Flomatic has expanded its Break‐Off Plug selection for Model PLG (stainless steel) and Model PPLG (composite). Break‐Off Plugs are designed to drain the well water in the riser pipe, making it easier to pull the submersible pump for service.
The Break-Off Plugs are designed for domestic well water pump systems, municipal well water systems, and irrigation and sprinkler system applications. Available sizes include: ⅛, ⅜, ½ and ¾ inch, all in an NPT male connection. Flomatic Break‐Off Plugs are field replaceable after use and made of corrosive resistant materials.
When the water is drained from the break‐off plug, the piping system becomes much lighter and there will be less well water at the wellhead. This can reduce riser pipe weight from 25 to 50%, depending on pipe size. For example, using a Flomatic Model 80DI PLG can cut weight by 1,224 pounds, or nearly 40%. The company says this simplifies pulling well piping and submersible pump for service. In addition, approximately 150 fewer gallons per 100 foot of pipe will spill on the surface of the wellhead site.
Break-Off Plugs are offered on Flomatic submersible pump check valves series 80DI, 80DI‐VFD, 80DIX, 80S6 and 80S6VFD, in sizes from 2 to 12 inches.
