Line Stopping


What is Line Stopping?

Line stopping or line plugging is a means of isolating a piping system to provide a temporary shut off where none exists. This process serves as a control, or temporary valve, that is removed after alterations or valve replacements have been made.


Line Stopping is most commonly used for:

  • Line relocation
  • Replacement of defective valves
  • Dead ending (abandoning) lines
  • Temporary bypass
  • Installation of process equipment
  • Material testing
  • Leak repairs

Our technicians have worked with virtually every type of piping and vessel in service, from fragile asbestos cement pipe to carbon steel tanks.
