Industrial Hot Tapping Services

Live Branch Connection Hot Tapping

DWS Mechanical have the capability to perform 'hot tapping' or 'live connection break-ins' onto steel pipework mains. This is a fairly new industry leading service that is saving time and money for many commercial and industrial businesses. There is a specific process we follow at DWS to ensure safe, precise and successful hot tapping. This is a method of providing a branched connection with an isolating valve to a live systems without interrupting or causing any shutdown.

 

What is the 'Hot Tapping' process?

The hot tapping process we follow is the initially weld a connection into place.  We then look to fit a full flow valve and drill out the tapping, whilst retaining the cut out. This then enables the valve to then be closed. The connection is then ready to be utilised without the need to drain down the system.

As well as designing the plant rooms and systems DWS can offer associated services you require:

Temporary or Back Up Boilers – Additional boilers installed externally and tapped in to the existing system, enabling the existing services to continue running whilst the installation works are carried out.

Electrical Installation Works – Complete installation and connection of electrical services required to establish power, lighting and system controls for operating the new equipment. Additional options can include operating alarms to alert of any operating issues, safety alerts and auto shut down in the event of gas escapes or system leaks and monitored maintenance packages upon completion.

Duct Work – Natural and mechanically pumped ventilation systems to ensure adequate air supply for combustion and cooling is always available to ensure optimum running conditions for plant room equipment.

Pump Sets – Single and twin headed pumps offer high efficiency and smart controls and are designed to distribute the buildings heating and water requirements as required and as demand increases, so do the pumps capacity.

Pipework – All required pipework is supplied and fitted to distribute the required services to and from the plant room out to the buildings services.
