Pipe Bending Services for Petrochemical Industry

The petrochemical and oil and gas industries have a vital societal role, from supplying the natural resources that power homes and vehicles to manufacturing the plastics that makeup household items. The primary way these industries transport materials from one process to the next is casing, piping, and tubing. 

Ensure your petrochemical facility or offshore oil and gas platform can safely and efficiently move liquids, gases, and semisolids around turns and obstacles with high-quality tube bending. We are a premier metal beam, bar, tube, and pipe bending service provider that specializes in common and custom shapes for demanding applications. 

Pipe Bending Importance Explained

Pipes turn at unique angles in petrochemical and oil and gas facilities for a variety of reasons, such as needing process media to exit in one location and return in a new area. Another reason piping takes unique paths is that correctly lining up pipework is challenging. Tubing doesn’t bend easily and is hard to fabricate to precise tolerances, and the following defects can occur from subpar metal bending practices. 

  • Rippling
  • Wrinkling
  • Cracking
  • Flattening
  • Splitting
  • Wall thinning
  • Buckling
  • Galling
  • Scoring
  • Dragging

Using poorly bent metals in your petrochemical or offshore oil and gas application has risks. A defect can cause piping system failure, which results in production downtime, environmental issues, workplace hazards, and lost revenues.

It’s common for petrochemical and oil and gas applications to convey hazardous gases or corrosive liquids using bent casing, piping, and tubing. In these industries, bends need to be precise, and there’s no room for error. 

At Tube-Tec Bending, our equipment and trained personnel produce bends with pinpoint accuracy and the utmost quality. 

We Know Metal

Metal bending is sometimes described as a mysterious process with unavoidable trial and error. If you know what you’re doing, as we at Tube-Tec Bending do, then it’s all science. A successful metal bending process starts with materials from which you work. 

Our team of experts has a thorough understanding of material characteristics and the best methods of bending them effectively. If you already have an application but aren’t sure which material type works best, we can also help you select the right one. While we can bend just about any metal type, here are ones with which we often work. 

Ensure you have the optimal material for your application, thereby minimizing costs and failure chances, with support from Tube-Tec Bending.
