When welding is being carried out on a pipe, there are a lot of things to keep in mind. Some of these are vitally important, and if done correctly can affect the entirety of the weld.
Pipe welding can be quite complex work that requires a lot of skill, but pipe rotators make that work much easier.
Why do we need pipe rotators?
When performing a weld on a pipe, usually the weld must cover the circumference of the pipe evenly. It’s also important for the weld to be of a high quality and strong, as a lot of pressure could be put on the pipe depending on what the final work is meant for.
When pipe welding is done by hand, the welder must move around the pipe slowly as they carry out the work. Without a pipe rotator, this is difficult and necessary work in order to get the correct weld.
Using a pipe rotator enables the tank/vessel to be turned at desired speeds enabling the welder to carry out the work far easier & more efficiently, giving a higher quality weld to form roll steel tubulars.
