For over 100 years, Lincoln Electric has been assisting companies to construct pipelines across the United States and around the world. For quality pipe welds, you need quality equipment and consumables along with industry leading experience––that’s why we know pipelines.
Productivity challenges. Budget constraints. Consistent quality. And harsh conditions. If you’re managing a pipeline or building a new one, you have to juggle a handful of potential problems every day.
Having consistent and repeatable welds that keep your pipelines progressing are paramount to success.
We are proud to provide modular, mechanized welding systems to the pipeline industry, incorporating everything you may need for superior orbital welding of pipe. This includes the Orbital GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) and the Orbital GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) systems, each engineered for diverse applications in demanding environments.
The costs of developing deepwater discoveries into producing properties is driving the rise in the use of hub-and-spoke field arrangements. These spokes are fabricated on land at a spoolbase, and wound onto a ship, which in turn unwind into the ocean during installation.
The welding acceptance criteria of these pipes are some of the most stringent in the industry.
