Pipe Freezing Services

Pipe Freezing Service “PFS” makes leak detection and mechanical repairs faster and easier. By controlling the liquid nitrogen to safely freeze stationary liquids in a section of a pipe that forms a ice plug on pipes up to 26” in diameter.

The proprietary techniques used by PFS has been proven to be the quickest and most cost-effective method available in today's market place, saving you both time and money.


By monitoring and controlling the surface temperature of the pipe, PFS can safely & accurately form an in-line ice plug, capable of withstanding up to 6,000 PSI. We have conducted hundreds if not thousands of pipe freezes since 1993. Our proprietary and specialized jackets are engineered and fabricated in-house, backed by 27 years of experience. PFS uses a systematic approach for the use of pipe freezing to detect hydro-static test leaks on buried pipelines that eliminates the need to walk miles of ROW as all other technologies currently require.

What other technology allows you to eliminate the need to search half of the pipe segment in 3-8 hours depending on pipe size?


What other technology allows you to make repairs without removing the test medium fron the entire line segment?


PFS also performs pipe freezing services inside hospitals & other buildings, marine vessels, chemical & other process plants or refineries for mechanical repairs without removing the fluids. If it’s tubular, full of freeze-able fluid & static, we can freeze it! 

Independent laboratory studies and tests have analyzed the structural composition of pipes after freezing and have found no physical or chemical change in the matrix of the pipe due to the freezing process.
