Critical offshore, subsea, and land-based oil and gas applications require dependable piping connections.
Commonly used welded piping connections come with skilled labor, validation, inspection, and long commissioning times, as well as the workplace hazards associated with welding. Non-welded permanent mechanically attached fittings offer a viable alternative to welded piping systems that greatly reduces the time to commission piping systems through reductions in many of the time-consuming steps required in welding. These non-welded connections can be made in minutes, not the hours that welded piping connections take. When combined with cold bent piping, most, most if not all, of the welds in can be removed.
