Flow Stopping / Line Stopping

  • Overview
  • How It Works

Our line stopping equipment provides you with the opportunity to isolate a section of your pipeline whilst essential repair and maintenance work can be carried out. This method uses our innovative under pressure drilling equipment to create a hole in the pipe line whilst under pressure. A flow stop is lowered into the pipeline, with a specialist plugging head resisting the forces created by the flow.

When looking to isolate a section of pipe, UTS Engineering can combine flow stops with a bypass line to allow for maintenance and repair to be carried out without the need for a costly shut down.

A section of pipework is shown being removed to simulate a damaged section of the pipeline being repaired, replaced or for the installation of new valves or meters. Flow is maintained during this operation through a bypass line, ensuring increased customer satisfaction and reducing time and cost implications.
