Thermo-well Inserting Services:

IFT Thermo-well inserting is the installation of temperature sensing wells into existing systems without a shutdown. IFT can provide thermo-wells and/or install your thermo-wells without interrupting service. A number of thermo-well models are available for a wide range of temperature applications, pressures, and types of pipelines. Monitoring equipment, available, varies from basic on-line thermo-meters to high tech microprocessor temperature controllers.

2D weldone fitting being connected to pipe

A wide variety of thermo-wells can be installed into any type of pipeline. In this particular case, the pipeline is steel and the "Weld-on" fitting is welded to the pipe. With non-weldable pipe, a bolt-on saddle may be supplied. The "Weld-on" assembly has been welded to the pipeline and a temporary access valve has been installed and pressure tested. After testing the fitting and temporary valve, the hot tap can be made into the pipeline. After the drill is retracted above the valve, the valve is closed and the tapping machine is removed from the line.

 

2D thermo-well on temporar access valveThe thermo-well is held by a hex socket that has an allen screw to retain the thermo-well. The housing containing the thermo-well is screwed onto the temporary access valve.

Testimonials

"We were impressed with Jason, he represented your company very well on the job in Yuma. We’ve had vendors/workers in the past who show up, fumble around and are not totally familiar with their equipment. Not the case with Jason, he was professional, prepared and jumped right in and got started."

- Craig Hochheimer,
City of Yuma, AZ

"I just wanted to take a minute to thank and commend you on your team selection and the gentleman who performed the work out here at NIH for us last week. Tom and his partner were on time, and performed their work with the utmost professionalism. This is a very high profile project for my firm and for NIH and your technicians made us look very good and in fact helped us solve a big testing problem."

- Michael McReady,
JCM Associates, Inc.

"City broke off a 2" air relief valve on a 16" ductile sewage pipeline with 45psi. Before the valve could be replaced we had to rush out and complete a 16" linestop. The linestop was successful with a 100% plug. On the left is the thank you letter from the City ."

- James W. Pinkerton,
Manager, City of Kingston, Tennessee
