We perform these services while your system remains live and under working pressure — saving you time and money!

Hot Tap is defined as using a drilling machine to cut a hole into an in-service, under-pressure piping system. Hot tapping is a process of cutting holes into pipe, tanks, or any pressurized vessel without interrupting system function and with no release or loss of product. Hot taps permit new tie-ins to existing systems, the insertion of devices into the flow stream, permanent or temporary bypasses, and are the preparatory stage for line plugging.
