IDMAG Pipeline Demagnetizer being used on a magnetized line in Eastern Texas. Went from almost 600 gauss down to less than 1 gauss!
Customer in Houston, TX was set up and welding within less than 1 hour!
We received an emergency phone call on a Saturday morning from a contractor in New York City. They had already lost hours trying to weld a magnetized pipe, P22 20” diameter with a 3” wall thickness, in a power plant that provides electricity and steam to lower Manhattan. We quickly responded by mobilizing immediately and heading to the customer; within hours we had them ready to weld and they were able to finish the job.
Industrial Degauss handled demagnetizing a 36” pipeline in South Carolina for a repeat customer. They were impressed with how the last job went and were pleased that we delivered on what we said we could do for them.
We met the client from this job all the way out in Calgary, AB; they then called us to do another job for them on a 16” pipe in Eastern NC (shown in the pictures). These pictures show the pipe with all of the shavings/fillings sticking up, clearly indicating the magnetism. Industrial Degauss travels around the world to meet operators and contractors to show them how we can save them time and money on their pipeline projects.
The pipe used in the fab shop was magnetized and the IDMAG Pipeline Demagnetizer was used to demagnetize the pipe ends. A magnetic survey was performed at the beginning with a high measurement of 90 gauss. Within 20 minutes, the equipment was set up and the pipe end was degaussed. The resulting value was reduced to less than 1 gauss and welding was able to proceed.
Industrial Degauss is the leading provider of pipeline demagnetizing equipment and services.
