Pipelines are used to transport products such as natural gas, drinking water, and petroleum to cities throughout Arizona. They are also central to wastewater treatment facilities, whether they are privately or publicly owned and operated.
These conduits – essential to cities and towns – are fabricated, maintained, and repaired by licensed welders skilled in pipe welding.
Through pipe welding, stainless pipes are joined together, but only after the proper preparations have been made. The steps required to prepare the metal for welding include cutting, grinding, and tacking. Additional measures may be necessary depending on whether new pipelines are being laid or existing pipes are being repaired.
While either metal inert gas (MIG) and tungsten inert gas (TIG) may be utilized during the process, the welder will make the final determination, ensuring the welding method is compatible with the project. Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), which involves creating an arc between the electrode and pipe, is another excellent choice for pipe welding as it allows for a protective coating.
Industries Requiring Pipe Welding
A need for high-quality pipelines is needed in various industries. Both privately and publicly operated companies, along with local city and town governments, could benefit from the services of a licensed and insured welder with pipe welding expertise. That is true whether they need new pipes installed in their wastewater treatment plant or repairs made to existing lines in their petroleum facility.
