Due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak, our trade counter is currently closed for customers. Collection is available on orders with instructions for collections once orders are placed.Courier deliveries are currently operating as normal with some delays in a small select number of locations.
We have made arrangements with suppliers to send items direct on a next day service on items that have a 3 day availability and are not on our shelves. These charges are set by our manufacturers and will depend on items ordered and delivery postcode, but should help with clearing backlogs and ensuring deliveries are received quickly if required.

British standard pipe thread taper pressure plugs.
Taper pressure plugs are made to close tolerances and will seal at pressure up to 500psi without the use of sealing compounds.
They are often used for hydraulic and pneumatic applications.
Sealing is achieved by crushing the crest of one thread against the root of the mating thread. Dryseal plugs are used more frequently especially where re-use is required. More threads are engaged therfore creating a better seal. They are also prefered for use in softer materials to reduce the risk of over-torquing.
