|What are Pipefitters Responsibilities?
Pipefitters are responsible for the fabrication and installation of piping systems that carry the ship’
s life blood in the form of liquids and gases under varying pressures. The pipefitter must acquire a
range of skills including measurement, fit-up, bending and installation techniques to comply with
close tolerances demanded in such a complex craft. Pipefitters work with piping ranging in size
from very small tubing to very large diameter piping. Piping materials and fittings are made from a
variety of type of metals and alloys depending on the system pressure and function. Systems
include hydraulic, lube oil, high and low pressure air, high and low pressure steam, sea water,
chilled water and potable water. Pipefitters are also responsible for grooming systems in
preparation for company, Navy and government inspections.
Imagine a vessel that survives the ocean's crushing depths and freezing temperatures.
Imagine a vessel that does not need refueling during its entire service life.
Imagine a vessel that is virtually silent while underway.
Imagine a vessel that does all that and protects the freedoms of the people of the United States.
Now imagine the immense challenge it is to create such a vessel.
Electric Boat designs and builds nuclear submarines. This is the challenge to every engineer at
Electric Boat. Great minds do great things when faced with great challenges. The engineers at
Electric Boat are second to none.
Designers at Electric Boat are responsible for designing the most complex ships ever to go to sea.
The highly trained men and women who make up the design force at Electric Boat utilize state of
the art computer systems to support ship design from concept design through detailed design,
construction and life cycle support. Designs are developed utilizing disciplined processes within a
team environment to ensure that designs meet producibilty, affordability and quality requirements
while satisfying stringent operability requirements.
The designers at Electric Boat strive to be the best in the world and the success of the Submarine
service is a testament to their capabilities.
