Code compliant hot tapping and plugging fittings from T.D. Williamson
T.D. Williamson (TDW), the global pipeline solutions provider, is releasing a standard offering for isolation fittings that fully complies with the new EN-13480 code, the European standard that replaces national codes in many countries.
With their all-new engineered design—which the company calls the ProSeries Advantage—the TDW STOPPLE and STOPPLE Plus fittings meet EN-13480's high standard for safety.
Full compliance with EN-13480 means STOPPLE fittings with the ProSeries Advantage demonstrate strict adherence to the relevant code's stringent requirements.
"Thanks to state-of-the-art, model-based engineering, TDW guarantees STOPPLE and STOPPLE Plus fittings are validated to EN-13480, without deviation or bypass," Senior Product Manager David Stordeur said. "Traceable, verifiable and complete records support our design parameters and we welcome our customers to audit our work."
The ProSeries Advantage ensures shorter lead time through a standardized product with high quality materials and a quality-controlled process. In addition, it optimizes on-site welding time.
Available for 4-inch through 36-inch STOPPLE and STOPPLE Plus systems in ANSI Class 600, each fitting is fully compatible with TDW equipment and is suitable for multiple applications and operating conditions.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
