Rapid Service Isolation

Rapid Service Isolation


Rapid Service Isolation is a safe method for cutting a live service, prior to dead insertion, in no-gas conditions.

This new technique developed by Steve Vick International allows an operative to isolate a metallic low pressure service under ‘no gas’ conditions to enable the service to be safely cut and subsequently dead inserted with a new PE pipe.

Currently, the technique is available for low pressure services (up to 75 mbar) with diameters from ¾” to 1¼”, but it is envisaged that larger diameters will subsequently be added.
