Magnetized pipeline in Pennsylvania power plant

  A 20″ diameter, Schedule 140 steam line header was severely magnetized, hitting around 140 to 170 on the gaussmeter.   The magnetism was causing arc blow and the inability to weld.   The IDMAG System was used to demagnetize the pipe and allow welding to proceed without delay. :end  

Steam Line Degauss in Iowa

Magnetized pipe was known to exist from prior outages.  The customer requested the equipment prior to the start of the project consisting of 10″ and 18″ diameter steam lines.   The IDMAG pipeline demagnetizer was sent to the site to remove the magnetism. “Got the equipment.  Wrapped the valve, and it worked!”
