Roscoe Moss Company utilizes pipe manufacturing technology that begins by fabricating a spiral seam tube. The spiral process offers special advantages. Pipe manufactured by this method is uniform and accurate in wall thickness. Spiral pipe is characterized as having excellent dimensional accuracy related to roundness and straightness. Also the greater strength of submerged arc welded seams adds to the stability of the pipe. This results from the reinforcement of the weld, and the fact that hoop stresses in a spiral seam tube are less than those in straight seam tube due to the "bandage effect" and distributed forces. All these factors provide advantages not only during well construction and installation, High-capacity spiral pipe manufacturing equipment but also to withstand the rigors of routine well maintenance and future rehabilitation.
High-capacity spiral pipe manufacturing equipment. Accurate control and forming of steel from coil to finished pipe is a continuous process. Spiral weld pipe is noted for its roundness, straightness and dimensional accuracy.
Diameters range from 6" through 63" and wall thickness from 0.104" through 0.500". Products are produced from carbon, copper-bearing, corrosion resistant high-strength low-alloy and several grades of stainless steel. Our tubular products are manufactured in accordance with ASTM and AWWA specifications from only prime quality raw materials. Certified test reports for material and manufacture are available.
Roscoe Moss Company shutter screens are manufactured from our tubular products. Continuous slot screen is produced from shaped wire and rod. Additionally, we possess a full complement of steel fabricating equipment and machine tools to fabricate end connections, special fittings and other accessories.

Manufacturing methods advanced with the advent of atomic hydrogen welding. Today, pipe is produced using spiral seam mills incorporating the submerged arc welding process.
