Pipe Fabrication Services for Large and Complex Pipe Systems
The energy industry encompasses all companies involved with the production and sale of energy, and it includes those engaged in the practices of fuel extraction, manufacturing, refining, and distribution. Whether that energy is produced from crude oil, natural gas, electricity generation, or nuclear power, the industry has a fundamental role in satisfying the high energy demands and consumption levels of today’s society.
While consumers are primarily concerned with the end results of these practices, such as heating their homes and fuelling their vehicles, the energy-producing companies have to focus on a variety of apparatuses and systems that are critically important yet likely not appreciated by the general public; one of these essential mechanisms includes the piping systems needed for raw and finished products to flow from one location to another.
In many instances, these piping systems need to be rather substantial in size and quite complex in their design; and this is where companies in the energy industry can benefit from the expert pipe fabrication services offered by Aspire Energy Resources Inc.
Stated succinctly, pipe fabrication is the method/process of manufacturing pre-designed piping systems to suit customer needs in relation to their individual businesses, facilities, and/or industries.
Pipe fabrication consists of two distinct stages, in turn influenced by the specific purpose of the piping system and the particular substance that will pass through it:
- Composition (i.e.: material)
- Size, thickness, and diameter
- Related attachments/components
System Assembly (steps as required)
- Pipe bending
- Sealing of joints
- Chemical treatment
- Blasting and painting
- Inspection and testing
Pipe fabrication permits a considerable amount of customization in terms of the physical design and flow of the eventual pipe system. This degree of versatility essentially means that systems can be created to fit almost any existing structure/facility without the need for remodeling or a full demolition and rebuild.
Similarly, the pipe fabrication process offers an effective option in circumstances where a current piping system requires an upgrade or redesign based on its age or the changing needs of the business.
