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.
