Pipe stoppers & barrier discs

How is a pipe stopper used?

A pipe stopper, also known as a sewer plug, is typically used to remove blockages in sewer pipes. The pipe stopper is an efficient way to block or seal off sewer pipes, drain pipes etc in a quick and reliable manner. A pipe stopper can be used in repairs and maintenance, as well as testing for leaks using either water or air. It is made of a high quality rubber material. A pipe stopper is also known as a sewer plug due to its intended use. Pipe stoppers are available with or without bypass for water.

These are the steps for the use of a pipe stopper:

Remove any blockages in the drain and flush it through with water to make sure there are no objects or dirt that can block the pipe stopper.

Guide the pipe stopper down the drain until it reaches the blockage.

Using an air pump, inflate the pipe stopper until it fills the pipe and blocks off water flow.

Leave for a few minutes, allowing the pressure to push the blockage out of the way. If it is a large blockage, you can repeat the process several times until the the pipe is fully unclogged.

When the blockage has been removed, slowly let the air out of the pipe stopper and carefully remove it from the drain.

It is important to exercise caution when using a pipe stopper, and to follow manufacturer instructions, in order to avoid damage to the sewer network and other issues.

Fibreglass pipe rod for drawing cable?

Fibreglass pipes are a type of pipe made from fibreglass-reinforced plastic. These pipes are typically used for cable drawing, as they offer several advantages when compared with pipes made from other materials, such as metal or PVC.

Firstly, fibreglass pipes are very lightweight, making them easy to handle and install. They are also flexible, which means they can be bent and shaped as needed, and guiding cables through complex installations is therefore easier.

Fibreglass pipes are also corrosion-resistant and can withstand moisture and chemicals, making them ideal for installation in demanding environments. They are also resistant to electrical interference, which means they can help protect cables from electromagnetic disturbances.

In essence, fibreglass pipes are a reliable and efficient choice for drawing cable and can help achieve a smooth installation process and operation of the cables.

How are fibreglass pipe rods used for drawing cable?

A fibreglass pipe rod is a tubular channel used for drawing cable in buildings and infrastructure. They are made of fibreglass-reinforced plastic, and are lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion. Fibreglass pipe rods can be used for different applications, including telecommunication, data network installations, and power plants.

These are the steps for using fibreglass pipe rods for cable drawing:

  1. Plan the cable drawing project: Before beginning to draw cable, thoroughly plan the project. This includes identifying the precise route for the cable and determining the correct size and number of pipes.
  2. Prepare the fibreglass pipe rods: To prepare the pipe rods you must cut them to the desired length and remove any sharp edges which could damage the cable.
  3. Install the pipe rods: Install the rods in the mapped routes using mounting brackets and secure them to the walls or ceiling. 
  4. Draw the cables: When the pipe rods have been installed, you can draw the cable through the pipes using a cable puller. It is important to pull the cable evenly and without damaging it.
  5. Complete the installation: When the cables have been pulled through, you must install plugs and connectors and test the system to make sure it functions correctly.

It is important to remember that fibreglass pipe rods can have different dimensions and diameters, and it is vital to select the right size and amount of pipes to meet the demands of your specific project. Additionally, please follow all safety procedures and meet installation criteria in order to ensure safe and efficient installation.

We can also offer pipe rods in a variety of diameters, lengths, and types, which come with or without wheels and with or without tracer. The copper tracer allows for a 33 kHz signal with the pipe rod, if used with a C.Scope cable tracer set.
