The Tonisco hot tap process is designed so that we can use normal standard shut-off valves for the hot tap connection. This means that customer does not need to spend a lot of time and money on special hot tap components. Usually, in a low and medium pressure networks a normal weldolet + shut-off valve combination is sufficient solution. It gives the complete project more flexibility and more room for co-operation between contractors.
Tonisco Service is capable of making the hot tap connection to all the pipeline materials used in the district heating and cooling sector. The most common methods of hot tapping:
- Steel pipes: welding a reinforcement plate or a weldolet + shut-off ball valve
- PE pipes: Infusion welded hot tap saddle + Shut-off valve (Gate or ball valve)
- Other pipe materials: Mechanical Hot tap clamp + Shut-off valve (Gate of ball valve)
