About us @ HottapMachines.com


Thank you for visiting our site.


Established in 1980, IFT has been involved in critical pipeline solutions around the globe, and at the same time, has been slowly evolving into 2LBin.com/HottapMachines.com; building all the equipment on this site.

From keying on large diameter sewage bypasses for the city of Las Vegas, to complicated water system conversions for San Salvador, IFT has performed many thousands of hot taps, live valve installations, pipe freezes, line stops, and valve inserting operations. We apply all that experience in building our hottap equipment.

Developing simple, dependable machinery for critical projects, and pushing beyond what is expected, is our philosophy. Our equipment and products have been forced to perform in unpredictable situations; and the stuff that works is offered for sale, the stuff that does not, is torched or copied by others.

IFT begin in the service world over 30 years ago. It is a challenging, active, and intense industry that is unforgiving of mistakes and malfunctions. So choose your tools wisely, like we do, and use what was developed by the best, here on this site, and our other sites.

If you buy 2lbin.com/HottapMachines.com equipment our service department is available to you for questions so that your company will experience success.
