Hot Tap Installation Without A Pressurized Glove Box

As process systems and facilities grow, there usually comes a time when new fume exhaust components need to be added to existing vent duct configurations.

For most facilities, it can be extremely costly and disruptive to take systems offline in order to make such upgrades. Fortunately, PSP® exhaust duct systems are capable of remaining in-service (hot) while saddle tap installation procedures are performed.

The instructional below focuses specifically on how to perform a hot tap installation on PSP® fume exhaust duct without the use of a glove box. For hot tap installations using a pressurized glove box, please follow this link.

4" - 14" PSP-EZ Duct Installation

Time is money, and when you're in the midst of a vent pipe installation or overhaul, reductions in installation time can have a significant impact on the total cost and ROI of your project.

Fab-Tech's PermaShield Pipe (PSP®) is already known to reduce installation labor by a significant margin, but there's an even faster and easier installation option that's available for those who specify PSP-EZ™ duct. 

When you specify PSP-EZ™ for a system joint, a single fastener and band-style clamp configuration is employed in place of companion angle rings with multiple fasteners. The EZ-Clamp joining mechanism provides safe, reliable joints without sacrificing system flexibility or integrity.
