HILTAP’s origins are in the nuclear industry, where the first application was a dynamic connection to convey cryogenic liquids through hoses into radioactive areas to freeze, then ‘ice-o-late’ via pipe clamping jackets to reactor heat transfer core feeder pipes. HILTAP continues to modify standard products that allow nuclear plant operators and waste storage and treatment custodians to reduce exposure to occupation radiation. The goal is to make operators’ exposure as infrequent as possible. HILTAP enhances all product offerings to allow rapid connect ability for time saving hand tool, hydraulic tool or manipulator operability.

Since pipe cleaning is accomplished by compression of the pig wiper discs against the pipe wall, the wiper discs will bend into a chevron pattern in the direction of travel as the pig moves though the pipe. Though most of our pigging systems allow the pig to stay in the system between product transfers, pigs are a wear component and will require routine inspection and periodic replacement.

Hiltap Fittings Ltd. :: Products - cryogenics

The very first HILTAP connector was used as a liquid nitrogen transfer coupling replacing a flange, in a 'freeze plug' procedure in a nuclear plant's reactor heat exchange piping. Â space simulation chambers, piping connections, hose connections liquid & gas transfer, quick access closures, etc. HILTAP's latest couplings are used in cryogenic temperature control transportation applications.
