Big step towards HP done!

In CW50-2010 efforts to continuous improvement and development of IMR’s welding technology culminated after several processes checks and reference annealing now in the successful and timely completion of the first “P92” weld in manual TIG/E process within the new coal fired power plant Wilhelmshaven for Electrabel Gas de France Suez with the dimensions of outer diameter 570 x wall thickness 75 [mm ]. Figure 1 shows one of our HD-welder at important measuring of the pipes inner misalignment.

After a well deserved Christmas break of our HD pipeline welders was in KW02-2011 now run the second weld of excellent quality. Figure 2 gives an impression of the welding task.

The ultrasound examinations in CW01-2011 of the first and in CW03-2011 of the second weld confirmed the standard conform welding of the welds under the supervision of our customers from Duisburg and of the Notified Body TUEV Rheinland. The UT Inspector our business partner Pockrandt, Oberhausen can be seen in Figure 3 during its audit work.
