19 Hours Faster Than the Competition

One of our customers was trying to heat 42” diameter pipe using pear burners so that welders could weld out the joints. Our team saw an opportunity to create a solution that would help our customer get the job done much more quickly. To make this in-the-field heating job go faster, we put together a package including a Miller ProHeat 35 induction heating system, a 60kVA generator and a DP25 power distribution panel.

With this setup we were able to get the pipe up to 250 degrees in about 5 minutes. Our customer was able to beat the competition’s target time by over 19 hours and has been asked to quote on other pipeline work for their client. Needless to say they were pleased with the solution and the opportunity for extra work it created.

This portable induction turnkey package is a great way to heat pipes in remote locations. There is less risk to the welders from the hot pipe and the process is much, much faster.

Are you unsure whether to buy your own equipment or to enter into a welding equipment rental arrangement?

Renting your welding equipment may well be the better option for your business.

There are many advantages to renting. We outlined a few of the them below.

Renting Your Welding Equipment Will Save You Money

The first thing you should take note of is that a welding equipment rental arrangement will save you a great deal of time, energy, and money.

If your budget is tight, you don’t really want to have to lay out a large percentage on equipment capital costs than necessary. 

Reduce capital costs by renting your welding fleet

It may be more convenient for you to rent your equipment on an “as needed” basis until such time as you are sure you have enough work orders to justify investing in your own. This will help you maintain a comfortable cushion of profits until the time comes when you are ready to take your business to the next level.
