Hot Taps -> Services Home

Hot Taps or pressure taps are different names for the same process. Hot Taps allow for a new branch connection without shut down of your piping system. Hot Taps are performed while your system remains live and under working pressure without any interruption of flow or services. Hot Tap connections can be performed on a multitude of line contents, such as hydrogen, hot and chilled water, steam, syltherm, natural gas, brine as well as many other elements.

Pro Tapping performs Hot Taps from 3/4" to 36", 360° around the main. Hot Taps are generally performed on carbon, stainless and galvanized steel, copper and brass, fiberglass and specialized materials used in refineries and pharmaceutical facilities. Hot Taps can be performed on angles, elbows, tanks, vessels and more.
