Pipe welding generally refers to a set of professional skills used for the joining of pieces of metal. This task generally requires welders to learn several methods of connecting pipes and to understand the factors that affect the quality of the connections that they intend to make. Many of the individuals who engage in pipe welding are professionals who specialize in this area of metal work, and they are usually certified because pipes are often used to transport hazardous materials, which pose a risk if the connections or repairs are not done properly.
