That time has finally come that I got a job....It is with a company called Team Industrial Services and it is actually the people my father works for and has for a long time :D :D :D :D :D

I could not be happier...The only bad thing I guess is that i wont get to see you guys as much as I do now..With 40-60 hour work weeks + traveling it is going to be hard but we will make it...

Thanks for all you guys help with everything :thumbsup:

Hey that's awesome news!! That must be some great relief for you and your lovely bride!!

You should celebrate...hmmm, get a 5.0 engine or something...

Well I know and I dont know if that makes any sence...It called heat treating and is when you weld a section of pipe or whatever needed that will be used in the oil, gas, refinery plant and basically heat it up to a certain degree and let it cool down then heat it up again. Something like that...

We will have to see what happens on the Tuesday dinners!!!!

I work with the Team folks here at BP Texas City Refinery. Nice group of people. Maybe I will see you this way?


09-26-2008, 02:12 PM
Thats cool maybe I will see you around..

Advantages of using field heat treating

Weld preheats
Technician sets up a low voltage heater for a vessel-to-pipe preheat
– Reduces the levels of thermal stress
– Compensates for high heat losses
– Minimizes the rate of weld hardening
– Reduces the porosity of the weld
– Reduces hydrogen cracking
– Improves microstructure of heat affected zone
Post weld heat treating
– Relaxes residual stresses
– Relaxes thermal stresses
– Tempers (softens)
– Removes diffusible hydrogen
Refractory dry outs
– Improves refractory strength
– Eliminates refractory separation
– Removes mechanical water
– Minimizes explosive spalling
– Avoids thermal stress
