Prevent Pipes from Freezing in Your Facility
- Damage to equipment: When water in pipes freezes, it expands and can cause the pipes to burst. This can result in damage to equipment and machinery connected to the pipes, as well as any materials or products being transported through the pipes.
- Loss of productivity: If pipes freeze and burst, it can disrupt the flow of materials and products, leading to a loss of productivity. This can be especially detrimental in industries where time is of the essence, such as food processing or manufacturing.
- Safety concerns: Burst pipes can also pose a safety hazard to workers if they are in the vicinity when the pipes burst. In addition, if pipes freeze and burst in areas where hazardous materials are stored or transported, there is a risk of those materials being released into the environment.
- Financial costs: Repairing or replacing damaged equipment and machinery, and cleaning up any spills or leaks, can be costly. In addition, the loss of productivity can result in lost revenue.
