Pipe Spacing Wedges

Pipe spool fabrication and pipeline construction generally requires the use of multiple sections of pipe and fittings. It is common in the industry to join metallic steel and steel alloy pipe by welding. When fitting pipe, great care must be taken to ensure that the hi-lo is acceptable within the site specific weld procedure.

Common methods of ensuring proper gap between sections of pipe include the using a wedge, a gap rod, or a spacing ring. These devices are either placed between the pipe sections as they are brought together or they may be hammered or driven into a smaller gap to open the gap to a wider desired width. Generally, a wedge is used in combination with a gap rod that has a specific thickness.
