Pipe Freezing Kit
Our pipe freezing kit hire tools can help you maintain and repair your pipework and plumbing jobs.Click here to read more...
Pipe freezing kits are fast and efficient kits to help your pipework repair, without needing to drain down entire systems. The temperature surrounding the water pipe is reduced, by either using a liquid or gas refrigerant which should encase the pipe or carried out by placing an electrically controlled freezing head on the pipe. The drop in temperature causes the water in the pipe to freeze and forms a solid iced plug to blocks the pipe and prevent water from flowing so work can be carried out on the pipe.
When it comes to how to use a pipe freezing kit, start by checking you have the correct plumbing tools. The pipe freezing kit should include a pipe freezing jacket, pipe freeze spray, and nylon tubing. When you have the correct plumbing tools, you can proceed to fill the pipe clamp. Make sure you use enough product to commence the freeze, attach the jacket to the pipe securely making sure to tighten the cords on the jacket. Attach the nylon tubing to the jacket of the canister to slowly apply the freeze. The process should take between 2 to 3 minutes with an evident frost forming on the jacket. Continue to spray the product for 30 seconds following to ensure the ice plug has formed properly along the length of the pipe. At this stage, you may carry out your plumbing repair work on the pipe. Our plumbing supplies are available in commercial pipe freezing kit hire options, and domestic pipe freezing kit hire options.
