760 Tapping Machine


The TDW 760 tapping machine is designed for making 3-inch through 16-inch hot taps without pipeline shutdown. It also can be used for creating 3-inch through 14-inch (DN 80 to DN 350) tank taps and for setting completion plugs, including the LOCK-O-RING® and LOCK-O-RING Plus plugs.

The machine can be either air- or hydraulically operated with an optional dual drive and has a maximum working pressure of 100 bar (1,480 psi) at 38°C (100°F). It has an operating temperature range of -29°C (-20°F) to 371°C (700°F) at 48 bar (700 psi) for intermittent service and features a unique split-frame design for ease of packing replacement and reduced maintenance costs.

Key features:

  • Maximum continuous rating at 177°C (350°F) at 70 bar (1,025 psi).
  • Available with an optional flywheel for improved performance and reduced stress on gears.
  • Optional hydraulic feed system that helps pipeline owners and operators lower completion plugs during the plug setting process.
  • Meets NACE standard MR0175-93 (sulfide stress cracking resistant metallic material for oilfield equipment).
