Ultra-High-Temperature, High-Pressure Line Plugging Solution
When it's critical that you keep your plant running; when other line-plugging solutions have failed; when you need to install a valve where one doesn't exist - there's only one option to turn to. The PLIDCO Shear+Plug is the industry standard for ultra-high-temperature, high-pressure line plugging solutions.
What is a PLIDCO Shear+PlugThe PLIDCO Shear+Plug is a metal-to-metal plug-off device that allows for maintenance and repair of ultra-high-temperature, high-pressure pipelines. Designed to isolate a system for repairs, the PLIDCO Shear+Plug provides a safe plug-off technique that negates the need for system shut down providing your maintenance team a safe environment to repair a line or install a valve all while keeping your line operational.
How a Shear+Plug WorksThe PLIDCO Shear+Plug works by inserting a temporary (or permanent) "gate valve" in a line where one otherwise didn't exist. A double acting hydraulic cylinder accomplishes the shear through, positions the sealing blind plate, while also retracting it ensuring no shell cutter is used to enter the pipe, eliminating a myriad of potential problems. By creating a metal-to-metal seal, with an injected redundant sealant, the PLIDCO Shear+Plug redirects the flow of the pipeline allowing for uninterrupted service - preventing shutdowns while creating a safe work environment for your maintenance teams.
Where and When to use a Shear+PlugPLIDCO Shear+Plugs have been successfully used on boiler feed, catalyst, high octane gas, fuel, and superheated steam lines in the power generation, refining, steel, chemical, and paper plants around the world. The Shear+Plug is the ideal line-plugging solution for ultra-high-temperature, high-pressure lines where pressures range from 600-2200 psi, and temperatures exceeded 600F.
Utilize Shear+Plug on Your PipelineDeployed successfully where other solutions have failed, the PLIDCO Shear+Plug has a 100% success rate at 1-8" applications (ANSI Class 900). Don't waste your time with the other guys, plug your high-temperature, high-pressure line the first time with the PLIDCO Shear+Plug.
