The Freeze Master is easy to use. Just connect the purpose designed freeze heads to the pipework, upstream and down-stream of the area you want to work on. In as little as 5 minutes, two solid ice plugs can be formed allowing you to carry out your repair quickly and efficiently. It will freeze copper, iron, lead or plastic pipes.
It is safe to use. You can leave the machine unattended and as long as it is connected to the mains the freeze will continue indefinitely. Unlike a gas freezing method, where a cylinder may run out, there is no danger of ice melting and flooding.
The Freeze Master is not just an alternative to draining down. It represents a fast, clean, efficient and highly professional new service for you.
With freeze heads which fit pipes up to 42 mm, the 420D is made both for domestic and light industrial use. The machine is self-regulating, able to control and maintain temperatures.
Like all Freeze Master machines it uses only ozone-friendly refrigerants; a comforting thought when you’re working in a confined space. Its operating parameters are calibrated to allow colder mean temperatures with greater sensitivity to unwanted heat pick-up: from a warmer ambient temperature for example, or from the heat of a plumber’s blow torch. The result is a stronger, longer freeze block.
A sloping instrument panel in the tray gives more space for hoses and freeze heads, while specially designed pegs keep the reducer fittings in place. And with a console-mounted on-off switch for safer, easier use plus steel reinforced hoses with rubber hose protectors, the Freeze Master is at the forefront of today’s plumbing technology.
