HOT TAPPING & PLUGGING SERVICE

ECONO -SEAL ARE INDUSTRIAL LEAK REPAIR SPECIALIST

Despite the scope, complexity, or place of a pipeline design, hot tapping is the preferred method for conducting maintenance, repairs, or correction work that needs performing safe entrance into a live, pressurized line. The technology additionally offers pipeline owners and operators to confine and avoid sections of the pipeline so they can achieve their projects without closing down the system or losing product.

Fittings

The first step in the hot tapping process occurs when the trained operator links a low or high-pressure fitting to a pipeline.  The pipeline may require a welded nipped or potentially a full encirclement.   A completion plug may be used to stop product flow after the technician completes the tap and removes the valve.

 

Repair Wraps

A Technician will use a sleeve for all their repairs. Regardless if the repair is permanent or temporary our technicians find great success on the pipelines regardless of the diameter size.
 

Machines

Econo seal can perform on any tapping system regardless of the design of the pipeline.   Our technicians have systems in place to work with any diameter, pressures, and compositions.  The technicians use special machines to create a hole to make a link into a live pipeline.
 
 
 

Isolation

in order to safely complete pipeline maintenance, our trained technicians will keep the area isolated from workers wondering into the area.
 

Valves

When Econo Seal cuts out a curved section of a pipeline wall and pulls it out from between the fitting and the hot tapping machine, they are doing this to make the work more efficient and safer.

 

 

Welding

Our technicians prepare the lines for any changes and to fix any damage on the pipeline. All of our work is completed by our trained welders who follow the general welding code.
