Qualiy Pipe Welds are Critical Componants of Industrial Process

The pipe welder works as a team member of the pipe installation crew. After the pipe assembly is set in place the pipe welder makes the permanent weld using the appropriate procedure, equipment and material. Pipe welders and pipe fitters work at construction and maintenance of industries including oil and gas, electrical power, chemical, food precess and utilities. Pipe welders must be able to work in tight places under a wide range of adverse conditions where the quality of their work is critical. They must have a good knowledge of shop math, geometry, metal properties, and welding techniques. Pipe welders may be certified by various organizations for different positions but they are often required to pass a per-employment welding test.
