With a Cold-Shot, you don’t have to drain water lines, sprinkler systems, or hot water systems before cutting pipe or tubing. It keeps a fully pressurized system operating while you make repairs.
The Cold-Shot freezes liquids in steel, copper, cast iron, aluminum and plastic pipes ranging from 1/8″ through 2″ (10 to 60mm) using carbon dioxide (CO2). Dip tube-type CO2 cylinders are available from any welding supply house.
The Cold-Shot works faster than “refrigerator-type” units, is more compact and less expensive. It’s faster and uses less CO2 than “bag-type” pipe freezers, because the freeze head makes a better seal around the pipe. In five minutes you’re ready to go to work on 1/2″ copper tubing, and just three minutes for cast iron pipe.
