Small-Bore Hot Tapping and Plugging
The patented BI-STOP™ provides a unique hot tap and plugging system to address challenges with small-bore pipework that have absent or limited isolation facilities. This cost-effective solution enables small-bore pipework to be isolated, cut and if required, terminated with a full-bore valve whilst the system remains live. The BI-STOP allows maintenance or remediation activities to be carried out safely and reliably, eliminating the need for a system shutdown.
- Provide a temporary isolation to facilitate pipework repair or modification
- Install a system specified full-bore valve where isolation facilities are absent or limited
- Cap and terminate dead leg or redundant pipework
- Provide a permanent or temporary pipework tie-in
