OUR COMMITMENT TO SAFETY & SUSTAINABILITY
We understand how important the environment is and the value in maintaining or improving energy efficiency ratings in a property or business. That’s why we take pride in the environmental benefits of our pipe freezing technology.
We undertake our pipe freezing technique using liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen is a non-toxic, inert gas that makes up almost 80% of the air we breathe, so it is not harmful to people or the environment. Using correct delivery and handling procedures, liquid nitrogen is highly effective and safe to use.
The pipe freezing and hot tapping processes offer incredible energy savings by avoiding the draining down of a system. It is environmentally friendly because there is minimal fluid wastage and no need to refill, reheat or re-cool the contents of the system. Our pipe freezing or hot tapping methods also mean there is no use of chemicals to create the freeze plug or hot tap, therefore no harmful chemicals are being dumped at the completion of the process.
Safety is our no. 1 priority
Pipefreezer is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all our employees and clients. Since commencing our operations Pipefreezer Group have performed in excess of 250,000 pipe freezes and during that time we have maintained a perfect safety record. We aim to finish each working day injury free and so all Pipefreezer employees are white card trained and certified to conduct work on construction sites nationally. The operations of our organisation are designed to ensure our clients and the local community are never put at risk of injury, illness or property damage.
