Suitable for topside and subsea application, the MORGRIP Hot Tap Clamp enables the Tee fitting to be secured to the pipework without the need for hotwork i.e. welding.

Based on our split sleeve clamp product range, the body of the clamp is modified with a flanged tee piece to suit the hot tap tooling.
