Field joint coating
Pipeline Induction Heat (PIH) is a specialist field joint coating contractor for the application of a wide range of anti-corrosion, thermal insulation and profile in-fill solutions.
The systems applied include heat shrink sleeves, fusion bonded epoxy, PP and PE flame spray, three-layer spirally wound PP, PU foam infill, injection-moulded polyurethane and injection-moulded polypropylene.
The equipment and services offered by PIH are designed specifically to the project and the customers’ needs, to ensure efficiencies in the installation of the specified field joint coating systems, as part of offshore pipeline construction.
The principles adopted by PIH are to utilize automated equipment and processes, which offer speed and repeatable quality for the application of advanced field joint coating materials to the welded joint area.
Specialist technicians and engineers bring unrivalled experience to the specialist services and will work closely with the contractor to optimize cycle times and efficiencies in the firing-line, either on the lay barge (J-Lay and S-Lay) or at onshore fabrication or spool base locations.
PIH also offers custom coating services for the application of anti-corrosion and thermal insulation systems to fittings, spools and bends.
CRC-Evans offers a range of pipeline equipment, including its high-performance Centurion bending machine, pneumatic wedge mandrel and TruBend™ wireless angle measurement instrument. These components work together to give increased bending speed and productivity over standard systems.
CRC-Evans offers storage racks, roller systems and other pipe handling equipment needed for fabrication, spooling and loading of rigid pipelines before installation.
STANLEY Inspection has grown into a worldwide leader in providing specialist inspection, non-destructive testing and heat treatment services. The services include the latest equipment and technologies available, supported by experienced technicians.
