Overview

Preferred Engineering developed three generations of our Main Steam Line Plugs. We were the first to design and supply MSL Plugs capable of withstanding full LLRT pressures that allowed full testing "in the direction of flow". We also holds a patent on the design of a hydraulic MSL Plug for larger BWR plants. In 1994, Preferred Engineering developed a third generation MSL Plug for "Wet-Lift" installations. These Plugs are installed in pairs and can be installed using a rigid pole system or lift slings.
