Industrial Pipework Services

Its fair to say that when looking for industrial pipework services in the UK you will be faced with a bewildering choice. However depending on the installation project in which you are involved will tend to focus your choice. Many pipework companies offer a full range of pipework materials to choose from and your selection will depend on the process fluid that you are pumping through it. Its no use for example using plastic pipework for oil related fluids as the hydro-carbons will eventually make the pipework brittle. Any vibration at this stage and the pipework is likely leak from the solvent welded joints.

For this application steel tubing is best and advances in pipe technology over the years has had quite an impact on the pipe fitting industry. Gone are the days when steel pipework had to be either welded or screwed at each joint. Specialist piping systems such as ‘Mapress’ now use a crimped joint using rubber seals which negates the need for any hot work permits for welding and is far quicker to erect than screwing each pipe joint separately. For the ultimate in long life this system is also available in stainless steel which is virtually impervious to just about any type of process fluid. Pipework fabrication is fast and simple provided you have the right equipment, which is expensive, so only an installer experienced in this type of pipe fitting is likely to have the tools to complete the job.
