Pipework and general equipment fabrication
Tulway’s capabilities involve a full design service for process pipework fabrication projects. From orbital welding of high purity piping for pharmaceutical industries, to heavy wall chrome molybdenum PWHT pipework, Tulway is proud to offer both welding and fabrications services.
With access to a worldwide supplier network, our in-house ability allows us to fabricate various types of pipework, from all grades of stainless steel (including thin wall stainless steel to XXS schedule tubes), carbon steel, exotics, and plastics.
Our extensive portfolio of completed works includes a wide range of stainless steel installations, vessels and prefabricated pipework, from CHP plants through to pre-fabricated skid projects, completing orders using the most common grade of st/st for the process and marine industries, including 304 & 316L, 6Mo stainless steel, duplex and super duplex.
We can design and build bespoke vessels, along with high-pressure piping using fully traceable material supplied with relevant material certifications.
Depending on the nature of the project, fabrications can also be offered with specialist linings, such as PTFE for added corrosion resistance. All pressure testing facilities are available up to 10,000 P.S.I, complete with fully calibrated equipment, and all types of NDT are carried out by UKAS approved suppliers. Testing to these pressures can be carried out using water, inert gases or compressed air. Third-party witnessing can also be arranged if required.
Exotic alloy fabrication
We have access to a worldwide supplier network, built up over many years. Our portfolio of completed projects includes fabrications from Titanium, Hastelloy, Nickel, Cunifer and Super Duplex.
Tulway also offers the supply & installation of PTFE lined pipework, along with all plastics, including polypropylene, HDPE & PVDF.

BS EN 1090
Execution Class 3
Full fabrication and assembly of structural steelwork and components is available at both sites in Liverpool and Middlesbrough to Execution Class II and Class III.
BS EN 1090 is a strict set of harmonised European standards regulating both the fabrication and assembly of stainless and steel structures.
Since July 2014, products within the scope of this standard must be CE marked when released to market, therefore the production of constructional steel or aluminium requires a CE / UKCA mark to be sold or supplied within the current market.
