Tap live mains without service disruptions

Hot Tap Tool

The McElroy Hot Tap Tool is the most precise and economical way to tap through 2", 3", 4" or 6" branch saddles. The gland is customized to meet the user's material of choice, eliminating the need for material compatibility fusion in the field.

Main line contamination is eliminated by containing continuous chips in the cutter, ahead of the coupon, then retracting them out of the main. Tool components are butt fused together, eliminating the need for safety chains. The gland fitting of the tool includes a packing seal for safety, ensuring no leakage around the cutter drive shaft and a test valve. The McElroy Hot Tap Tool is long enough to meet or exceed ASTM standards for squeeze off dimensions or it can be used with a ball valve.
