Pipe Technology

Westcon Pipe Technology – With modern technology Westcon can offer certified prefabrication of pipes spools based on cold bending.

Dimensional range coldbending  Major investments in unique fullelectric bending technology makes it possible to use coldbending as part of certified prefabrication. The unique bending technology is dimensioned area ¾ “– 10″ (Max OD = 273mm) Bending equal to 1.5 x diamater or greater. For pipes less than ¾ “, and greater than 10“, we prefabricate spools in the traditional way.


Range of Materials  Our cold bending technology is applicable for most materials. Most relevant; A106Gr-B, API5L-X52, 316L and CuNi.

Complete pre-fabrication line – In addition to computerized pre-calculation of gross measurements, fully automated pipe cutting technology and certified cold bending, the complete pre-fab line includes certified mounting/welding, certified surface treatment (cleaning, blasting, painting) and certified pressure testing. All subject to customer´s needs and requirements.

Certified Cold Bending – huge advantages for our customers.

Improved over-all quality  Westcon´s unique cold bending technology is all-electric. All forces used in the process are micro-managed and totally controlled for optimal processing. Bending processes can be repeated for identical end products. Fully automated cutting system secure unique level of accuracy on completed items.

Reduced cost  Efficient cold bending in pre-fab process – less man hours needed. Increase accuracy in pre-fabrication – more efficient mounting.

Reduced mechanical risk  Reduced numbers of welds – less corrosion points – less cavitation points.

Documentation  Over-all Process Certificate reduces and simplify the documentation

Response time  Our own extensive pipe storage gives immediate access the most relevant materials and sizes. Efficient change of tools allows immediate response to immediate needs.

Flexible production in-put  Received specs and production data might be furnished in most forms. Our system handles both manual and electronical input.
