Gregory Thomas Quickel will present “ERW Pipe: History, Metallurgy and Integrity Management Issues” as a webinar on October 25, 2022


If your pipeline system includes significant mileage of ERW pipe or you have any role in the procurement, inspection and/or integrity management of ERW pipe this is the webinar you need.  The covered topics will include the following:

  • How is ERW made? Historical and modern processes
  • Identifying ERW in the field (seamless v. ERW, finding the fusion line, unique visible features)
  • Measuring the properties of ERW seams in the lab (destructively) and in the field (nondestructively). Evaluating MTRs for ERW.
  • ERW manufacturing flaws; How to find them and assessing the significance of detected flaws.  Historical safety performance of ERW.
  • Repair options for ERW seams
  • Comparing manufacturing standards applicable to ERW (API PSL 1, and PSL 2, ASTM)
  • What the federal pipeline safety regs say specifically about ERW
  • Reports and other resources for understanding ERW pipe integrity issues and typical ERW properties
