Line Stopping

Line stopping is a process used to isolate a section of “live” pipeline. With isolating the section of pipe in question, total shutdown of the business/premises can be avoided and thus isolating sections of the pipe for repair, maintenance, replacement or reconfiguration. Line stopping is a mechanical technique for establishing a brief isolation process in a live pipe, where there is still flow and, in this manner, can't be solidified. This also a chosen method for those who can't shut down their mains. Line Stopping is a specialist service that should be completed by an expert.
