Collierville, TN. (March 23, 2010) – IPS Corporation’s new Test-Tite® Pressure Relief Pneumatic Test Plug features an internal-pressure, safety relief valve that reduces the risk of exceeding the proper inflation pressure. This patented design reduces the potential for damage to plugs and drain, waste and vent (DWV) systems. If the recommended pressure is exceeded by the user, the excess is released, returning the plug to its proper size and pressure. The relieved pressure exhausts through the top of the plug, and not into the test area.
Designed for testing or temporarily blocking plumbing DWV systems, the Pressure Relief Pneumatic Test Plug can be used in place of current standard pneumatic test plugs. It features no moving parts to fail, malfunction or plug; five sealing rings at the center of the plug for a positive seal; and a one-piece, injection-molded construction for strength and durability.
Additional features include a crimped ferrule that attaches the relief valve to the test plug, ensuring that it stays in place, and a recessed portion on the relief valve to attach the plug removal chain securely.
