At WES, our Business Excellence model drives us to continually seek innovation, improve our performance and increase our capability.

We are now using a high-tech automated fusion welding machine to make butted pipe joints.  Believed to be the first machine of its type in commercial use in Europe, the computer-controlled machine accurately machines both pipe faces, follows a pre-determined infra-red heating cycle (auto-compensated for ambient temperature) and then forms the joint under controlled pressure for the correct time.

The outcome? Repeatable, high quality, high integrity joints for both single and dual contained pipe. We are using the system both for factory-built dosing systems and also to pre-manufacture sections of site pipework – minimising time, risk and costs at site.

All part of the WES know-how!
