Field Fabrication

The flexibility of Lonestar Automated Welding systems makes them excellent choice for various field fabrication applications. Single Head Automated Welding system has flexibility to perform GMAW, pulsed GMAW, GTAW, FCAW welding processes. They provide a wide range of travel, wire feed, and oscillation parameters to accommodate various materials, thicknesses and joint designs. They can weld narrow gap or factory bevels, as well as heavy wall thicknesses using standard or compound bevels.

Tie In

Road Crossing, River Crossing, Main Line to Auxiliary Line, Main Line to Plant Feed line, Specialty sections of pipe, such as bends, etc. Front end crew will run main pipeline and leave obstructions to be tied in later when ditches are prepped and road/river boring has been completed while not holding up the main line.

Compressor Station

A compressor station is a facility which helps the transportation process of natural gas from one location to another. Natural gas, while being transported through a gas pipeline, needs to be constantly pressurized at intervals of 40 to 100 miles.The LoneStar system has been instrumental in building stations, completing tie ins, as well as running main lines to the stations.

Launchers – Receivers

Pigging in the maintenance of pipelines refers to the practice of using pipeline inspection gauges or ‘pigs’ to perform various operations on a pipeline without stopping the flow of the product in the pipeline. Launchers and Receivers are used to insert and remove the ‘pig’.
