The Cold-Shot Pipe Freezing Kit from General Pipe Cleaners lets you repair an operating water system — without draining waterlines, sprinkler systems or hot-water systems — before cutting pipe or tubing.

Using carbon dioxide in dip-tube cylinders, the Cold-Shot freezes liquids in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum or plastic pipes, 1/8 to 2 inches in diameter.

Simply place the freeze head around the pipe, attach the hose and open the CO2 cylinder valve. Liquid CO2 flows into the Cold-Shot freeze head, forming an ice pack in the pipe capable of withstanding 7,000 psi.

Faster, more compact and less expensive than refrigerator-type units, the Cold-Shot can create an ice plug in copper tubing within five minutes and in steel pipe within three minutes. Unlike slower, less economical bag-type devices, the lightweight General Cold-Shot provides a much better seal and distributes the CO2 evenly around the pipe.

The Cold-Shot kit includes 10 sets of freeze heads, two high-pressure spiral hoses with injectors, rubber gloves, goggles and carrying case.
