Dedicated weld overlay workstations use single and multi head, and include conventional rotating stations, continuously rotating head stations and specifically designed pipe cladding stations, equipped with the latest advanced control and inspection facilities.
Arc Energy has the capability to clad bores ranging in size from 20mm up to 4m in diameter, weighing up to 15 tonnes. Utmost pride comes from being able to provide the perfect solution to weld the most complex of geometries.
An extensive library of weld procedures and welder qualifications are certified in accordance with international standards including ASME, API, ISO, DNV, Norsok and MIL.
A comprehensive range of 'base metal/weld overlay' combinations are covered, including carbon and low alloy steels, martensitic, austenitic, 22Cr duplex and 25Cr super duplex stainless steels, nickel and copper based alloys.
In 2010, Arc Energy made a major investment in two new Rotating Head welding machines, costing £500,000, increasing productivity and greatly extending the size and scope of manageable work.
