Longitudinally Welded and Double SAW

Petrosadid: Longitudinally Welded and Double SAW

Welded pipe (pipe manufactured with a weld) is a tubular product made out of flat plates, known as skelp, that are formed, bent and prepared for welding. The most popular process for large diameter pipe uses a longitudinal seam weld or Longitudinally Submerged Arc Welded Steel pipes (LSAW).

DSAW Pipe is often produced by automatic double-wire double-sided submerged arc welding process. DSAW pipe is simple, high efficiency and low cost. In the steel pipe forming steel plate deformation evenly, the residual stress is small, does not appear to scratch the surface of the phenomenon. The diameter and thickness of the steel pipe size specifications can be used flexibly in the production of large diameter thick seam steel pipe. In the production, welding joint can be pre-heated before welding inside and outside, to ensure that the quality of process is liable.

For transporting large quantities of hydrocarbons over long distances, longitudinal submerged arc welded (LSAW) pipes have been used for decades. When operational conditions require high wall thickness due to high internal or external pressures, LSAW pipes are commonly the most economical solution. Offshore pipelines link platforms at subsea wells with the processing devices onshore. Environmental and population safety aspects trigger high‐quality requirements and appeal to the responsibility of all involved bodies to put all efforts into safe pipeline operation.

Double Submerged Arc Welded (DSAW) steel pipe is available in straight and spiral welded formats and used in a variety of applications. The submerged welding process protects the steel from contamination of impurities in the air. The manufacturing of Double Submerged Arc Welded Pipe involves first forming steel plates into cylindrical shapes. Then the edges of the rolled plate are formed so that V-shaped grooves are formed on the interior and exterior surfaces at the location of the seam. The pipe seam would then be welded by a single pass of an arc welder on the interior and exterior surfaces. The welding arc is submerged under flux.
