APF - New Logo1.psdAccess Plug Flange, Inc. manufactures the most durable and wide-ranging inspection plugs for the oil, gas and petrochemical industry. APF, Inc.’s acquisition of it’s own elastomer molding facility has been instrumental in the development of “matching inspection plugs to process temperatures”. This ability is what allows our product line to ensure the integrity of the system, even if the insulation core is lost or discarded during the inspection process. Our inspection plugs have a reputation for durability and quality. Other inspection plugs may cost less, but can fall apart after a short period of time when exposed to the elements. The labor cost for replacing these damaged inspection plugs in the field will exceed, by far, any savings generated by using lesser quality inspection plugs. We are not bragging when we say “The Worldwide Leader In Inspection Port Technology.”, we have the facts to prove it.
