Preserve pipeline uptime with the industry’s choice in line stopping - Wellube Line Stopping Services.
A mechanically inserted and operated stopple head is used in line stopping, an interventional procedure, to temporarily isolate a pipeline portion so that maintenance or repair work can be done on a downstream pipeline. Permanent or temporary bypasses can be used to accomplish line stops, allowing for continuous production while the pipeline segment is isolated.
During tie-ins, relocations, repairs, retrofits, and routine maintenance, this technology avoids unneeded shutdowns and maintains the operational status of crucial pipes and pipeline systems.
Line stopping can be done on various piping materials and for various media, including sewage, gas, oil, water, and steam.
Line stopping isolates a portion of the “live” pipeline for maintenance and stops the flow in an operational pipeline.
When utilised in conjunction with a temporary bypass, the pipeline can often be used normally during the procedure.
The same procedures and ideas are still applicable today, with some noteworthy improvements, even though line-stopping services, like hot tapping, have their roots in the early 20th century. When executing renovation, modification, relocation, tie-ins, maintenance, or retrofits, tried-and-true technologies connected to line plugging continue to be widely employed and play an unquestionably crucial role.
