English term or phrase: stripl/plate end weld
"SAWH shall be not supplied with strip/plate end welds (skelp end welds)." - cały kontekst. Ze specyfikacji zamówienia rur stalowych do gazociągów.

SAWH to typ rury (technologia produkcji). Skelp to "wstęga na rury", jak (chyba) tu: Generalnie nie jestem pewien co autor ma na myśli. W wersji angielskiej pisał nie-native, miejscami nie do końca mu to idzie.

Czy ktoś ma jakiś pomysł?

Reference: skelp-end welds (SEWs)

Reference information:
Skelp (sometimes spelled scelp) is wrought iron or steel that is rolled or forged into narrow strips and ready to be made into pipe or tubing by being bent (into a cylindrical shape) and welded. The word is most commonly used in the traditional terminology of smithing and in the iron and steel industries. -


The production of large diameter pipe by the helical welding process requires that consecutive coils be welded together to facilitate the advance of each subsequent coil through the forming section of the pipe mill. Traditionally, the skelp ends have been joined by a single-pass submerged arc weld simply designed to join the skelp ends together and provide sufficient strength and ductility to survive the pipe forming operation. Subsequent to pipe forming, the length of pipe containing the skelp end weld (SEW) has been cut off and discarded. This process results in both a substantial yield loss as well as additional processing costs as the shortened pipes are later double jointed to produce full size lengths. To overcome these inefficiencies, a process has been developed for making high quality skelp end welds which meet API and CSA requirements. In this paper, the welding process will be described and evaluation of the integrity of the skelp end weld is discussed. -
