PE Squeeze-Off Tools
Available from Reed Manufacturing Company
New PES6 and PES8 PE Squeeze-Off Tools compress polyethylene plastic tube/pipe to stop the flow of water or gas. When used properly, the pipe will return to its original shape and normal flow rates. These tools reduce man hours spent looking for buried shut off valves, reduce waste of water or gas and enable crews to get service restored quicker. The manual tools develop a clamping force by an operator physically turning a handle on a long screw. The hydraulic tool uses a pump and cylinder for easier clamping and is the operator-preferred tool. These squeeze tools use positive stops to prevent damage to the tube from over clamping. Reed tools come with standard stops usable on several large and small pipe sizes. One of the great features of Reed's squeeze tools is the wide variety of stops available to suit the needs of numerous utility companies.
