Need a Custom Solution?
Let Cherne Solve It.
Unique situations call for customized solutions. Reach out to Cherne's experienced engineering team to develop a customized plug for your application. We will design and manufacture the plug for your job.
Leveraging state-of-the-art robotics technology and a full in-house machine shop, Cherne can engineer and manufacture a solution for any unique application. Recent examples of this include a 74-inch disc plug for stainless steel pipe designed to hold 50 PSI back pressure and 75 PSI max test pressure for a wastewater treatment facility fitting through 24-inch manhole access point. Additionally, we were tasked to block flow in a tunnel requiring a 104-inch disc plug holding back 25 ft of head with a 12-inch bypass flange to enable repairs while allowing construction work to continue. Put our team to the test!
Always check the plug’s maximum back pressure capability before using.

We begin by understanding your job and requirements. From there we will design a plug factoring back pressure, bypass needs, access constraints, media properties, pipe type and other variables. We will then leverage our state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to produce and deliver the plug to your location.
