T-203 Tapping Machine


Offering a unique combination of durability and precision, the TDW T-203 tapping machine can be used for making 4-inch through 12-inch hot taps in preparation for plugging machine applications on pipelines, tanks, and storage vessels. The machine is used primarily for the installation of TDW SHORTSTOPP® plugging machines; however, with an operating range of -29°C (-20°F) to 82°C (180°F) at 46 bar (675 psi), it is also suitable for use in a broad range of tapping operations where shutdown is simply not an option.

Key features:

  • Adjustable automatic feed rate of 0 to 1/8-inch per revolution.
  • Four-bolt attachment to valve adapter that ensures proper cutting alignment.
  • Lightweight (109 kg), low center of gravity (CG) design that allows for ease of use and operation.
  • Maximum operating pressure of 50 bar (740 psi) at 38°C (100°F).
