Testing blind plugs

A European gas plant had experienced numerous problems with the sealing of blind plugs in a LNG system (Liquefied Natural Gas). Many different types of sealant had been tried but none of them were able to cope with a temperature of -162 °C combined with the operational pressure.

In cooperation with the client and sealant manufacturer ITIS tested several sealing types and found a sealant which met every requirement. In addition ITIS provided an assembly procedure specifically written for our client’s problem.
