HOTTAP MACHINES

Tapping Machines

  • We can design specifically for your requirements.
  • All Models are designed for operation upto 100 bar (1470psi) and 200 C.
  • They are able to cut up to 3″ wall thickness mild steel.
  • They are able to cut stainless steel, API Gr.B and API 5L X80 and concrete.
  • They are capable of installing LOR and flow through plugs.
  • Our machines are compatible with TD Williamson or Furmanite equipment.
  • Machines have powered feed for cutting that is proportional to the spindle rpm and rapid travel.
  • A special feature is our unique measuring system. A scale along the body of the machine accurately indicates the travel of the drill spindle, removing the need for a measuring rod protruding from the machine and consequent danger to personnel. It also significantly reduces the amount of excavation required when drilling horizontally.

Hydraulic Power Pack 23 HP and 38 HP Diesel

  • Compact and powerfui.

  • Our hydraulic power packs are designed to fit inside most vans.

  •  The power packs are air cooled diesel engine surrounded by a protective frame ensures minimum maintenance.
