QWIK-FREEZER™
Qwik Freezer equipment utilizes liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) to freeze stationary water in selected sections of pipe or tubing. By producing very low “dry ice” temperatures, Qwik Freezer forms a secure in-line ice plug. This temporarily isolates the water in the system and allows repairs or modifications to be made without draining down or shutting off systems.

Qwik Freezer® equipment utilizes liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) to freeze stationary water in selected sections of pipe or tubing. By producing very low “dry ice” temperatures, Qwik Freezer® forms a secure in-line ice plug. This temporarily isolates the water in the system and allows pipe repairs or modifications to be made without draining down or shutting off systems.

The Qwik Freezer® kit is easy to use. A specially designed jacket is wrapped around the pipe at the point where the freeze is required. A nozzle on the jacket is then coupled to a cylinder of liquid CO2 by means of a high pressure hose. When the liquid CO2 is injected into the space between the jacket and pipe, it immediately expands to form a solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) at a temperature of -109ºF (-78ºC). This low temperature quickly freezes the contents forming a secure “ice plug” which seals the pipe.

The “ice plug forms only in a section of pipe covered by the jacket so the resulting rise in pressure is very small and there is no damage to the pipe. The technique can be used safely on iron, lead, stainless steel, copper, brass and plastic pipe.

Major Advantages

  • Saves valuable time normally lost in draining down and refilling a system.
  • Avoids complete shutdown of systems and equipment (as in a sprinkler or water supply system)
  • Prevents waste of large amounts of water.
  • Eliminates handling of waste water.
  • Safe and cost effective.

ACCU-FREEZE
Accu-Freeze utilizes liquid nitrogen in a controlled system to freeze stationary liquids in a selected section of pipe or tubing. By controlling the surface temperature of the pipe, Accu-freeze can accurately and safely form an in-line ice plug, capable of withstanding 2000 psi in pipes up to 12 inch diameter.

Accu-Freeze utilizes liquid nitrogen in a controlled system to freeze stationary liquids in a selected section of pipe or tubing. By controlling the surface temperature of the pipe, Accu-freeze can accurately and safely form an in-line ice plug, capable of withstanding 2000 psi in pipes up to 12 inch diameter. This temporary plug isolates the section, thus allowing repairs and modifications to be made without shutting off or draining down the entire system.

The Accu-Freeze Technique

Throughout Qwik-Freezer’s twenty-five years of pipe freezing and maintenance our customers have requested pipe-freezing systems that will:

  • Be able to freeze larger diameter pipe
  • Control the entire freeze process

In response to this COB Industries, Inc. introduces Accu-Freeze the world’s first controlled liquid nitrogen pipe freezing system. An Accu-Freeze ice plug starts with wrapping copper tubing and specially designed insulated jacket around the section of pipe to be frozen. The liquid nitrogen is supplied by your local welding or gas distributor. The nitrogen is then injected through our patent pending control system. By constantly reading the surface temperature of the pipe the Accu-Freeze system controls the flow of liquid nitrogen through the wrap and accurately and safely forms an ice plug in lines up to 12 inch diameter.

Accu-Freeze uses it patented control system to accurately and safely create an ice plug. The ice plug only forms beneath the Accu-Freeze coil wrap and jacket (jacket is used on a 6-12 inch pipe.) and does not expand outside of this point. This controlled plug does not create enough pressure to effect the integrity of the pipe. Pipe burst happen when ice forms in an uncontrolled manner and create hydrostatic pressure between ice plugs or against a closure in the line. (Care should be taken to freeze 12 inches away from any closure for every 1 inch diameter of pipe). If you should have any questions please consult a COB Freeze Technician.

Safety Notes

Accu-freeze utilizes liquid nitrogen to create the cryogenic temperatures necessary to form ice plugs. Safety precautions must always be taken when using this product.

Protective clothing, gloves, goggles etc. must be worn at all times when operating this product. Failure to do so may result in severe frostbite.

