MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (October 13, 2020) – The new Enerpac MITT product line provides a safe and efficient method for inline piping isolations and localized pressure testing of new welds. The traditional method of oil and gas piping modification involves extensive flushing, chemical cleaning and drying followed by time-consuming filling, pressurizing and hydrotesting of full pipe runs. The MITT tool makes traditional chemical cleaning and system hydrotesting methods for piping modifications obsolete.
Inline tools like the Enerpac MITT series create a positive seal against the inside of a pipe for vapor-barriers during hot work and/or for pressure testing new welds during maintenance operations. Cleaning and steaming can be eliminated since lines do not have to be completely gas free. Inline tools provide sealing capability with the ability to monitor throughout hot work activities via hydrostatic pressure. They also provide venting capabilities with the ability to monitor upstream pressure build up.
When it comes to localized weld testing, inline tools reduce system down time and increases worksite safety by minimizing test medium volume. They save time and reduce costs by limiting the test area to only the new weld or welded component.
The new MITT series tools are the lightest weight tools on the market with higher test pressure capacity than any other mechanically actuated tools. The low profile, durable, aluminum construction allows one operator to lift, isolate and test behind elbows and tees with standard off-the-shelf tools. The MITT series tools are dual-purpose (isolation and hydrotest) tools that outperform other inline tools with more pipe schedules covered per tool, inexpensive seals and seal backing rings.
