Our Pipestoppers® come in all different shapes and sizes. Pictured is a 64" Inflatable Pancake Stopper, they are manufactured from 6 - 96".
Each Stopper is fitted as standard with a Schrader Valve for inflation and deflation. Inflation can be carried out easily by connecting a hand or foot pump or compressor and deflation by depressing the pin inside the Valve.

Freeze it and make your Pipe Repair Easy!
Accu-Freeze™, the controlled liquid nitrogen (LN2) pipe freezing system is a method to freeze stationary liquids in a selected section of a pipe or tubing for repair or maintenance work.
By controlling the surface temperature of the pipe, Accu-Freeze™ can safely and accurately form an in-line ice plug, capable of withstanding 138 bar (2000 Psi) in pipes up to 12" (300 mm diameter).

Titanium Racecar Welded in our Flexible Welding Enclosure®
In his workshop in Santa Rosa, California, retired CEO Bob Lee is recreating a famous Can-Am racecar that was destroyed in 1973. This car was the first Monocoque road racecar to make extensive use of titanium.

With over 40 years of experience of welding titanium, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have become very involved in this project, providing equipment and technical assistance where required.

The Ti22 titanium suspension, bulkheads and subframe will be welded inside HFT’s 60” Flexible Welding Enclosure® providing a very fast purging time down to a few parts per million of oxygen ensuring oxide free zero coloured titanium welds are achieved.
