Pipe Freezing Services for Enabling New Pipework


Senseco Sprinkler Systems Ltd needed our Liquid Nitrogen Pipe Freezing Services at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London.


IDWe Ltd were asked to freeze a 100mm sprinkler main at a high level, because of the size of the water pipework system at the Excel Exhibition Centre.

Attend the site during normal working hours to carry out our services.

Pipe Freezing Solution

  • Firstly, our engineers supplied and erected a scaffold tower to gain access to the high level pipework.


  • After that we attached pipe freeze jackets to the 100m sprinkler main pipe and poured in liquid nitrogen.


  • Senseco Sprinkler Systems Ltd installed the new section of pipework once the pipe freeze had taken hold.


  • On completion of works, our engineers released the pipework freeze and checked for leaks.


  • Finally, we cleaned up the area and disposed of all unnecessary items at a nearby waste/recycling centre.



IDWe Ltd worked with the sprinkler contractor to pipe freeze a 100mm sprinkler main in order to for works to take place.

The ExCeL Exhibition Center is an expansive venue and the implementation of Pipe Freezing Services to isolate the area led to minimal system interruptions.

Inconclusion, it was highly cost effective to use liquid nitrogen to carry out pipework freezing for the works to take place.

Senseco Sprinkler Systems were pleased with how we conducted our services and the quick turn around time.
