The Kleiss MCS systems allow utility companies to work on various pipe sizes, pressures, and materials with one flow stopping system. Having a single system that allows utilities the flexibility to work on all these differing pipelines offers great operational cost savings.
Each system has the ability to work on a range of pipe diameters. Pipe anywhere from 2" to 24" can be worked on.
The Kleiss MCS 0 to 60 psi systems are our most popular, but the ability to work on system pressures up to 120 psi are available.
While cast iron pipe is no longer used to expand gas utility systems, it is still present from earlier installations. The patented MDS stopper ensures odd sizes and thin walls are not an issue for Kleiss MCS systems.
Early versions of steel pipe were inconsistent in wall thickness and coating styles. With the use of the revolutionary Kleiss MCS systems, all pipe sizes and coating are accessible for easy repairs and maintenance.
Natural gas companies are becoming more concerned with the long-term effects of squeezing off PE. With the Kleiss MCS patented MDS stopper, you can safely stop off, repair, and maintain PE pipe with no residual impact on the pipeline material.
In the past, utility companies used a wide variety of pipeline materials, including some that no longer meet safety regulations. The MCS systems provide a safe and effective way to remove the PVC pipe that was installed previously.
