If it is necessary to make a hole in the pipeline with internal overpressure of the medium due to the construction of a branch, temporary closing of the pipeline, bypass, etc., we perform leak-free tapping of the pipeline. The tapping is usually carried out using a special pipe-mounted fitting and a closing element which closes, after the drilling, or through which the fitting can be sealed after performing the service work. For branches, the tapping is done via the branch inbuilt plugging element or, if the branch material allows it, after tapping the branch can be compressed with a suitable compressing element or the pipeline can be closed in another suitable way, e.g. by ballooning, stopling etc. For drilling under pressure, we always use equipment of our own production, e.g KNS-F1, COMPACT-F1 and others.
