Pipe welding downhill is frequently used in building pipelines, but not in refineries due to the quality of the resulting welds.

Pipe Welding Downhill: Orbital Brings the Benefits Without the Disadvantages

By Orbital Welding, Pipe Welding No Comments

Pipe welders are required to weld in multiple positions—flat, vertical, and overhead—as they work their way around the pipe. Transitioning through these various positions tests the welder’s skill, and it is one reason pipe welding is a highly skilled task. After overhead pipe welding, vertical pipe welding is the second…

High-Purity Pipe Welding: How to Weld High- and Ultra-Purity Piping

By Bio, Pharma, & Medical, Food & Beverage, Pipe Welding, Semi-Conductor No Comments

A high-purity weld is any weld that contains fewer than ten parts per million (ppm) of contaminants like oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Ultra-high-purity welding keeps these contaminants below one ppm. High-purity and ultra-high-purity pipe welding are used in processes where cleanliness of the product is paramount, such as in semiconductor…
