The quality of your project depends on the quality of the pipe piles supporting it. That’s why so many owners, contractors and service centers depend on the proven strength of pipe piling products from Atlas Pipe Piles.
We manufacture every product to order, producing pipe sizes with standard and non-standard wall thicknesses. Our straight-seam ERW process ensures greater product integrity with less weld area over the length of the product than spiral-weld pipe piles, and our strip preparation process creates a sound weld every time. Additionally, we do not ship repair- work piles on prime projects. If questionable conditions arise during production, we remove the section to ensure exceptional quality every step of the way.Read about our manufacturing excellence
Each facility features a full metal lab for product testing to guarantee quality. We perform tensile and yield testing, as well as a range of in-line tests to verify weld and steel integrity and ductility. Charpy impact testing is available upon request.
This method of destructive weld testing occurs during production to verify the weld’s integrity and ductility. During cone testing, a hydraulic press forces a pipe sample over a cone until either the test piece fails or the end expands to a predetermined size without weld failure.
This destructive test also occurs during production to verify the integrity of the weld and the ductility of the parent metal. During flatness testing, a pipe sample is flattened with the weld at the vertical and horizontal axes (0° and 90° from the direction of force).
This non-destructive testing (NDT) method checks weld integrity during manufacturing. UT can detect the presence of internal flaws by transmitting high-frequency ultrasonic sound waves through the tubing and evaluating characteristics of the returning sound. The discovery of a defect triggers an automatic marking system that indicates the location of the problem. The defective piece is then cut out and rejected at the end of the mill.
