Line Stopping


LINE STOPPING is a means of stopping flow and providing a shut off where none exists. This process serves as a control, or temporary valve that can be removed after alterations or valve replacements have been made. LINE STOPS can be made in pipes from 1" through 48" and up to 300psi. With conjunction with HOT TAPPING a bypass system can be installed to provide uninterrupted service if needed.
