Welding Consumables for LNG & LPG

LNG & LPG

(more details)

With our brands Böhler Welding and UTP Maintenance we also offer welding consumables for the construction of LNG, LEG, LPG production equipment, regasification equipment, transportation and storage units.

Welding consumables play an important role in the construction of an LNG project. High quality products are major factors that contribute to the safety and cost efficiency of the building of an LNG- plant; materials and structures must meet the most stringent specifications. A variety of materials are used for LNG plants, such as carbon steels, stainless steel, 3.5% to 9% Ni steels and aluminum. Nickel base and austenitic welding consumables are used in cryogenic applications in order to comply with the high ductility and strength requirements at low temperatures. voestalpine Böhler Welding offers a complete portfolio of specialized products available for the main welding processes SMAW, SAW, GMAW and FCAW, with the required qualifications, certifications and documentation which meet the demands from the industry.

 

voestalpine Böhler Welding offers consumables for a wide range of cryogenic applications for the welding of:

  • LNG, LPG production units: liquefaction trains (Chillers, heat exchangers, filters, valves, compressors…), LNG pipelines and storage tanks (stainless steel, 9%Ni steel, aluminium)
  • Regasification trains
  • Cryogenic gas transport: LEG-, LPG- and LNG-carriers, tanker trucks and rail tank cars

Onshore Pipelines

Oil & Gas Midstream
