North American Field Heat Treating Forecast

IIR's Field Heat Treating Services Forecast is specific to the industrial processing industry and the onsite heat treating services required for piping systems, process equipment and structural steel, vessels and flat plates. This specialized industrial service includes onsite labor and equipment, engineering services, inspection and assessment.

Most of the revenues in this industry are derived from maintenance turnarounds and new construction activity in the petroleum refining industry, chemical/petrochemical plants, pipelines, fossil and nuclear-fired power generation plants, mines and steel mills, pulp & paper mills and industrial manufacturing plants.

Types of Field Heat Treating Services included in this Forecast:
  • Pre-Heat Treatment Electrical controlled, low-voltage, preheating to include electric resistance heating to preheat weld joints, to remove contaminants and moisture prior to welding, minimizes the rate of weld hardening, reduces porosity in welds and hydrogen cracking.
  • Post-weld Heat Treatment (PWHT) to maximize the life of piping systems and process-related equipment in the field. Post-weld Heat Treatment (PWHT) services that involve tempering the metal and reducing tensile stresses, minimizing the risk of brittle fracture, stress and corrosion cracking and metal fatigue. PWTH includes high-velocity Gas Combustion heating of welds and refractory linings for customers to enhance the metallurgical properties of their process piping and equipment. This also includes solution heat treating of welds in portable furnaces.
  • Specialty heat treating processes are performed using gas-fired combustion on large pressure vessels for stress relieving, to bake specialty paint coatings and controlled drying of abrasion and temperature resistant refractory. High-velocity burners are used for curing and drying out moisture from refractory materials.
  • Special high-frequency heating, commonly called induction heating, is used to expand metal parts for assembly or disassembly, expansion of large bolting for industrial turbines and stress relieving projects, which is cost prohibitive for electric resistance or gas-fired combustion.
  • Excluded from the forecast are off-site heat treating services performed in a plant.
