Dry Tapping


What is Dry Tapping?

Dry Tapping is simply tapping into an empty line or pressure vessel. Advantages are shorter lead times, usually a fraction of the cost, less time consuming than traditional bolt-ups and reduces risk of potential leaks by reducing the number of gasketed connections.


Dry Tapping is most commonly used for:

  • Replacing traditional cut-in tees, blow downs, air relief, etc. on newly constructed, dry pipelines with compatible style of tapping sleeve.
  • Providing a precision sized hole for sensitive monitoring probes or other access requirements
  • As a safety contingency on pipes or chambers that could unexpectedly surcharge
  • Probing abandoned or unknown pipe lines safely by eliminating risk of spark or exposure
