What is a Steamfitter/Pipefitter?

Steamfitters/pipefitters install and repair low and high pressure piping systems and their components, including heating and processing applications. They also do gas fitting.

Steamfitters/pipefitters will:

  • Read and interpret drawings, blueprints, and specifications to determine layout requirements.
  • Cut openings for pipe in walls, floors, and ceilings using hand and power tools or machines.
  • Select type and size of pipe required.
  • Measure, cut, thread, and bend pipe to required shape using hand and power tools.
  • Install supports, valves, piping, and control systems.
  • Remove and replace work components and reactive systems.
  • Weld, braze, cement, solder, and thread joints to join pipes and fabricate sections of piping systems.
