What do we do?
High quality spiral welded pipes.
Spiral welded pipes can be supplied in non-commercial and special diameters, allowing the customer to choose the diameter closest to their needs.
Spiral welded pipe can be supplied in lengths up to 88 ft (26.82 m), allowing the customer to save on field welding costs.
Our spiral welded pipe technology is very versatile, being able to manufacture, in the same pipe mill, diameters from 20” to 120” inches in diameter (50.8 cm to 304 cm), making high quality, large diameter pipes accessible.
Why use spiral welded pipes?
High quality spiral welded pipes offer the customer: structural integrity, precise diameters, tighter tolerances in oval and straightness, among other qualities.
The full penetration of the weld from high quality coiled tubing, added to the angle at which the weld is applied, results in superior structural integrity than longitudinal welded tubing, resulting in excellent pipe performance. pipes, going beyond customer expectations.
Our pipes provide the same or better service than longitudinally welded pipes. The strictest international codes for pipe design allow the use of high quality spiral welded steel pipes for the most demanding operating conditions, assigning it the highest weld joint factor.
Our high quality spiral welded pipes have proven their reliability in many countries including Germany, France, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Mexico and in the United States of America. These pipes are used to transport oil, gas, sour gas, water, minerals, etc. The pipes meet and exceed international standards such as API 5L, ISO 3183, ASTM, AWWA, and ISO 9001, among others, in addition to customer requirements.
Raw Material Inspection: Visual, dimensional, chemical analysis, and mechanical testing inspections are performed to ensure quality.
Uncoiling and leveling: Steel rolls up to 35 tons are leveled to obtain the surface quality of the plate.
Edge cutting: Both edges of the plate are cut to obtain a precise width of the plate.
Edge machining and bending: Edge preparation is to obtain a high-quality weld.
Pipe Forming: Spiral welding produces pipes that are very accurate in dimensions and with tighter tolerances than the requirements of international standards and specifications such as API 5L and ISO 3183.
Welding: The double submerged arc welding (DSAW) process is used for the inside and outside of the tubes.
Pipe cutting: The pipe is manufactured to specific customer dimensions.
Ultrasonic Inspection: Ultrasonic inspection is performed to the weld and to the plate.
Visual Inspection: Visual and dimensional inspections.
Radiographic Inspection: It is carried out according to the international standard API 5L and ISO 3183, or the client’s requirements.
Hydrostatic Test: Each pipe is hydrostatically tested at the specified test pressure.
Coatings: Interior and exterior epoxy coatings for pipe protection.
Shipments: It can be shipped by truck, rail and ship (from the Ports of Tampico, Manzanillo, Lázaro Cárdenas and Veracruz).
