A.R.O.

Abrasion Resistant Overlay, tough outer layer that is resistant to impact, gouge, abrasion and

penetration commonly used for bores

 

Back End

Crews behind welding crew comprised of pipe gang and firing line

 

Bead  

1st pass of weld also known as the root pass

 

Bell Hole

A ditch area made wide through proper slope for safe entry into excavation where hands enter and work during tie in  

 

Berm   

Dirt or other earth material positioned by machine to contain fluids or constructed to divert water away from working area, may be used along trench to reduce exposure to vehicles

 

Blast Mat

Assembled chain of tires connected by chain or bolt that are placed over blast area being worked to reduce exposure of flying debris

 

Blow Down

A release of gas, air, or water from a compressed loaded pipe section, seen during hydro test completion and to isolate sections of live lines 

Boom

Pipe layer also known as a side boom tractor, very significant to pipeline construction and maintenance

 

Bottle Neck

Area of pipeline right-of-way where the width of working space is reduced

 

Break Over

Point where equipment approaches and passes down peak of hill or mountain, also used to describe point for side boom position in relation to adjusting pipe in clamps during tie in process on big inch pipe

 

Buffing

Smoothing the surface of a bevel by use of an abrasive or wire wheel

 

Bull Horns

Parted blow off stacks in stations, also tie off points for load securement on side booms  

 

CAD Weld

Metal fusion of test leads for cathodic protection to pipe cathode and casing

Cap

Last top pass of weld
