Quality Control

Each specification is critical to the success of your project. The initial stages of your project depend on the quality of the pipe piles supporting it. That's why so many owners, contractors, and service centers depend on the proven strength of Atlas Pipe Piles.

Exceptional Operations
At Atlas Tube, we have the ability to produce 2,400 tons on a two-shift day. In two days we outperform most other spiral weld mill’s monthly production. We manufacture every product to order, producing pipe sizes with standard and non-standard wall thicknesses. Our straight-seam welding process ensures greater product integrity with less weld area over the length of the product than spiral-weld pipe piles, and our strip preparation process creates a sound weld every time. Additionally, no repair work piles are shipped on a prime project. Should a questionable condition arise it is cut out on the mill production line, ensuring exceptional quality every step of the way.

Product Testing
Each facility features a full metal lab for product testing. We provide original mill test reports (MTR) with every order – offered in the Chicago facility for every length of pipe piles, and offered in the Harrow facility with every bundle. Each MTR is backed by coil certificates from our raw material suppliers and reviewed before the coils are shipped to our plants, ensuring the product meets the highest quality specifications requirements. MTR documentation includes complete heat traceability, chemical analysis, and tensile properties. Charpy impact testing is available upon request and cone and flattening testing is done during production. We also provide UT testing and have a test lab on site that does tensile and yield testing as well. At Atlas Tube, we put every order to the test to guarantee quality.

Cone Testing

Cone testing is a method of destructive testing of the weld. A sample of pipe is forced over a cone by a hydraulic press until the test piece fails or end of the test piece is expanded to a predetermined amount without failure of the ERW weld seam. This test verifies the weld integrity as well as the ductility of the weld.
