Pipe Spooling & Fabrication | Vancouver Welding Inc.

Pipe Spooling

Onsite or at our welding shop in Maple Ridge, we can complete piping systems based on your project needs.

Every job is completed with the highest quality in the industry. We at Vancouver Welding can provide weld mapping and QC tracking, ensuring every part of the system is completed and logged.

Prefabrication of piping systems that can be installed onsite later. These jobs can be worked on at our shop in Maple Ridge BC or we can travel to you. Our qualified welders, pipe fitters, and laborers will work professionally and safely, completing the job in a timely fashion.

Importance Of Pipe Fabrication and Spooling

Piping systems are manufactured in different shapes and sizes, depending upon the applications. Because of the critical nature of these systems, welding is done by paying the utmost attention to the minor details. It must be of very high quality.

If these welds are not adequately performed, then there can be potential health and safety hazards, including suffocations, fires, poisoning, and explosion hazards.

Welding Processes

Welding is a critical step in the fabrication of welded piping systems. Piping systems can be made from carbon steel, stainless steel and various alloys.

Following types of welding processes are employed in the fabrication of various pipe jobs:

Facility Welding Process | Vancouver Welding Inc.

Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW) & Metal Core Arc Welding (MCAW)

Plasma Welding Icon | Vancouver Welding Inc.Semi Automatic wire feed welding process that can be used for pipe, structural or miscellaneous fabrication.

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) / Stick Welding

Plasma Welding Icon | Vancouver Welding Inc.Often used during field welding, a reliable process used onsite for pipe or structural steel welding.

X-Ray Penstock Welding Inspection | Vancouver Welding Inc.

GTAW/TIG Welding

It is a versatile welding process that is suitable for all welding positions. It uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode.

It produces the highest quality weld and has become a replacement for gas metal arc welding pipe fabrication. TIG welding is mostly used where small welds are needed on stainless steel.

Factors Governing Welding Specification

There are different factors that you should take into account before selecting a particular welding process and welding parameters for a pressure vessel. These factors include:

  • Operating Conditions, i.e. maximum allowable working pressure and design temperature

  • The thickness of the metal plate to be welded
  • The material of the plate to be welded

  • Type of service

Welding Inspection

Since most welding jobs are for highly pressurized pipes and contain hazardous or volatile substances they can be dangerous if not properly welded, the inspection of welds is necessary to ensure the quality of joints.

The following welding inspection technologies are applied to most welds:

X-Ray Inspection | Vancouver Welding Inc.

X-Ray Inspection

Plasma Welding Icon | Vancouver Welding Inc.This type of welding inspection technique can detect welding defects beneath the surface. Used for critical weld joints, to ensure the weld has no defects.

Ultrasonic Inspection

This welding inspection technique can detect surface as well as subsurface welding defects. In this technique, a high-frequency sound wave is detected through the base metal and the welded joint. When a wave hits a discontinuity in a weld joint, part of the wave is reflected back. In this way, a welding defect can be detected.

Both welding inspection technologies have pros and cons that need to be considered based on applicable standards and customer requirements.

Our Core Values

These values serve as the foundation of our business, shaping the way we approach our work, interact with our clients, and contribute to the communities we serve.
