The Cold-Shot™ Pipe Freezing Kit from
General Pipe Cleaners lets you repair an operating water system -
without draining water lines, sprinkler systems or hot water systems
before cutting pipe or tubing.
Using Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in dip-tube cylinders, the Cold-Shot™ freezes
liquids in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum or plastic pipes, 1/8"
through 2" in diameter. Simply place the freeze head around the
pipe, attach the hose and open the CO2 cylinder valve. Liquid CO2 flows
into the Cold-Shot™ freeze head, forming an ice pack in the pipe capable
of withstanding 7000 psi.
Faster, more compact and less expensive than "refrigerator-type" units,
the Cold-Shot™ can create an ice plug in copper tubing within five
minutes - and in steel pipe within three minutes. Unlike slower, less
economic "bag-type" devices, the lightweight General Cold-Shot™ provides
a much better seal and distributes the CO2 evenly around the pipe.
The Cold-Shot™ kit includes 10 sets of freeze heads, two high pressure
spiral hoses with injectors, rubber gloves, goggles and carrying case.
