Flowline Alaska’s operations are centrally located in Fairbanks, Alaska allowing for quick receipt and delivery of materials via air, rail, or truck. We have three enclosed fabrication facilities, a satellite facility with offices, approximately 42 acres of land for material handling and staging and are located immediately adjacent to two rail spurs.
MAIN PRODUCTION FACILITY
The main production facility is roughly 46,000 square feet of shop floor space. Approximately half of this facility is dedicated to pipe insulation and FBE coating with the balance dedicated to pipe spool fabrication and bend/fitting blast cleaning and corrosion coating application.
The main plant is equipped with both mobile and fixed production equipment that is designed to support the unique automated processes of Flowline’s polyurethane insulation or FBE coating application systems.
The fabrication area of the facility has the ability to support 8 welding stations, equipped with rotating positioners and a state-of-the-art welding fume extraction system.
The hand applied coating booth, hand blast booth and pipe fitting pre-heating ovens are centrally located within our facility to support either the insulation/FBE coating or fabrication production processes.
DOUBLE JOINT FACILITY
Flowline operates an 11,000 square foot dedicated double joint facility. This building is heated and supported by hydraulically operated pipe alignment and turning equipment. Plant layout has been optimized so final stationing of the pipe allows for inspection and NDE examination of welds prior to the pipe exiting the double joint production building.
BEND INSULATION PRODUCTION FACILITY
This 5,000 square foot facility sits immediately adjacent to the main engineering, management offices and laboratory. Specially designed fixtures allow for the insulation of induction bends (3D, 5D and 20D). After bends are insulated they are transported a short distance across the yard to the main production facility fabrication area for cross country spool welding.
SATELLITE FACILITY & OFFICES
Flowline has a 3,500 square foot fabrication building that is supported by an exterior 50’ x 150’ heated concrete slab and 1,000 square foot office space. This satellite complex is used for larger structural/mechanical fabrication projects and allows owner representatives and inspection personnel temporary project office space that includes both phone and internet accommodations.
Flowline has a fully outfitted quality control laboratory that supports our comprehensive quality assurance program. Two full-time personnel monitor all aspects of FBE and liquid coatings as well as the application of our urethane insulation system. All details of the application of insulation and coatings as well as the inspections are documented according to our Quality Assurance manuals.
Flowline maintains 42 acres of land that is leased from the Alaska Railroad in the Railroad Industrial Area. We are uniquely located near downtown Fairbanks, within one road mile of the Johansen Expressway. Our location provides easy access to the statewide highway system as well as 1,500 lineal feet of rail spurs to facilitate the receipt and shipment of materials. Our real estate footprint also allows us to provide centrally located staging and storage for our clients.
