SmartStop™ Double Block and Bleed Line Intervention

Double the Isolation. Double the Reliability.

Innovative Design Enables Insertion Under Flow Conditions

At TEAM, innovation never ends. Our patent pending SmartStop™ double block and bleed technology allows proven, high-integrity isolations to be made on critical assets safely and reliably.

Unlike conventional single barrier line stop systems, TEAM’s SmartStop™ system features a dual seal system allowing isolation integrity to be physically confirmed ahead of breaking any down-stream containment. An integral bleed port allows the interspace between the primary and secondary seals to be vented, proving seal integrity on setting the tool and demonstrate zero energy throughout the duration of the isolation. The use of self-energized seals eliminates the need for seal activation using complex hydraulics.
