Pipe Freezing Kit

No need to drain water lines, sprinkler systems, or hot water systems before cutting pipe or tubing. The Cold-Shot keeps pressurized systems operating while you make repairs. It freezes all types of liquid in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum, and plastic pipes ranging from 1/8" to 2" (10 mm - 60 mm) using carbon dioxide (CO2). Dip-tube type cylinders are available at all welding supply houses. The Cold-Shot is faster and less expensive than "refrigerator-type" units; faster and uses less CO2 than "bag-type" units. In five minutes you're ready to go to work on copper tubing, just three minutes for cast iron pipe.

The freezing times and carbon dioxide requirements given in the table below are only to be regarded as general guidelines and are valid for a water temperature of approximately 68 F (20 C). The freezing times and refrigerant consumption values will therefore vary for other temperatures. For freezing liquids in plastic pipes much longer freezing times are generally required.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "My kit is not freezing the pipe. What could be wrong?"
A. The water may still be moving through the pipe. Check for any open or leaking faucets as well as an auxiliary pump that may be circulating the water in the system. Also, check for any sources of heat that could be preventing the water from freezing.

Q. "The CO2 is not flowing to the freeze fitting. Why?"
A. The tee that attaches to the CO2 bottle has a stone filter. If it has been exposed to moisture, it can freeze at the filter, thus preventing the CO2 from flowing. Turn off the CO2 bottle and remove the tee and allow it to dry. Then repeat the process. Do not blow through the tee because your breath contains moisture, and will require time for the tee to dry.
