There is a widespread misconception that if you want a long-lasting plug for your pipes and condensers, you should invest in a high-pressure plug, because anything a low-pressure plug can do, a high-pressure one can do better. However, despite the bad reputation they have garnered, low-pressure plugs are by no means inferior to high-pressure plugs. In fact, aside from differing in the amount of pressure they can withstand and positively seal, low-pressure plugs can be the optimal choice in certain situations.
How Do You Know If The Low-Pressure Plugs Are Suitable For You?
Low-pressure plugs are some of the most effective ways to seal low-pressure, low-temperature heat exchangers and condensers. On top of that, they are more cost effective than their high-pressure counterparts and are perfect for units where it would be overkill to use high-pressure plugs. As such, if you are looking for a cost-saving and effective plug for your low-pressure tubes or heat exchangers, you should look into utilizing low-pressure tube plugs.
Durable and Versatile
Low-pressure plugs, such as Torq N’ Seal’s Condenser Tube Plugs, provide a superior confidence seal that can withstand pressure above 250 PSI. This is well over what is typically considered low fluid pressure, which ranges between 40 to 80 PSI. Furthermore, the Condenser Tube Plugs can handle temperatures of up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, making them suitable for sealing low-pressure heat exchangers.
High-quality low-pressure plugs should also be resistant to a bevy of chemicals. This is because these plugs often come into contact with chemicals that can corrode or damage, thereby drastically reducing the longevity of the plug. To prevent issues arising due to chemical damage, ensure that your low-pressure plugs can effectively withstand bleach, sulfuric acid, nitric acid, radiation, and sodium chloride solutions, as well as ozone, oxidizing environments. Last but not least, one of the most ubiquitous causes of rust and corrosion is salt exposure, so make sure that your low-pressure plug is not susceptible to its effects. Torq N’ Seal® Condenser Plugs can withstand even the harshest operating conditions.
Easy to Install and Cost-Effective
Lastly, one of the biggest perks of low-pressure plugs is how easy they are to install and how cost effective they are. For example, Torq N’ Seal’s Condenser Tube Plugs do not require any special tools or training to install. In fact, the entire process is fuss-free, with everything you need already included with your purchase. If you are still not confident in your ability to install it yourself, there is an easy-to-follow instruction manual that you can reference online. These plugs are also incredibly cost-effective, sometimes costing nearly 10 times less than their high-pressure counterparts, yet are just as effective.
All in all, if you are looking to purchase a long-lasting plug for your low-pressure pipes, heat exchangers, or condensers whilst minding your budget, low-pressure plugs will undoubtedly be your best friend. Not only are they cheaper than high-pressure plugs, but they are also equal in utility and intuitive to maintain and install.
