Gas Pipe Squeeze Off
Where there are no means to isolate a live branch gas pipe to stop the flow to allow safe repair is to use a ‘squeeze off’ tool. These clamps come in various sizes and allow the pipe to be ‘squeezed’ to safely stop the flow of gas on most plastic pipes. Once the pipe has been sealed and further safety checks are conducted to ensure no gas is flowing we are then able to carry out essential repairs, pipe fusing, or branch connections on the gas pipes.
When the works are complete and all the pipe joints are safe, the clamp is released to allow the flow of gas. Using squeeze off clamps is an ideal way to work on mains gas lines that feed various buildings so work can be carried out on your plant or commercial/industrial building without having to isolate neighbouring properties.
Gas Pipe Works can carry out this work using our highly skilled engineers once a site survey has been completed to ensure this is the best and safest option available before proceeding to carry out any repair or maintenance works
