Tig Stainless Ltd specialise in high-quality, full-penetration, butt welds on stainless-steel.
We also weld aluminium and mild steel, manufacture pipework, make tube tees and everything required to plan, plot, install and maintain your factory or process line.
Tig Stainless Ltd specialise in high-quality, full-penetration, butt welds on stainless-steel tube, and high pressure ASME IX welding on stainless-steel schedule pipe. Our investment in oxygen meters—to monitor the atmosphere inside the purged pipe prior to welding—ensures quality and repeatability.
We are coded TIG—Tungsten Inert Gas welders—and hold BS EN 287, ASME IX and AS/NZS 2980:2007 welding qualifications in mild steel and stainless steel. We can weld not only stainless steel, but also titanium, aluminium and mild steel.
By pairing the latest Leica laser-aligning technology with a solid understanding of trigonometry we can plot out your factory or process line with precision, and as planned.
Tig Stainless Ltd specialises in offering project-surveying /management services using our highly-accurate survey equipment. We can mark all the grid locations from your CAD drawing onto the real-life building structure enabling tradespersons to work from correct datum points. This is especially valuable on new builds when a lot of premade process plant arrives from off-site locations.
We offer tube and pipe cutting services, and can accurately cut tube or pipe perfectly square from 12.7mm (1/2”) through to 152.4mm (6”)
We measure and manufacture our pipework in a planned and strategic way, so that, where possible, detailed grid location, and coordinate measurements are taken on site. Away from any process areas, the pipe run is calculated, assembled, purged of oxygen using argon and then fitted. After TIG welding, pipes are cleaned, and brought back to fit perfectly in place. This faster, more efficient process reduces traffic through factory redlines, ensures good forward planning and precision, and almost eliminates welding and cutting equipment in your process area. We hold AS/NZS 2980:2007 qualifications for fusion welding of steels.
We have partnered with a trusted laser-cutting firm so that any specialist components required are just a few clicks away, and arrive in our workshop ready for further working and welding. This economical arrangement translates to lower cost to our customers, and is in tune with our lean manufacturing philosophy. Our laser-cut components offer extremely competitive pricing.
Tig Stainless Ltd has invested in clever tooling and hydraulic equipment which means we can make our own tube tees. This reduces the potential cost of two welds in some situations, and the ability to put tube tees into the side of a tube bend. We can also make pulled manifolds to suit your requirements.
Often signs in harsh environments do not last. Tig Stainless Ltd can make sure that your important signage for critical-hygiene areas like waste chutes, tank numbers, and milk-filling machines (to name a few) have an extremely clear and permanent sign-writing solution. By using ceramic laser-etch (black) process signs which are then welded on to an item of machinery, potential for bacterial growth is reduced if not eliminated. Using this technology, we have made visual indicators for process machinery that has regular operator tool changes—like milk-filling machines—ensuring that machine set-up results are repeatable. Our specialist knowledge in this niche market means we are highly tuned into requirements in critical-hygiene areas.
Precise and manufactured from stainless steel is Tig Stainless Ltd’s specialty. Our experience in this field will guarantee that you are getting the top-quality product you require. We can produce specialist, one-off lab equipment to your requirements, welding extremely detailed and intricate pipe work down to an internal diameter of three millimetres. We understand the high-risk nature and high-quality needs in critical-hygiene areas so we can install pipe work in environments where pathogen control and a clean-air environment are essential.
As qualified sheet-metal workers, we can beautifully clad ducts and pipework—if required—ensuring environmental energy saving policies are met, and to insulate to maintain temperature. Whether it is glycol, steam, hot water or chilled water lines, we ensure thermal insulation barriers are suitable to manage condensation, ensuring hygiene standards are met.
We are experienced at building stainless-steel tanks and vessels—having built literally hundreds of milk tanks and wine vats over the years. Attention to detail to maintain the high standards required in product contact services means that we meet and exceed industry standards. We know how to polish weld seam finishes and how to use NDT—non destructive testing—to ensure that tanks and vessels are internally hygienic to the highest standard possible.
We have completed many handrails, polished gates and unique, artistically-designed pieces. Our customers have the benefit of receiving our specialist skills in the difficult job of polishing the stainless-steel to a high standard of finish. We are up for the challenge of taking on whatever marvellous design your architect may have dreamed up. Bespoke work requiring experience and precision is our strength.
Aside from fixing broken brackets and pinholes in pipes or accidental damage to machinery, Tig Stainless Ltd makes adjustments to bring plant and machinery up to health and safety standard after food-hygiene audits. Our NDT—Non-destructive testing—methods allow us to assess damage properly and make an informed decision about how to repair it. Routine maintenance on cracked pipes or brackets are best left to professionals like Tig Stainless Ltd before well intentioned unskilled repairs cause further damage—these are things that happen and there isn’t much we haven’t seen or fixed before.
