2″ Black Malleable Iron Male Plug
The 2″ Black Malleable Iron Male Plug is designed to let the user end a pipeline with a fitting, as this plug fits in a female-threaded fitting. An inexpensive thread sealant will be required for a watertight seal. Black iron is resistant to pressure, heat, and corrosion, so it is most often found in gas and oil systems.
These plugs, like caps, provide a way to end a pipeline in a way that can be altered or removed later. The difference between a black iron cap vs. a plug, is that plugs screw into fittings instead of over pipe. These fittings give the user freedom to alter or improve the piping system later on. These plug fittings cost very little and are an effective solution to a variety of gas / oil line applications.
Black iron is a popular material for many reasons. First, it has a high temperature tolerance, with the black coating being able to withstand temperatures up to 500F (260C) and the metal itself having a melting point of 2000+F (1093+C). It is also easy to work with. Unlike cast iron, black iron is malleable and workable. This is due to the fact that what people call “black iron” is not actually iron at all, but a mild steel. This material is a favorite for people putting together oil and gas lines.
