Rangeline Tapping Services Completes Critical Hot Tap Project for City of Houston

Critical Hot Tap Project for City of Houston Avoids Shutdown.

When the City of Houston, Texas wanted to upgrade their wastewater treatment plant, they called Rangeline to upgrade their system. Rangeline Tapping Services, the longtime provider of wet tapping, hot tapping and valve insertion services throughout North America, was contacted to bypass the City of Houston’s largest treatment plant.

As operator of one of the largest selections of specialty tapping and line-stopping equipment in the country, Rangeline is known for delivering innovative solutions that keep facilities operating with minimal downtime.

Rangeline’s Tapping Services are utilized to prevent unwanted shutdowns and keep critical piping and pipeline systems online, without interruption, during tie-ins, relocations, repairs, retrofits, and routine maintenance. For the Houston, Rangeline’s team of service professionals were able to evaluate the W.W.T.P. and propose a plan that was able to keep the plant up and running while the new upgrades were being preformed. To bypass a major section of the plant, two 36” hot taps were utilized. These hot taps were preformed vertically to allow the bypass piping to be installed. Because Rangeline uses the most modern cutting tools and techniques, the hot tapping machine cut through the steel main flawlessly.

Hot tapping, also known as wet tapping, is the cutting of a hole in an existing pressure main. A tapping sleeve and valve are used to facilitate the cutting of the hole in the main while under pressure, providing a permanent branch connection. This can be performed on all types of pipes and under many flow and pressure conditions without interruption to the system.

Rangeline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. They stock fittings for most applications and have equipment, material and service technician’s standing by. Rangeline can be ready to mobilize within just one hour and has a toll free emergency hot line number for customers needing immediate assistance.
