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.

 

 

thermo-well is pushed inside the weldone fittingThe valve is opened and the thermo-well is pushed past the valve and is threaded into the inside thread of the "weld-on" fitting.

 

 

Pressure Sealed of by Thermo-well and Valve removedWhen properly installed, the pressure is sealed off by the thermo-well and the temporary valve can be removed.
