The Carber T.S.E. Isolation Service safely isolates a line for hot-work, guaranteeing safe keeping of property, equipment and personnel. Installing a plumber’s plug or similar device and hoping for the best is never best practice. CARBER® technicians are ready to install our isolation tool to make your hot-work project safe, allowing your project to be done quickly, at a lower cost and significantly reduced risk when compared to traditional methods.
The Isolation tool eliminates extensive cleaning, blinding, scaffolding and line preparation. These functions add significant time and manpower to any job, which equates to a higher cost and increased duration. Additionally lines do not need to be 100% gas free in order to perform hot work. The isolation system of Carber T.S.E. is therefore preferred due to the elimination of this extensive work.
The patented Isolation tool provides a triple vapour barrier with the ability to monitor the seal to ensure safety of any hot-work being performed. First, the tool is placed into the line upstream of where hot-work is to be performed. Once the tool is properly installed and two outer seals are established, medium is brought to pressure in the annulus between the seals. Once this pressure is established, the seals are actively monitored by the Carber technician on-site to be certain no harmful or dangerous vapors are passing beyond the isolation tool. This service guarantees a 100% positive pressure vapor barrier!
The Isolation Tool also has a provision for the safe disposal of upstream vapors away from the area of hot work (usually 15 meters). The upstream activity is also monitored to ensure the safety of the hot-work herein. If the assigned Carber T.S.E. technican detects a change in the upstream activity, hot work is stopped immediately until the situation is resolved.
Because it is the absolute safest technology available, the Isolation Tool of Carber T.S.E. is written into countless hot-work procedures and facility standards across the country confirming that safety is a high priority in these operating entities. Not only is the Isolation tool safer than traditional methods, it decreases cost and downtime.
