We provide comprehensive hot tapping and line-stopping services for industrial clients.

Our Hot Tapping and Line Stopping solutions prevent unwanted shutdowns and keep critical piping and pipeline systems online during tie-ins, relocations, repairs, retrofits, and routine maintenance.

We provide a completely bespoke package, from designing, manufacturing and installing the fittings on the system to performing the interventions.

These services are performed on lines of any material – stainless steel, carbon steel, ductile iron, etc. carrying any medium – fuel, diesel, steam, water, oil or gas. 

Hot Tapping

Hot Tapping uses an under-pressure drilling machine to cut a hole in an operating pipeline for a new branch connection without loss, leakage, or flow interruption. 

Typical Applications

  • Addition of a new branch connection
  • Product sampling point
  • Draining of pipelines

Line Stopping

Line Stopping, together with hot tapping, halts the flow in an operating pipeline and isolates and bypasses a section – allowing for repairs under normal operating conditions.
