Flange Plugs

 Among the category of flange fittings (or flange adapters) are flange plug caps, which are used to cap off or block the flow in the pipe. Flange plugs are basically a flange without a center hole that closes the end of a pipe when bolted to a standard mating flange. Depending on the system requirements, these flange plug caps are typically gas or liquid-tight. For gray water subsurface irrigation, they are sometimes used to force waste through perforated holes in the pipe, driven by system pressure.
