Mueller Co. has introduced a line stopping solution designed specifically for polyethylene (PE) pipes distributing natural gas.
The Shur Stop™ PE Line Stopping System incorporates Mueller Co.’s well-known NO-BLO® technology providing leak-free performance. It increases the safety of utility workers by giving them complete control of natural gas flow during stop off. The Shur Stop PE system is a safe alternative to pipeline “squeezing” techniques historically used by the natural gas industry.
After removing a small coupon of the polyethylene pipe, the mechanical stopper is inserted into the pipe and expanded to safely shut off natural gas flow so pipe service operations can occur.
