NobelClad explosion-welded plates are certified

NobelClad has received a key industry certification for its explosion-welded metal plates for use in longitudinally welded clad pipe. The designation was awarded last month by DNV GL, a recognized international certification body and classification society that helps establish rules and standards across various industries. The certification qualifies NobelClad’s explosion-welded clad plates under all DNV-OS-F101 2013 requirements. The certification will be incorporated within the upcoming revision of the Offshore Standard for Submarine Pipeline Systems.

The qualification of NobelClad’s plates enables engineers of offshore pipelines to incorporate technology and materials superior to roll-bond plates.

NobelClad’s plates are used to manufacture a broad spectrum of industrial processing equipment, including longitudinally clad-line pipe for the oil and gas production and processing industry. Clad pipe is used for flow lines, risers, jumpers, slug catchers and other applications between wells and production facilities. Hydrocarbons often contain highly corrosive constituents that necessitate alloy pipes for transfer and processing applications. Clad metal offers an economical solution to solid alloy. With the DNV GL certification, customers are assured NobelClad’s plates will meet the highly demanding requirements for offshore pipeline systems.
