Hot Tap Equipment and Systems

Petersen® Hot Tap Pipe Plug Insertion System:

Time and cost can be reduced considerably by using a Petersen® Hot Tap Pipe Plug Insertion System to stop the flow in a pressurized pipeline. There are basically two systems for plug insertion through a hot tap. Contact Petersen to discuss how this system may be adapted to your project.

2" to 96" Multi-Flex® Hot Tap Insertion High Pressure Plugs:

This HT Multi-Flex ® Plug is configured for installation through a hot tap. The Plug has an internal stiffener and a directional shoe on one end for installation through a hot tap and around a 90 degree bend. These Plugs generally have a woven ballistic nylon reinforced polyurethane outer ply but may be customized for a customer's specific requirements.

Pressure range: 4-90 psig

Almost any size Multi-Flex® Line Stop Plugs:

This LS Multi-Flex ® Plug is often used for line stopping and may be installed through a hot tap. These Plugs have a woven ballistic nylon reinforced Polyurethane outer ply and may be manufactured to meet a customer's specific pressure and chemical requirements. This Plug may have the inflation port on the diameter or the end, and is available for almost any size pipeline requirements.

Pressure range: 15-160 psig

1/2" to 6" Hot Tappers:

Tap live, pressurized pipelines without interruption. Economical tool allows tapping any size pipeline with 1/2" to 6" tap. Available with bi-metal or carbide grit cutters.

Made with Viton o-rings.

Maximum pressure: 120 psig

Pneumatic Heavy Duty HydraulicTappers:

The 262-2040 Hot Tapping Machine is designed for hot tapping while the existing pipeline is pressurized. Various cutter housings and cutter sizes can be used with the Hot Tapping Machine to perform a wide array of pipeline services including hot tapping and line stopping.

Completion Plugs:

Completion Plug allows for removal of Hot Tap Valve

Hot Tap Sleeves:

These hot tap sleeves are fast and easy to install with simple hand tools, require no caulking or special equipment and may be used with any standard tapping valve.

Body is made of carbon steel, Flanges of AWWA C207 Class D, ANSI 150 lb. drilling, Gasket is Nitrile, Bolts, nuts, and washers are of a high strength low alloy steel with heavy semi-finished hexagon nuts, and the Finish is fusion bonded Fexi-Coat epoxy, coated to an average of 12 mil thickness.

Hot Retrieval Systems:

The retrieval system saves time and cost by facilitating an easy way to pull the Insertion Ram and plugs out of the pipeline back into the Launch Cylinder without the need for hoists or cranes. The retrieval device uses many of the same components as the Insertion System to simplify inventory. Contact Petersen to discuss how this system may be adapted to your project.
