There are no small diameter (≤25mm) PE tapping Tee’s available in the market place as the method of renewal has always been to isolate the service and tie in dead (no gas), this means that on every occasion we must interrupt the customer temporarily to work on their service pipe and to do the necessary work. There are now materials available for 32mm services and above, this challenge relates to small diameter gas service pipes.
The objective of the project is to deliver:
  • Concept and design of fitting
  • Detailed concept technical specification
  • Manufacture of prototypes and workshop testing
  • Lab report of prototypes and tests
