Pipe Freezing is a method you can use to modify and restore pipework.
Pipe freezing is a non-invasive, regulated method, using liquid nitrogen to isolate pipework, allowing you to carry out pipework modifications.
By carrying out pipe freezing, there is no need to drain down your pipework systems – saving you time and money by just freezing it!
Pipe Freezing – what is it?
To help, we’ve asked Paul Neve, IDWe’s Pipe Freezing Expert to help explain. Below Paul has answered below some typical questions he gets asked daily:
Does pipe freezing work? Yes!
How does pipe freezing work? Firstly, you fit a pipe freezing jacket, apply liquid nitrogen onto the external surface of the pipe where the jacket is sitting. The nitrogen then cools the exterior of the pipe enough for the liquid to solidify. The frozen fluid isolates a section of the pipe so that repairs or modifications can be carried out.
At what temperature are the pipes frozen? Around -196 Degree Celsius.
Is pipe freezing widely used? Yes, pipe freezing is commonly acknowledged as a safe, reliable, and highly cost-effective method. As it cuts losses of expensive liquids when draining down the system for example, treated water. It’s less time consuming, generally saving you time and money.
Should I worry about pipe freezing? To ensure safety measures are meet, you should allow a pipe freezing specialist team to manage the process for you.
