Stainless Steel Pipe
Dixie-Southern (Duette, FL) has completed fabrication of 650 feet of 84-inch diameter stainless steel pipe for regional utility Tampa Bay Water's Lithia Hydrogen Sulfide Removal Facility. It was designed to eliminate odor and impurities from drinking water by using an ozone injection system. Dixie-Southern helped engineer and design the large-diameter stainless steel pipe ranging from 42 to 84 inches in diameter, and made recommendations pipe fabrication to ensure the highest quality and mechanical integrity, says the company. Dixie-Southern utilized an automated, high deposition submerged arc process to weld all circumferential and longitudinal seams on the pipe, producing a high quality, uniform weld with excellent aesthetic quality and mechanical strength. The pipe was 100 percent X-ray tested with no failures and was passivated with citric acid solution.
