Double Joint & Spoolbase

All pipe handling equipment for joining single pipes into multiple pipe sections is in the Bauhuis product portfolio. Bauhuis knows that in the harsh environment of Double Joint & Spoolbase plants robust and sometimes over dimensioned equipment is required to survive in the long run.

  • Double joints & Quad joints
  • Pipe strings up to 1.200 meter
  • Welding equipment 2G < >5G
  • Bevel machines / Internal line up clamps

Double Joint equipment

Bauhuis supplies complete line-up/pipe welding racks for welding single joints (12 meter) into double joints (24 meter), quad joints (48 meter) and pipe strings (up to 1,200 meter) to  companies operating on-shore Double Joint equipment or spoolbase plants or off-shore pipe-laying vessels. Together with reliable partners Bauhuis can add pipe welding equipment, Internal line-up clamps (ILUC’s), NDT Stations and or X ray tunnels to their scope of supply.

Line-up cars

Especially the design of the line-up cars used in the first station of the Double Joint or spoolbase plant where two pipes are being aligned and the first weld layer is laid is critical for achieving a good plant output. Bauhuis supplies these cars with full hydraulic control systems prepared with very precise proportional valves. Line-up cars with endo rollers (off-shore or spool base application) or pipe rotation units (equipped with servo drives) are offered.

Blasting & coating frames

For blasting and coating the welded end sections of the pipe automated blast and coating frames are provided. For coating purposes induction heating coils, automated blasting frames, FBE powder coating frames and MLPP injection coating stations are installed.

Double Joint & Spoolbase plants

Pipe handling equipment packages for Double Joint or spoolbase plants include fully automated incoming and ready pipe racks, pipe pushers, line-up cars, pipe handling buggies, rotators and endo or double wheel pipe conveyors. Also field joint coating equipment for blast cleaning and coating applications can be added.

Pipe handling equipment

As automated pipe handling is obligatory in most pipe coating plants, Bauhuis offers a wide range of pipe handling equipment. Solid mechanical designs are coupled with sophisticated power & control systems for remote “hands off” movement of pipe through the plant.
