International standards and customer specifications are commonly used when specifying dimensional requirements for onshore and offshore projects and often have allowable dimensional tolerances which may prove to be non-optimum, especially when considering welded pipes.
This means that end users and installation contractors may receive pipes which require extra handling, sorting or manipulation during installation all of which results in extra costs.
CPW’s modern manufacturing mills are able to guarantee upon request much tighter dimensional tolerances on key parameters such as out-of-roundness on pipe ends and pipe body, pipe wall thickness, and pipe straightness.
Pipe supplied by CPW can also be supplied with a detailed dimensional report of pipe ends which is generated by a robotic laser measuring system helping facilitate enhanced fit up of pipe ends during fabrication at site.
We are always ready to help optimize dimensional tolerances for specific project requirements when required.
