TIG welding advancements in oil & gas industry

14 February 2017

Polysoude, which has multiple locations throughout the Americas, has recently attempted to combat difficult tungsten insert gas welding (TIG) by producing customer-focused solutions for both mechanised and automated TIG welding. The flow lines and export lines used to transport crude or processed oil or gas fluids are subject to tremendously adverse forces, both externally and internally.

Polysoude claims that they can now weld pipelines that are capable of withstanding severe mechanical stress, absorbing high dynamic loads and providing corrosion resistance. Polysoude’s mechanised or automated TIG welding aims to ensure that the procedure and all related parameters are optimised and approved separately in advance. Results are finally documented as welding instructions and the related programs are implemented into the machines in the workshop or on site.
