What is Hot Tapping you ask?
Hot Tapping allows contractors to tie into an existing pipeline that carries such things as natural gas, or petroleum without having to perform what is called a shutdown of that existing line. If a shutdown is performed this would cause the contractor performing the task to have to purge out any existing gas or petroleum left to tie into that pipeline. This in return would cause a loss of the product that had to be purged, wasting time and money, and potentially harming the environment. The hot Tapping process is not only environmentally friendly but is also cost-effective saving money, the process also allows no downtime or flow of product to the end user. In short, Hot Tapping allows the product to still flow through the pipes while the task is being performed, saving money, time, and the environment.
Pipeline Products is here to help you the contractors that perform such a task with any special projects that may arise. We are also here to perform any general machine shop task as well (within our capabilities). Our shop houses several manual machines which allow us to manufacture small runs of parts with a quick turnaround. A list of some of the parts we manufacture are cutters, cutter holders, small hole saw holders, tapping adapters, special shafts, completion flanges, plugging heads, extended drills, twist drills, drive rings, pilot bosses, pivoting heads, drive collars, packing wrenches, spanner wrenches, swivel handles, spade holders, boring bars, and measuring rods just to name a few of the items we offer. Pipeline Products is here for all your general machine shop and hot tapping task. Reach out today and speak with one of our staff regarding your specialty project or any of your hot tapping needs.
