Midwest Chlorinating Inc. provides Line Tapping or Pressure Tapping services up to 20". The pressure tap procedure is a means of tapping a pressurized pipe without disrupting pressure or service upstream of the tap.
A pressure tap is first made by installing a suitable saddle or sleeve around the main that can retain the internal pressure of the main. A compatible valve with a clear bore is attached, through which the pressure tap is performed. Pressure taps can be performed to make a branch connection onto an existing line or be used to make a line stop to perform any necessary maintenance and be used to install an in-line valve under pressure.
