Services | Induction Bending
Indutech Canada LP offers the most complete range
of pipe bending services available in Canada from a single
source located in Calgary, Alberta.
Our INDUTECH bending service
offers customers the induction bending of carbon, stainless
and alloy steel pipes up to 36" (914 mm) in diameter,
thicknesses to 4" (102 mm) and angles to 180°.
bending can be employed to manufacture a wide range of pipe
sizes and bend configurations.
INDUTECH will be pleased to quote for induction
bending work and to explain further
the other Indutech services and products.
INDUTECH induction bending enables
pipe to be bent to large nonstandard
radii economically and to high quality standards.
bending can produce multiple bends or combined bend-straight segments
out of a single length of pipe (see Figure 2).
This affords reduction of fabrication effort and in particular
of welding and associated NDT requirements.
Reduction in fabrication and welding offers
significant quality assurance advantages over the use of
The consistency and predictability
of ovality and thinning inherent in the INDUTECH induction bending process
(see Figure 1a and 1b)
contributes to the total system quality and reliability. This has favoured
its use in critical applications and with high value materials.
Precise time and
temperature controls during induction heating and cooling ensure that the
pipe's physical properties are maintained or improved.
induction bending is carried out to high standards of quality
up by the resources
of Indutech Canada LP technical and quality control departments.
