After welding our piping assemblies are individually pressure tested and cleaned inside and out. During cleaning we apply a de-greaser to clean the pipe and a pickling acid on the welds. The pickling acid pulls the carbon out of the weld and brings it to the surface. This works great with Stainless Steel Pipe. Then we scrub the welds to remove the carbon and other impurities. This ensures your weld will not rust in the field and will be nice and shiny for many years to come. Take a look at the pictures and see how they look after pickling.
In most cases piping systems serve as the backbone for multi-million dollar operations. Additionally your piping system has to withstand extreme circumstances from high pressures and temperatures to extremely corrosive environments.
In any event you can’t have just anyone fabricate your piping system. The Aero-Flex team has over 75 years of experience in these types of metal fabrication applications and the specifications required to deliver a piping system that will perform to your expectations.
