SureTap Hot Tapping Machines

The SureTap® range of proprietary hot tapping machines provide performance and reliability for critical, high pressure tapping operations. Designed and built to incorporate industry leading features, the SureTap range incorporates a double block and bleed sealing configuration allowing taps to be performed safely on a wide range of pipeline materials and mediums, including use with sour (H2S) products. A positive retention pilot drill system has been incorporated to ensure robust securing and recovery of the cut pipeline coupon. As standard, all SureTap machines are suitable for onshore, topsides or subsea operation and are fully compatible with industry standard tapping equipment including the deployment and recovery of completion plugs.
