A MORGRIP Hot Tap Tee Clamp is a modification of our structural repair clamps but with the addition of a flanged tee branch for the mounting of the hot tap system or pipeline bypass.

Manufactured in two halves to enable installation on to the pipe, the sealing arrangement provides full containment around the hot tap location. The gripping section provides a fully permanent structural repair that can be DNV Product certified.

The hot tap tee clamp is application specific and designed, forged and fabricated to the exact requirements of the operator and hot tap location. This bespoke service ensures a fully configurable solution of the highest quality.

Suitable for onshore, topside, diver installed or deepwater remote repair, our engineered MORGRIP clamps provide an increased level of safety and reassurance when repairing critical pipelines or being stored as part of an emergency pipeline repair system or contingency plan.
