TIG welding in the Oil & Gas industry

Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), commonly known as tungsten inert gas welding (TIG), has always been considered to be a particularly complicated joining process. Now, after decades of development and progress, Polysoude has recently mastered this aspect of the market and with technological dexterity is producing innovative, customer-focused solutions for both mechanised and automated TIG welding.

The field of offshore applications can be particularly problematic. The flow lines and export lines used to transport crude or processed oil or gas fluids, are subject to tremendously adverse forces, both external and internal. Polysoude can now weld pipelines that are capable of withstanding severe mechanical stress, absorbing high dynamic loads and providing corrosion resistance.

Using mechanised or automated TIG welding equipment, any desired quantity of welds can be produced, with each individual joint exceeding the requirements of the strictest production objectives – the ‘Zero Risk/Zero Defects’ approach.

Polysoude’s mechanised or automated TIG welding ensures that the procedure and all related parameters are optimised and approved separately in advance. Results are finally documented as welding instructions and the related programs are implemented into the machines in the workshop or on site.
