DAYTON, Texas -- Global Tubing's new manufacturing and service complex in Dayton, Texas has begun producing coiled tubing. The company manufactures coiled tubing ranging from 3/4 to 5 in. (1.9 to 12.7 cm) OD, with wall thicknesses ranging from 0.080 to 0.337 in.
The company also provides testing, repair, and other services to users of coiled tubing.
Global Tubing's five-building campus includes a corporate headquarters, two mill operations buildings with laboratory facilities, and two service operations and training facilities. An onsite electrical substation provides clean, uninterruptible power direct from the primary transmission lines.
The company employs a patent-pending friction stir welding process to join strip ends. Benefits of this technology include improved fatigue life, better joint reliability, and less susceptibility to galvanic corrosion, the company says.
The company's service capabilities include complete spooling, inspection, internal/external cleaning, corrosion protection, repair, welding, nitrogen purge, hydrotesting, installation of fittings/accessories, and wireline installation.
"Our commitment to delivering advanced coil tubing technology and unmatched customer service is readily apparent throughout our new facility," says C. Robert Bunch, Global Tubing's chairman and CEO.
"We have assembled some of the best, most experienced people in the industry with the resources and technology needed to create products of the highest possible quality and customer value second to none."
