Logam Utara's involvement in the water industry has prompted
the supply of 3 main products, namely the under-pressure linetapping/linestopping
machines, pipes accessories such as coupling and flange adaptors
and pipe cutting machines.
COMPLETE WATER SYSTEM SHUTDOWNS THAT CREATE MAJOR SERVICE
DISRUPTIONS WHILE NEEDED REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT WORK IS BEING
The line-stopping machine or Hydra-Stop is a perfect complement
for the line tapping machines to perform more complex operations
such as a pipeline bypass and seamless pipeline repair work.
The Hydra-Stop provides new solutions to old distribution
system problems. Hydra-Stop equipment can be used to isolate
for repair or replacement of valves and hydrants in minutes
on any commonly used cast iron, asbestos cement, steel, ductile
iron or plastic pipes with accuracy and reliability. The Hydra-Tap
and Hydra-Stop are available for sizes 4?to 20?
Hydra-Tap system - Line tapping system
Weighing at 60-70 lbs, the light weight line-tapping machine,
also known as the Hydra-Tap makes pressure taps on gas or
water lines quickly and easily. The machine requires only
one operator, compared to the traditional tapping machine
that requires two, three or even more workers to perform a
simple hot tap. Besides reducing labor cost, the Hydra-Tap
is engineered to ease of maintenance with fewer moving parts,
designed to operate without costly and annoying malfunctions.
The lightweight machine also eliminates the need for expensive
blocking and bracing, often required for supporting traditional
heavy tapping equipments.
The machine is also designed for gas pipelines with a rating
of 250 p.s.i.. The Hydra-Tap uses pneumatic or hydraulic motor
drives. The only accessory you need for future taps is the
hot tapping sleeves, used as the pipeline tee off connections.
