What is Hot Tapping?
The method of making a connection to existing piping or pressure vessels without interruption of service. This means that a pipe or tank can continue to be in operation while system expansion or modifications are being done.
Hot Tapping is most commonly used for:
- New T-Connections
- Main Line
- Trunk Line
- Service Line
- Blow downs and air valves
- Installation of instrumentation
- Pipe and vessel sampling
- Installation of pigging equipment
Our technicians have worked with virtually every type of piping and vessel in service, from fragile asbestos cement pipe to carbon steel tanks.
