High-Temperature Line Stops

Solutions to isolate a section of pipe when pressure and/or temperatures exceed normal limitations.

Line Stops that Exceed Conventional Limitations

High-temperature line stops allow for maintenance and repair of ultra-high pressure, high temperature piping systems without shutting down the line. These line stops are utilized on specialized applications when pressures and/or temperatures exceed normal limitations. Permanent high-temperature line stops are also available to provide isolation of a piping system without leaving line stop equipment on the line.