Liquid nitrogen is heavier than air and will displace oxygen. Proper ventilation is required especially when operating in confined areas.

Accu-Freeze is designed to operate with liquid nitrogen tanks fitted with 22 psi safety valves. Use with any tanks other than properly specified will cause damage to unit and possibly harm to the operator. Please consult a COB Technician for other pipe freezing or pipe repair information.

Safe-T-Sponges™ were developed because excluding machining chips and contamination from boiler tubes and pipes has been a recurring problem. Hand made “gags” were inconsistent, difficult to remove and hard to find on the job site.

We offer three different types of
Safe-T-Sponges™

  • cleaning sponges for pneumatic sounding of tubes
  • boiler tube & pipe sponges to keep tubes and pipes clean
  • during weld prep and repair operations
  • turbine sponges which are custom made to irregular cavity sizes allowing full and easy blockage of debris

     

       

Isolation Barriers

Downloads:

The manufacturer was approached by American Electric Power in 2002 regarding an interest in supplying them a heavy duty inflatable device to temporarily seal off an 18′ wide x 20′ high duct work in a large coal fired power plant.

Units that share a common stack often experience opacity excursions that are aerosols rather than particulates. These aerosols form when the stack flue gas temperature falls below the dew point temperature because of air in-leakage from out of service units, especially at reduced loads. Although zero leakage dampers are available, most units are not equipped with this type of damper. The plant personnel or their designated contractor will sometimes install barriers made of wood and plastic sheeting in order to effectively seal off this air in-leakage from the existing dampers. These temporary wood frame & plastic barriers are time and labor intensive to make, install and remove. These temporary barriers are usually discarded at the end of the outage.

The device is called a “duct balloon” which can be inserted upstream of a louvered damper and inflated to provide a temporary barrier inside the duct. The balloon is constructed out of a durable, acid resistant fabric, and can be reused outage after outage. The material is strong, lightweight, resistant to tears, and is rated to 485°F. Using the supplied 110V blower system, they inflate in 10 minutes or less. The balloon can be quickly deflated by opening a large zipper and it can collapses down small enough to fit through an existing man way allowing it to be removed from the duct work in minutes.

Past applications for using duct balloons are:

  • Isolating duct work during maintenance of ID fans
  • Controlling fugitive dust during precipitator grit blasting
  • Isolating duct work during catalyst element change out in SCR’s
  • Isolate inlet duct work or exhaust stack on Gas Turbines with HRSG
  • Isolate equipment from overspray during boiler water washing
  • Temporarily sealing off the bottom of cyclones and hoppers during outages
  • Isolating primary air ducts during pulverisor maintenance

Stud Cleaners and Bolt Cleaners

It’s finally here! A portable, purpose built machine that uses a patented brush system to clean even the dirtiest bolts and pipes – from 3/4″ to 3″ in diameter – faster, safer and cleaner than ever before. Developed through years of on-site and shop experience, the Shipman Industrial Bolt & Pipe Cleaner offers distinct advantages over traditional cleaning methods. Made in the USA, the Shipman Industrial Bolt & Pipe Cleaner takes the hard work out of a dirty job.

We’ve all been there. You know, standing in front of a screaming benchtop grinder with a dirty bolt or pipe – the sparks flying and your forearms aching from turning as you slowly erase the rust and sludge left behind by years of heavy use. Finally you finish, ignoring your sore back, stiff hands and raw skin covered with stinging , irritating metal filings. Then you pick up another piece and start all over again.
If this sounds all too familiar, don’t worry. You are not alone. Fact is no matter how you approach it, cleaning pipes and bolts has never been an easy job. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way any longer.

