Wondering how extrusion can result in better integrity for your pipeline or processing facility?
STREAMLINED INSPECTION PROCESS
Branch tees created using extrusion require no run-to-branch weld, which means no need to perform a radiographic inspection of this component section.
SUPERIOR COMPONENT STRENGTH
Extruded components are oftentimes able to withstand greater external loads when compared to branch weld components, and can also offer greater longevity.
MORE DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
Extruded components offer more flexibility, as a rule, enabling engineers greater freedom to optimize the overall system and component design.
LESS WEIGHT ON THE LINE
Because no external reinforcement pad is required, extruded components have the potential to slash the weight of a component and, at scale, the entire line.
MORE PROJECT CONFIDENCE
Extruded components don’t run the risk of being kicked back in the field because of a failed branch weld inspection, delaying commissioning, and creating other problems.
