Hot Tapping

Hot tapping is the method of making a connection to existing pipe or pressure vessel without the interruption of emptying that section of pipe or vessel. This means that a pipe or tank can continue to be in operation whilst maintenance or modifications are being done to it.

Purcell’s Engineering has invested in the latest technology in hot tapping equipment. Supplied by Mirage Machine’s we are able to hot tap and line stop from 1 inch to 12 inches up to 1480psi.


Purcell’s Engineering provides a comprehensive range of on site solutions including emergency breakdowns, investing heavily into production capabilities such as the latest equipment, new technologies and advanced computerised machines to handle all project requirements.


Purcell’s Engineering is one of Central Queensland’s largest locally owned On-Site, Fabrication, Mechanical Project and Machining Workshops.
