Essentra push fit plugs provide the advantages and aesthetic of a protective plug with the ease of a push in style. Push fit plugs are easily applied and removed to defend pipes, hoses, and fittings from contaminants during processing, shipment, and storage. We carry an extensive range of push fit plugs to service a wide range of applications and industries.
Tapered Plugs- These have a narrowing design ideal for general purpose applications. Each tapered profile covers multiple outside diameters when used as a cap and multiple inner diameters when used as a plug. Wide flanged caps and plugs keep the plug from being accidentally pushed down through the mating part while still having the tapered design to fit multiple diameters.
Push Fit Plugs with Pull Tab- These have a centre or side pull tab feature for easy removal in awkward locations. These flexible plugs withstand acids and temperatures from -40°C to 135°C.
Push Fit Thread Plugs- Essentra quick fit plugs have a patented design that easily locks the plug into place with a simple push. Two different designs, lateral pull and central pull, are fitted with a flexible tab for quick removal.
Parallel Protection Plugs- These are a popular range of general purpose plugs that provide a clean finish and provide protection from contaminants. Parallel protection plugs are available with or without flanges in LDPE, PVC, or thermoplastic rubber making them a suitable option for a variety of applications.
