ICE-O-LATOR© Technology

In pipeline maintenance, hydrostatic testing and leak detection, it is often necessary to isolate valves and sections of pipe. A safe, reliable and economical way to accomplish this is with the use of our ICE-O-LATOR© System. 

Introducing liquid nitrogen in to the ICE-O-Lator rapidly freezes the contents of the pipe to form a plug, or line stop which makes it possible to isolate valves, vessels, pumps, equipment and other facilities for repair, modifications or hydrostatic testing. The ICE-O-LATOR© System utilizes precision monitoring equipment to develop a reliable freeze plug for single or multiple applications, regardless of the pressures exerted. 

We developed and patented this unique method of freezing a plug within a pipe. This process is offered exclusively by Freeze Technology International, Ltd and our subsidiary companies.
