Our total dedication and guarantee is yours. We will be a trustworthy partner and provide you with unparalleled value and cost savings.
MANUFACTURING OUR PIPE The (HTS-SAW) process offers qualitative and economical advantages. Exact geometrical tolerances are achieved by concentrating on the pipe geometry within the pipe forming machine. As a result, the process automated technique for carrying out the submerged arc welding of the pipe is used with consistently high quality without being influenced by pipe forming. Due to quality and cost improvements, the preference of the 2 step spiral welded pipe over the conventional longitudinal welded pipe is showing an upward trend not only in the domestic market but also in the world market where the curve is steeper. Our dedication to product quality starts before the steel arrives at the mill. We work with you and our alliance partners to ensure the product meets all of your technical and metallurgical requirements. Once the coils are received and verified, coil edges are milled to create an exacting, higher-quality welding surface. The spiral machine sets the required pipe diameter, forms the steel to exact specifications and tack welds the edges together. In a separate final welding process, interior and exterior welds are completed simultaneously, then the complete weld on all pipes is inspected with rigorous integrity testing processes through the hydro test, the automatic ultrasonic and finally radiography testing. Continuous high quality manufacturing right through to the point of application is at the heart of the PSL pipe manufacturing process. Our facility is fully equipped with the latest state of the art measuring and testing equipment. Checks are performed throughout the process by certified inspectors to verify the pipe conforms to all specifications. Each heat is subjected to an analysis of its chemical composition and mechanical properties to ensure it is keeping with the required tolerances. We test and check at frequencies exceeding those required by API to ensure no question relevant to quality is left open. Once all of our production and inspection steps are complete, Material Tests Reports are issued as our â€œQuality Guaranteeâ€? the product meets or exceeds the standards and customer requirements.
FLEXIBILITY Steel Pipe offers mechanical and physical characteristics that make it one of the most versatile products available. It is this versatility that allows structures and designs to be realized in a straightforward and economic manner.
Our mill setup offers the highest quality with varying degrees of flexibility that affords a wide range of pipe diameters and wall thicknesses to be produced in specific lengths up to 80 feet providing the opportunity for fewer field welding requirements than the traditional 40 foot lengths and the possibility for cost reductions as a result.
• Pipe Diameters 24” through 100” • Wall Thickness 0.250” through 1.000” • Lengths up to 80 ‘ • Grades API 5L Grade B up to X80 ASTM A252 Grades 1 – 3 ASTM A139 Grades A - E ASTM A1018 Grades 45 up to 80 AWWA C-200 • Major Pipeline Projects • Special Short Mill Runs • Pipe-yard capacity and on-site inventory storage • Alliance options for specific grade and dimension requirements. • Promise to evaluate all possibilities and much more
This flexibility allows us to offer spiral weld products for major API high strength pipelines, proprietary specifications and capabilities and to many structural applications at the most economical cost. We are able to do the unusual and somewhat unexpected.
COATING OPTIONS AND PROCESSES Coating is precision work. The coating professionals at PSL bring with them extensive knowledge and experience. Everything we do is geared toward our customersâ€™ requirements. We employ stringent work practices to ensure our coated pipe meets the requirements the first time. Our pipe coating plant is located adjacent to our pipe mill. This co-location provides not only convenience for our customers but cost savings as well. After our customer has accepted the prime pipe, it is moved from our pipe mill to our coating plant on a set of V rollers for external and/or internal coating. The types of coatings that we can apply at our mill include Fusion Bond Epoxy and Abrasion Resistant Overlay coating (ARO) on the outside and High Solids liquid epoxy flow liner and corrosion protection ID lining for the inside.
Like our pipe manufacturing, our coating processes meet or exceed regulatory and industry standards and customer specifications and requirements. Coatings add significant value to the customer in the manufacture of their pipe.
As your product moves through the manufacture, coating and shipping processes, PSL North America has a very unique crane-way system that runs the full length of our facility. This crane way is equipped with vacuum lifts to pick up pipe sections allowing for damage free movement. From beginning to end, we are committed to providing our customers with our exceptional quality guarantee.
The pipe doesnâ€™t stop once itâ€™s coated. Storage and Logistics are part of our service. Pipe are stacked, stored and shipped according to a set of strict regulations. Our facility is strategically positioned with a network of transportation options at its disposal. We find the best form of transportation to deliver your product safely and efficiently.
