• Hot Tapping: 1/2" - 96"

    Adding new connections, or tie-ins, to existing pipelines, without interrupting service, is our specialty. Capabilities: 1/2" - 96" on water, gas, steam, air and chemicals. Available for any type of pipe, with complete turnkey services available. IFT specializes in large diameter connections.

  • Line Stopping: 1/2" - 72"

    Pipeline linestops isolate a section of pipe, stopping its flow. IFT provides the most advanced linestop services available today! Sizes from 1/2" - 60" on any type of pipeline.

  • Wall Tapping up to 120"

    Our wall tapping assemblies are used for hot tapping onto concrete walls, concrete storage tanks, and large diameter concrete conduits where a backing draw plate is impractical.

  • Insert Valve: 4", 6", 8, 10" & 12"

    IFT can install Insert Valves on a pipeline without shutting down the system. Valves can be installed indoors or outdoors, on chilled or domestic water, and on air lines. Our customers include hospitals, industrial companies, mechanical contractors, and municipalities.

  • Pipe Freezing: 1/2" - 36"

    Using liquid nitrogen, IFT, can isolate the problem area in the line by freezing the product inside the pipeline to form one or more solid freeze plugs. This allows for very little drain-down or refill, and in many cases, no system downtime.

IFT Leak Detection Freeze Plug Video

Jeff Maichel, owner of IFT's, http://www.Freezeplugs.com took this video in Wichita, Kansas providing pipeline freeze plug services on a 12" steel pipeline main that contained crude oil. The pipeline system was prepped by using a pipeline inspection gauge or 'pig' to perform various maintenance operations on a pipeline system also known as 'pigging'. Then water was added to replace the crude oil to help in the freezing process and leak locating. Jeff says, "chasing a leak and its a pretty minute leak, its only losing 1/10 of a pound every 20 minutes. Just about Christmas time. Working for Rose Rock, SemCrude/SemGroup and we will actually find the leak today. We narrowed it down a bit from 12 mile stretch down to 600 feet." 300 feet of pipe was exposed and the leak was promply located and repaired. A job well done using IFT's services.
