What is Hot Tapping?
Hot tapping is defined as using a drilling machine to cut a hole into an in-service, under-pressure piping system. This is done without service interruption or product leakage. Typical applications of a Hot tapping include making a branch connection, initiating a bypass and allowing performance of a Line Stop. Components required to perform a Hot tapping normally include a fitting designed to contain system pressure, a valve used to control the new connection and a drilling or tapping machine.
