Plugs can come in many forms for the myriad of uses in any household or industry. There are also many commercial applications which make use of plugs. There are tubing plugs, plastic or PVC plugs, vinyl plugs or metal plugs.

Almost all applications today would need some type of plug for safety and longer lasting functioning of the equipment in an application. Although there are currently 10,000 standard plug products in stock, more are designed and manufactured to fit the changing lifestyle of today with the progressive technology that is sweeping the world.

Range of tubing

Plugs can be of tubing form to fit the application like a glove to the hand; banjo union tube plugs are shaped like the banjo to provide a nicer fit. There are plugs for propane cylinder valves, barrels, packaging tubes and other types of components in various environments.

These plugs can come in various sizes, shapes, colors and designs that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Tubing plugs are meant to protect equipment from pollutants like dust, debris, dirt or moisture anytime; whether in a stable condition like the warehouse or transit condition as in shipping and delivery. Sometimes they are called dust plugs, closures, protective tube plugs or end plugs.

Tubing plugs can be center pulled focus, side pulled focus, tapered, threaded or packaged. It depends on the application and budget of the consumer.

Special tubal plugs

The TPR flangeless tubal plugs are tapered in design made of black thermoplastic rubber which can withstand high temperatures up to 300°F (149°C). This tubing plug is designed to protect threaded or unthreaded holes effectively without the need to mask the surrounding areas. These are ergonomically friendly plugs that can be easily installed or removed. Such tubing plugs are favored where resistance is high.

Tubing finned plugs are another special type of industrial plug that allow a tight fitting in any application to avoid dirt or debris to get into the tubing. Copper or aluminum material is usually used in this type of L & M tubing finned plugs which are made of low density polyethylene. They have a small unobtrusive tab for pulling which is ideal for thin walled tubing.
