Prefabrication is a process where pipes are pre-designed,fabricated cleaned, painted at the Tube-Mac® (TMI) Factory and shipped to the installation site. These pipes are shipped with special shipping plates and Special Anti Corrosive strips (as shown below).
The Special Anti Corrosion Strips (ZERUST®) combat corrosion by diffusing vapour corrosion inhibitors inside the pipe. Hence the pipe remains corrosion free during shipping and storage at site for installation at a later date.
Some of the advantages of Tube-Mac® pre-fabricated piping are shown below:
The pre-fabricated piping is designed by Tube-Mac®'s most experience Design Engineers. This results in thes best possible solution (pipe routing, valve positions) that the customer can possibly implement in the project. Further, the customer gets a full-fledged documentation package which includes - Pipe Arrangement Drawing, BOM, Information Package, Test Reports with every Pre-Fabricated Project.
Pre-fabricated piping is extremely clean. Since, it goes through a round of flushing at the factory before being shipped, these pipes offer a superior standard of cleanliness and drastically reduce flushing time.
Better Project Control
Project Management becomes simpler as the pipes are pre-designed and materials planned at the factory. There is no issues of project haults due to common factors like - material wastage, wrong procurement, material shortage, quality issues. Pre-fabricated piping is designed and the materials checked by Tube-Mac®'s Design and Engineering Team. The pipes are shipped by the date specified by Tube-Mac® and hence the pipes have to only be assembled at site saving a lot of uncertainities that come with site fabrication.
Pipes are fabricated comparitively quicker at the factory and once it comes at site it needs only assembly. Further, Flushing time is drastically reduced as the pipes are flushed at the factory.Hence, flushing is generally done at site to clean the system oil rather than to clean the pre-fabricated pipes. Hence, overall there is a huge time saving for the customer.
With Tube-Mac®'s years of experience and strong relationship with a wide gamut of raw material manufacturers, high quality materials are sourced at the best possible rates. This translates to increased value that the customer receives for the price they pay.
As the piping is done in the factory, it is manufactured with quality materials using cutting-edge equipment and done by skilled personnel. This results in a piping system having tight tolerances providing greater reliability.
