Hot Tapping

Hot Tapping is the method of making a connection to an existing pipeline while it remains operating and under pressure. The installation of a welded fitting or mechanical hot tap clamp provides a branch or off-take allowing connection to be made to a process piping or pipeline safely, without interrupting or depressurising the system.
