Pipe Freezing Equipment

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.

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.

Not Over Engineered. Our methods have been developed to reduce your cost while providing a rapid and elective turnaround to hit your project milestones. When designing your custom solution, we carefully consider and seek the most eRcient method to meet your needs. During implementation, we come on -site and work directly with your personnel. By leveraging the knowledge of your current resources who have an intimate understanding of the facility, we reduce your cost and overall implementation time.


Our implementation experience and knowledge allows us to provide rapid and accurate quotes so you can move forward with your project. Most projects can be engineered in less than 2 weeks and submitted for your approval well in advance of the need. Additionally, our engineering team has amassed considerable experience in the held allowing us to rapidly respond to the changing needs of our customers and their projects.


To meet your needs, we design our engineering solutions with careful consideration given to incorporating locally or on -site equipment availability. While other Arms run up their profits by forcing customers to use their equipment, we feel that the same or even better results can be achieved by integrating existing hardware on the site or sourcing locally. This saves you money, time, reduces waste, cuts transportation costs and reduces unexpected barriers to completion. Our strength is our process.
