Utilising the pipeline plugging technology, the Pipeline Plugging System or Valve Removal Tool allows for pipeline valves to be replaced locally with minimal disruption.
This system consists of a stuffing box and a Medium Pressure Pipeline Plug. It is designed to bolt onto the existing valve; this process means that the valve can be opened and the plug inserted through the valve into the pipeline where it is inflated. With the plug left in situ, the stuffing box can be removed and the affected valve replaced.
