The TDW SHORTSTOPP® bolt-on 3-WAY™ tee is designed for use with SHORTSTOPP plugging machines and TDW tapping machines. The tee eliminates the need to install a valve on the connection during pipeline maintenance activities, such as tie-ins, crossovers, main relocations, bypasses, and line extensions.
Like SHORTSTOPP bolt-on fittings, SHORSTOPP bolt-on 3-WAY tees have a maximum working pressure of 4 bar (60 psi) at 51°C (150°F) and meet ASME B31.8 standards. They are available in sizes 2 inches through 12 inches. Tees measuring 4 inches and above can accomodate TDW SHORTCUTT® valves.
- Side outlet can be plugged with TDW SHORSTOPP plugging machine equipment at pressures as high as 4 bar (60 psi).
- Available in top seal or circumferential end seal design for fitting-to-main attachment.
- Fitting package includes top half, bottom half, bolts, nuts, O-ring seals, gaskets, completion plug, and blind flange or cap.
