Our full-encirclement tapping tee is designed to ensure a reliable, gas tight connection. The tee features a patented ratchet-style cutter that not only creates the port for gas flow, but securely locks the tee onto the gas main, preventing any movement or loosening of the connection. In addition, the cutter’s locking sleeve is designed for minimal protrusion into the main, thereby allowing efficient pigging of the line.
Save Time and Money vs. Heat Fusion
In today’s competitive environment, utilities and contractors are looking for the most efficient method of installing gas services including tapping into a new or existing gas main. What these installers are finding is that PermaLock tees take only one person as little as five minutes to install without any expensive fusion equipment or extensive training.
Field studies prove PermaLock mechanical tees save as much as 50% compared to fusion methods.
