Coughlin Equipment - Knuckleboom truck

Providing our customers with the custom fabricated equpiment they want at the level of quality they demand is no small task, and requires an extensive and ongoing investment in the latest advances in machinery, equipment and tools.

Of course, expensive machinery is still just machinery without the qualified, talented operators to put it to use. Coughlin Equipment employs highly experienced people at every level of the organization from design experts to fabricators, welders to installers, drivers and more to help insure that you receive the results you expect.

Below is a brief introduction into some of the equipment currently used at Coughlin Equipment.

Kenworth Knuckleboom truck

The knuckleboom is used to install the equipment we manufacture and sell, including storage tanks, flares, pumping units and more.

This capability makes sure we know it’s installed when it’s promised, and that the installation is done right. You wouldn’t expect anything less.


Subarc welder

Our subarc welder is used in many elements of our fabrication facility, and allows us to meet or exceed ASME code regulations on the equipment we manufacture.

The subarc welding provides deep weld penetration which produces sound, uniform, corrosion resistant welds and is ideally suited to the long straight seams on rotated pipes or vessels.


CNC Plasma Cutter

(with oxygen fuel)

The plasma cutter enables us to use CAD software to design equipment to your exact specifications, load those CAD drawings into the software then execute the designed cuts with accuracy and consistent repeatability.

The results are custom fabricated equipment that meet or exceed your exact specifications.

Hydrostatic testing

Coughlin Equipment performs hydrostatic testing on the equipment we manufacture. A hydrostatic test is a way in which pressure vessels such as separators and fuel tanks can be tested for strength and leaks. The test involves filling the vessel or tank with a liquid, usually water, which may be dyed to aid in visual leak detection, and pressurization of the vessel to the specified test pressure.

Some companies test using air pressure alone. We think it’s worth the extra time and expense of hydrostatic testing to insure when a piece of equipment leaves our yard, it’s ready for prime time.
