Here are some of the highlights of our on-staff engineering team and their capabilities:
To prevent surface contamination, all of our stainless steel fabrication takes place in segregated bays. We fabricate all grades of stainless, including duplex steels and nickel-based alloys used in chemical, refining, power, and pulp & paper industries. Weld finishes are supplied in passivated condition to ensure cleanliness and protection.This bay is exclusively for work that involves materials like:
At Team’s SSPC-QP3 Certified Coating Facilities we apply leading edge coating technologies for surface preparations and coating applications. Our NACE and SSPC certified staff oversee the finishing operation to pipe spools, vessels, and structural steel located at our home plant in Kaukauna, WI. This all takes place in over 61,000 square feet that house two enclosed blast booths and four coating application booths.
We also have a combination bay where we work on projects that require materials used in the carbon bay or the stainless bay.
Our tank and plate fabrication shop is equipped with rolls, shears, press brakes, plasma cutting, iron workers and seam welders. We’ve rolled tanks from as small as 14" diameter to as large 18’ diameter. These tanks and vessels range from simple storage tanks to complex ASME code vessels.
We fabricate stainless, exotics and carbon steel:
We use 10,000-PSI pneumatic pumps for hydrostatic testing, with 96 high pressure plugs for use in plain end pipe and over 200 flanges in assorted sizes. Our 2,500-gallon water storage tank controls the temperature for hydrostatic testing. Chart recording technology available.
Team has work stations in each area to maximize inspection time. We do 100% inspection of all pipe spools for material, configuration and dimensions:
Note: All Testing Procedures are completed on site.
Our dual-chamber x-ray vault allows a constant stream of spools – while an x-ray is being performed on one side of the vault, the other is being emptied and reloaded, so there’s no downtime. Our vault is capable of handling extra-long spools, up to 75 feet. We load each spool onto a Team-designed wagon – the same wagon it sits on during blasting and painting. This time-saving step makes our process more efficient. Our welders must prove their competency to make x-ray quality welds prior to making any production welds, and must maintain that competency for periods of 6 months or re-qualify in order to continue performing. Radiography interpretations are performed by a third party to ensure accuracy.
In some ways our pipe profiler is much like others: it cuts pipe from 3-48” in diameter, it cuts with plasma and oxyfuel, it conveys pipe from an outside rack right to the machine, it’s controlled by a 5-axis CNC cutting head, and we use computerized touch screens to program cuts. But it differs from others, too, with features that ensure quality and efficiency:
Only Team has an impressive 75,000 square foot indoor receiving warehouse, with more than 7,000 inside rack storage locations and more than 100 cantilever pipe racks. This investment in secure storage away from the effects of weather is key to swift flow of materials from receipt to stage to storage to production. Adding to the efficiency is that our state-of-the-art blasting table can blast fittings right in the material receipt warehouse, minimizing the handling of fittings, elbow and other pieces.
All that you’ve read is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak; only a tour of our facilities would do the list of capabilities justice (and to arrange one, all you have to do is go to our Contact page and make a request!). Team has some of the best practices, people, equipment and technology in the industry, all of which contribute to making Team a leader in both quality and performance.