The Shipman Industrial Bolt & Pipe Cleaner takes the hard work out of a dirty job. Simply place any length of pipe or bolt into the machine’s powerful chuck and adjust the cleaning wheel diameter. Then flip the conveniently placed switch and guide the variable-speed power-assisted Servo® Drive. That’s it. Just watch as the Shipman’s patented brush system quickly and easily lifts years of grit and grime from even the dirtiest bolts or pipes and traps them in one small on-board collecting unit. Or connect it to your shop’s central vacuum unit. Either way, there are no more bits of sharp metal on your clothes, your skin or in your eyes. You’re left with an incredibly clean bolt or pipe that’s ready to coat or re-install. All in a fraction of the time it used to take!

Faster. The Shipman’s powerful motor, Servo® Drive and variable-speed power-assist cleans bolts and pipe and average of 90% percent faster, increasing productivity and reducing labor costs.

Safer. A shielded housing and automatic shut-off switch ensures the operator’s hands never come in contact with the machine’s wire brushes, reducing potential accidents and possible down time.

Cleaner. Designed for today’s environment consideration, the Shipman Industrial Bolt & Pipe Cleaner effectively “traps” the airborne pollutants normally found during the cleaning process and collects them in one small, easily discarded vacuum chamber. Best of all, it uses no messy chemicals.

At the same time, the Shipman’s patented brush system increases surface area contact, providing a cleaner end product. Plus, its durable frame, compact size and locking rolling casters allow you to take your Shipman machine wherever work calls.

Isn’t it time for something new? Think about it. Sandblasting leaves scars. Chemicals are messy. And bench grinding takes too long. But the Shipman Industrial Bolt & Pipe Cleaner changes all of that. Designed through years of professional shop and on-site experience, the Shipman is loaded with features that eliminate many of the hassles involved with this traditionally labor-intensive job. Plus its safer and faster. Best of all, each Shipman is manufactured by hand in the USA with rugged steel frames on castors and constructed with top quality parts for years of performance. Shipman even offers replacement brushes. It’s simply a machine whose time has come. After just one use, we think you’ll agree… the Shipman Industrial Bolt & Pipe Cleaner is one piece of equipment you shouldn’t be with out!

ARGWELD PURGE BLADDER SYSTEMS

ARGWELD® PURGE BLADDER SYSTEMS

Argweld® Inflatable Purge Bladders are the most effective systems available for pipe purging. The system is pulled into position and inert gas is used to inflate the bladders (dams) which provide a 100% airtight seal on either side of the weld joint, after which the pressure in the system opens the purge valve and the gas purges the space between the bladders ensuring a clean, even penetration bead. Once the weld is completed, the gas is turned off and the bladders are deflated so the system can be pulled through the pipe to the next weld. These systems are specifically designed to be easily pulled into position through long sections of pipe and around elbows without the risk of getting jammed or stuck in the pipe. This uniquely designed system has become an industry standard worldwide for applications involving stainless steel, chrome or other types of pipe that require an oxygen-free weld. The Argweld® systems are used extensively at LNG sites, refineries, power plants, food processing, pharmaceutical and fabrication facilities.

FEATURES
Compared to other methods of gas purging for pipe welding the Argweld® Purge Bladder systems have a number of
distinct advantages that lead to consistently clean welds and significant savings.

  • Reliable. A good purge can be achieved and maintained every time without the fear of the dams becoming dislodged or compromised during the weld process.
  • Faster. These systems are the fastest method of pipe purging by far with no time wasted building, taping or gluing dams in place, and no time wasted purging long sections of pipe. Due to their superior design, the purge time required is up to 8 times faster than foam, paper or other conventional purging methods. For example, an 8” pipe can be purged to less than 1% O2 in less than 60 seconds and a 12” pipe in about 90 seconds
  • Use less inert gas. Argweld® purge systems also offer huge savings from reduced gas consumption for weld purging. They typically use less than 1/3 of the amount of gas required with other types of purge dams.
  • Easy to use. Argweld® purge bladders greatly simplify the process of inert gas purging. With minimal training bright shiny welds that pass inspection can be achieved in no time.
