Industrial and Domestic pipelines are frozen in order to negate the problems associated with the conventional option of draining, filling and venting.
Draining down pipe systems is costly and time consuming, in most instances the water to be drained will include contaminates in the form of inhibitors, glycol, etc.
Pipefreezing eliminates the above and has the added benefit of reducing water wastage when systems are refilled.
Pipefreezing also reduces the risk of oxidization caused by air entering the pipeline through draining down.
Pipefreezing removes the cost of replacing inhibitors.
Pipefreezing is a non-intrusive method of isolation giving the added benefit of eliminating the possibility of future leakage.
