Built to Contain Excessive Gas Expansion
Globe offers oil and gas fabrication services including the fabrication of custom piping systems and vessels for the upstream and downstream processing segments. This carbon steel slug catcher was manufactured for a customer in the natural gas industry. The large 60′ slug catcher is 60″ in diameter with a 1-5/8″ wall thickness. It is used to buffer the gas liquid stream in the pipeline when excessive gas expansion occurs. The vessel was welded using sub arc and flux core welding techniques in accordance with all ASME and API 1104 pipeline welding specifications. All fabrication and welding was performed with dimensional tolerances of ±1/16″.
Built, Tested, & Inspected All Within 45 Days
The slug catcher was treated with a post weld heat treatment and primer. It was then painted with a corrosion resistant epoxy coating. All seams and joints were visually inspected and welds were verified with radiographic inspection. The finished slug catcher was hydrostatic tested to customer specifications. This entire project was completed in 45 days. We understand that customers encounter rush situations and we can often meet tight timelines on custom projects.
