Hot tapping

We offer hot tapping on pressurized pipe systems in operation for new branch connections with minimal impact on media and distribution.

 

Advantages of Hot Tapping

– No interference in the distribution or loss of medium
– Eliminates the emission of harmful substance in the environment
– Reduces service time and scheduling of interruption in production / delivery
– Works successfully on all pressurized pipes of any type

Type of substance

Water, hot water, steam, compressed air, gas, lye, sludge, glycol, alkalis, oils etc.

 

Process

A sleeve coupling is welded or screwed with band clamp on the pipe to be drilled. A closure valve is then mounted

 

… and then a drilling rig with a drive equipment, such as an electric motor or a pneumatic motor. The pipe is now prepared for drilling. We close the valve and a new connection is in place.
