Tolerance requirements are key to pressure piping fabrication

Robinson Inc. pressure piping fabricationRobinson integrates pressure piping with new or existing systems

Pressure piping fabrication is a specialty that requires adherence to exceptionally tight tolerances to ensure safety as well as functionality. Robinson, a leader among pressure vessel fabricators, has the manufacturing experience and quality control systems in place to safely bring your systems online.

Fabrication involving steam, heat transfer and pressurized fluids requires a highly skilled team capable of meeting the most stringent of ASME requirements. Alignment of pipe manifolds, spools, or headers in the field or in modular systems is critical to project success. Meeting tolerance expectations can be the difference between a project being on time and on budget versus delayed with cost overruns.

Bolt hole alignment, profile alignment and other criteria are key to achieving timely product assemblies. Some connection points require fine machining, allowing them to mate with adjoining flat surfaces. Robinson’s machining center provides additional value services in bringing all aspects of pressure piping fabrication expertise under one roof.
