During plant operations, unit expansions or new construction tie-ins, you need entry into live piping systems.
Innovator Industrial Services achieves these live tie-ins through specialized pressure-contained drills – hot taps.
We fabricate split tee or nozzle fittings, its fit-up and on-line welding installation, and drill into the live line to tie-in new piping.

Hot tapping, also known as pressure tapping or live tapping, is a method used to create a connection to an existing pressurized pipeline while it is still in operation, allowing for modifications or additions without shutting down the entire system.
Line stopping is a technique used to temporarily stop the flow of fluids within a pipeline for maintenance, repairs, or modifications, enabling work to be done downstream of the stopping point while the upstream section remains operational.
We specialize in line sizes up to 16″. However, larger sizes can be accommodated upon request. Please contact us for specific inquiries.
We offer a turn-key solution, including designing and fabricating hot tap fittings, providing field installation and welding services, performing hot tap tie-ins, and installing and monitoring line stops.
We cater to various industries, including oil and gas, water utilities, chemical processing, and more. Our services can be customized to meet the specific needs of each industry.
We prioritize safety and adhere to strict safety protocols throughout the process. Our technicians are trained and experienced in working with pressurized systems, and we follow industry-standard safety guidelines to minimize risks.
Hot tapping can generally be performed on various pipeline materials, such as steel or stainless steel. The suitability for hot tapping depends on factors like material thickness, pressure rating, and other considerations. We assess the specific requirements for each project to ensure feasibility.
Yes, line stops are reversible. Once the necessary work downstream of the stopping point is completed, the line stop equipment can be removed, and the flow can be restored in the pipeline.
The duration of a project varies depending on factors like pipeline size, complexity, and the specific requirements of the job. We provide estimates and timelines based on the project scope during the initial consultation phase.
