Industrial piping systems require specialty equipment and a knowledgeable supplier. When transporting a fluid from one part of the factory to another, you not only need the right sizes of pipes to transport the material, you also need the right material of pipes and fittings for your type of liquid or gas.
Your design team may want to establish a relationship with an industrial piping system supplier during the design phase of the project. Here are the steps you need to take to find the right design phase suppler:
- Narrow your selection of suppliers by pipe specs required for your project.
- Make a short list of the suppliers that have the industrial pipes your project needs and contact those companies.
- Base your final design phase supplier by the company's customer service and willingness to provide product samples and meet your special design requirements.
Develop a list of companies that specialize in supplying the pipe machinery the project requires
Many designs require certain diameters of pipe, in either metric or English measurements, while others require certain materials transport the fluids, such as stainless steel piping or copper piping systems. No matter what your specifications, there is a piping supplier for your needs; you just need to find them.
Narrow your list of piping distributors
The next step in finding the right industrial piping suppler is to narrow down your possibilities to a short list of manufacturers or suppliers. You can accomplish this by selecting a facility close to your project location, or by selecting a manufacturer that makes a specialty or custom designed piping products well suited for your intended application.
Get great customer service so your piping project gets off the ground smoothly
A manufacturer or distributor that takes the time and cost to send your design team product samples and spec sheets is worth its weight in gold. The ease of which you can gain access to the sales and customer support and the training that these people have are valuable resources for the design team as well.
