Live Service Transfer
Live Service Transfer is a technique which allows a gas service to be partly re-laid and/or transferred to a new main without disrupting the customer’s gas supply.
A solution to the replacement of services to multi-occupancy properties, it also meets the need for renewing uninterruptible supplies such as shops, restaurants and hotels.
Live Riser Transfer is an enhancement of the system. Carried out by our contract service team, it enables the operator to replace an existing property entry point or modify internal pipework under live conditions.

An Under Pressure Tee (UPT) is fitted to the portion of the steel service remaining in commission. The new PE service is then laid and connected to this UPT.
After the foam has cured, a small section of the old service is cut out either side of the foam injection hole and Flexicaps are fitted.
FOAMSTOP™ and FOAMBAG™ kits, together with all the equipment required for Live Service Transfer, are available from Steve Vick International for customers to carry out their own operations.
