residual upstream gases.
Lightweight aluminum/steel construction makes our DBB plug significantly lighter than other plugs on the market, often allowing operators to circumvent the use of cranes and/or other lifting devices, which can be in high demand during turnarounds. Our 8” schedule 80 plug weighs just 36lbs (16.3kg) compared to other plugs weighing in excess of 100lbs (45.4kg) of the same size.
