← Fabrication / Piping Spool Fabrication
The prefabrication of piping spools is a long standing and more traditional method of fabrication which can be traced back several decades. Piping spools can range from the simple concept of welding fittings on the end of a length of pipe to complex configurations such as valve gangs and system headers. Additionally, pipe spooling can be utilized with any method of joining as well as any material. Historically, the more common applications have been in industry sectors using large volumes of welded pipe. Whether the job specifications call for x-ray quality heavy wall alloys in a power plant application or the cleanliness and precision required in high purity piping for the food, pharmaceutical, and technology sectors, prefabrication of piping spools offer end users better control of the entire process. The United Association has been fulfilling these needs for over six decades and has the only apprenticeship program in the industry designed specifically for pipe fabrication.
