FIELD MACHINING

Where the high temperatures and sources of ignition required by hot cutting are not desirable, air- or hydraulically-powered pipe cutting machines are used. Our in-house team members are carefully selected to form an integral part of our field machining department with extensive experience and skill sets to engineer specific solutions.

HOT TAPPING


Hot tapping is a method of making a connection to existing piping or pressure vessels without the interruption of emptying that section of pipe or vessel. This means that a pipe or tank can continue to be in operation while maintenance or modifications are being conducted. This process is also used to drain off pressurized casing fluids. Experienced technicians in full coordination with customer and site personnel perform a wide variety of Hot Tap services.
