New smart service plugs from Hydroscand
Hydroscand is launching specially designed service plugs in carefully selected materials, that enable both reuse and recycling.
Service plugs are important tools for minimising the risk of environmentally harmful leakage. For example, during oil changes, service, assembly and hose changes. Leakage can also lead to high remediation costs.
To help customers reduce the environmental impact, the service plugs are made of oil-resistant TPV, a thermoplastic elastomer. Unlike plugs that are made of rubber, Hydroscand's plugs can be recycled instead of burned.
The material also has properties that allow the plug to sit firmly in place and can be reused for a longer period of time. The plug can withstand a temperature range of -40°C to +130°C. Hydroscand's new plug is available in many different sizes and can be used for a variety of jobs: wherever you need to temporarily plug something that is not pressurised. They work excellently in, for example, hose breakage, where you want to protect the environment, but also need to ensure that as little as possible is lost from the system. They also work to plug a drain so as to avoid unpleasant odors. The new service plugs are therefore suitable for those who working in areas such as hydraulics, plumbing, workshop service, shipping and more.
