Pete's plugs will allow you to take pressure and temperature readings quickly and eliminate the need for leaving costly gauges or temperature indicators on the line. Depending on the application, the Pete's Plug can be operated to a maximum of 500 PSIG and 200° or 275°F for neoprene and nordel respectively. Maximum working pressures of 1000 PSIG can be attained with neoprene or nordel at temperatures from 140°F to -20°F.
The enhanced version of Pete's Plug II is still the only pressure and temperature test plug with two self-closing valves, but the valves are improved with interaction which speeds valve closure.
In general the Pete's Plug is a time and money saving device which is well suited for most plant and pipeline systems and is designed to eliminate gauge cocks and thermometer wells. Hot and chilled water systems, heat exchangers, pumps, differential readings, air, gas lines and numerous other applications are only a few of the areas where the Pete's Plug are presently being used.Pressure Gauge Adapters
The pressure gauge adapter has a probe constructed of 304 stainless steel. The probe is 0.156" in diameter and extends 2 inches on the standard adapter and 3-1/2" inches on the extra long adapter. The 1/8" diameter probe is less likely to become clogged with foreign material and resists bending. Also, the 1/8" diameter probe operates in either the 1/4" , 3/8" , or 1/2" Pete's Plug. Please note the 500XL gauge adapter will operate in any of the Pete's Plug's. It is intended for use with any of the XL Pete's Plug's.
