Pipe Fabrication

Kilgore operates a state-of-the-art, 50,000-square-foot, completely enclosed pipe fabrication facility with a separate 2,500-square-foot Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) building.


The fabrication shop consists of three large bays (alloy, large carbon and small carbon) each equipped with two five-ton bridge cranes, one ten-ton bridge crane and seven strategically placed half-ton jib cranes. The alloy and carbon shops each have a separate ventilation system preventing cross contamination of materials. All bays are wired electrically to accommodate 14 independent welding units.
