KLAD Custom Fabricated Clad Pipe, Clad Vessels, Fittings and Systems
KLAD® Manufacturing custom fabricates piping, vessel and heat exchanger components from metallurgically bonded clad plate or weld overlaid. From one piece to complete piping systems, a full range of clad piping and components is available including pressure vessels, heat exchangers and specialty OEM components.
We offer engineered solutions for any application where corrosion is an ongoing problem, including those in the refining, petro-chemical, oil and gas exploration, pulp and paper, and power generating industries. KLAD products are not characterized as a liner. All of the company’s products are metallurgically bonded metals that physically behave as one material.
Manufacture of clad piping components
Internal corrosion does more than just eat away pipe; it also eats away your profits. Continuous maintenance and repair impact your bottom line, while using solid alloy components can be cost prohibitive. Now there’s a better solution. KLAD’s comprehensive and proven line of high quality clad piping components and customized cladding services offers a practical, cost-effective and permanent solution to piping corrosion.
Depending on the size, wall thickness and alloy combinations for each component, KLAD uses the best of several manufacturing techniques to produce its piping product line. These metallurgically bonded components are produced with exacting controls and expertise in forming, welding and heat treatment to assure superior properties of both high alloy cladding and the base material. These diverse manufacturing methods allow us to optimize KLAD product performance using:
- Pipe and fittings made from metallurgically bonded clad plates
- Heavy wall hot-formed clad fittings
- Hot induction bending of pipes to 3D or larger
- Low dilution weld overlay of pipes, fittings, flanges, and valves
Custom piping components
KLAD can produce a wide range of products to meet both large and small orders utilizing the company’s flexible manufacturing facilities. Whether you are installing clad protection for a new project, unit revamp, scheduled maintenance, or as a facility modification, KLAD is the long-term solution.
Pipe and components for upstream oil and gas applications
Clad pipe and piping components can play a central role in a number of refining applications, including:
- Crude, vacuum and coker units
- Lube oil units
- Amine / sour water system
All KLAD pipe and components are can be fully inspected with standard NDE techniques.
Prefabricated piping systems and components
KLAD has a tradition of reliability and is a leader in the manufacture and supply of high quality piping components and prefabricated piping systems to solve corrosion and erosion problems.
Since 1995, KLAD products have earned a reputation for dependability and long-term effectiveness in preventing corrosion. Today KLAD components can be found in refineries, chemical processing plants, oil and gas exploration and production facilities, power plants, and environmental treatment plants worldwide.
