CDI 5450 Hot Tap

Price Range: $1,205 – $2,835

The CDI 5450 is a modified version of the 5400 model that allows installation under pressure. It incorporates two valves through which the probes pass and a muffler that collects chips from the drilling process. It takes an equal amount of installation time as our standard meters and requires no shutdown of the compressed-air system.  View CDI 5450 Installation Video
