Pipe Freezing Operation

pipeline intervention1
Pipeline Intervention

Hot Tapping

Hot Tapping (Under Pressure Drilling) is the method of making a connection to existing pressurised piping whilst the system remains on line. Also used as an access point for temporary isolation.

Available from 1” to 70” at Pipeline

Pressures of 1440 psi at 38oC

and 700 psi at 370oC

2 Position Line Plug

With by-pass

Pipeline Intervention

Line Plugging

Line Plugging is a means of stopping flow and providing a shut-off where no means of providing isolation is already in existence. Can be used in conjunction with a by-pass to maintain flow.

Available from 1” to 48”

pipeline intervention3
Pipeline Intervention

Pipe Freezing

Pipe Freezing involves the use of liquid nitrogen in the controlled formation of a solid ice plug inside the pipeline. Used for temporary isolation.

Available from 1” to 48”
