ALARA Designs, Inc. has developed a long reach hot tap tool that will help keep your workers out of harm’s way while applying a hot tap. ALARA Designs also makes other long reach tools that may be of interest.
The SAFE-SADDLE uses the SAFE-REACH and SAFE-THREAD systems together. Expected maximum pressure is 150psi depending on body and o-ring material. In most low pressure D&D applications the combination of 6061-T6 aluminum body and a low durometer Nitrile o-ring is appropriate. Stainless steel (303, 304, or 316L) and alternate o-ring materials are available. The SAFE-SADDLE is designed for use with common 3/4" NPT interface tapping tee's for example the CTT from APEX Machining.
The SAFE-SADDLE deployment system allows for remote placement of piping saddles. The saddle is designed for somewhat easy removal.
Re-use is not recommended.
