A blowout-preventer (special valve or device used for preventing blowouts on oil and gas wells) which had been stuck together for 9 years is finally separated with the quick application of a Miller induction heating system from Red-D-Arc.

In addition to the many welding heat treatment applications, our heating specialists have years of experience applying this technology in numerous applications from hydro dam maintenance to heavy equipment repair. Contact a specialist to find out how induction heating can be applied to your next challenge.

Thanks to Michael Hernandez AWS CWSR from our Houston location for providing the footage.
