Pipe Heat Treatment Services

weld heat treatment

Pipe heat treatment services involve the careful and controlled heating and cooling of metals with the intention of altering their physical and mechanical properties WITHOUT also changing the shape of the product. This can help dramatically increase the strength of the material and can help clients unlock certain manufacturability objectives like a deeply improved machining process, superior formability, a restoration of ductility and more.

The ATS Methodology

In order to provide the deepest level of both customer service and value to our clients, all ATS pipe heat treatment services are carried out using equipment that utilizes 480 volt three phase power to supply six circuits of 85 volts that then power state-of-the-art electric resistance heating pads. Because the range of capable heating is so high, this allows us to perform both accurate and efficient treatments to only the highest level of Quality Assurance Procedures and Standards.

ATS' technicians, many of whom hold multiple accreditations and certifications, also utilize NIST-traceable recorders and thermocouples for accurate documentation at all times.

The Benefits of Pipe Heat Treatment Services

The ultimate goal of all ATS pipe heat treatment services is to reduce the cooling rate of both the base metal and the deposited weld metal. As a result, this allows our valued customers to achieve the benefits of less downtime (as the components themselves are always ready to weld), increased welder productivity and faster turnaround times. Pipe heat treatment services also eliminates certain manual preheat issues that are common across industries like "rosebuds," eliminates any and all open flames (which commonly cause major safety issues) and more.

Pipe heat treatment services performed post weld also help to not only maximize the life of process equipment, but also reduce tensile stresses, minimize the risk of fracture, corrosion, cracking, metal fatigue and more.

Presently, our pipe heat treatment services are utilized by clients in a wide range of industries including:

  • Utilities (Power)
  • Code Shoppes
  • Pulp and Paper
  • Pipe Fabricators
  • Tank Fabricators and More
