Rather than performing costly welding or installing ball plugs with excessive installation forces, you can use expansion plugs to seal cross-drilled holes and machined passageways in metal manifolds. With a guaranteed helium leak-tight seal, you do not need O-rings or other sealants that may degrade over time.
As the original inventor of expansion plug technology and with hundreds of millions proven in service in every conceivable environment, trust The Lee Company to provide the right solutions for your application.
View Lee expansion plugs in a variety of sizes, materials, and configurations for a wide range of end uses.
When you need to seal machined passageways that require removable and reusable access for maintenance or repair, Axial Force Only (AFO®) Plugs provide a leak-tight seal that can accommodate high pressure and high-temperature manifold applications.
The plugs have a simple threaded installation, guarantee a helium leak-tight metal-to-metal seal, and are capable of burst pressures up to 56,000 psi and temperatures up to 600°F.
