Pipe Fabrication

A wye we fabricated in our shop

We could do this kind of work all day, we really enjoy working with pipe.

Pipe fabrication takes a different set of skills than structural fabrication and we thrive in the challenge.

A couple of wyes and a spool

We welded the pipe using a dual shield wire – E71T-1 – one of the easiest wires to use in a shop setting.  It is termed “dual shield” because it uses both a shielding gas and flux which is inside the tubular wire.

Certified Pipe Welding in Sacramento

Dan and I installed this valve assembly Thursday, 2/3/11.

From start to finish we completed it in about 12 total man hours.

We supplied and installed 3 – 6″ flanges, 2 – 90 deg. elbows,  and about 11′ of 6″ pipe.

Dan cut into the existing pipe for the valve assembly and 6″ pipe, then we worked together to fit the pieces in.

Dan completed the project by welding everything up.

Both of us enjoy this type of work and were satisfied with the finished product.
