And for optimum accuracy, settings can be adjusted for full size or mini-reel configurations.

Cherne larger I-Series line of test plugs
Cherne Industries added larger test plug sizes within its I-Series line of Test-Ball, Muni-Ball and Air-Loc pipe plugs. I-Series plugs are built using a robotic manufacturing system that delivers quality, consistency and durability. The new plugs are available as large as 24 to 48 inches. Manufactured robotically, each plug’s natural rubber core is mechanically bonded to its aluminum end plate, ensuring precision and consistency while eliminating failures that can result from chemical-bonding processes. In addition, I-Series plugs feature corrosion-resistant aluminum base plates with laser-etched identifiers, replacing the use of raised rubber markings that eventually wear away with usage. The plugs are lightweight, short and flexible, while offering back pressure to accommodate the range of plug sizes offered. Protective sleeves are also available for the full range of I-Series plugs, helping further preserve the plugs for extended use. 800-843-7584;
