One of the welding processes that used in Engineering field is the electrogas welding. There are several types of welding processes similar to. Abstract. Electrogas arc welding (EGW) is used for vertical position welding of sheer strakes and hatch side coamings of container ships because of its higher. (13 mm) could be satisfactorily welded in the vertical position in a single pass. This technique is called electrogas welding (EGW). EGW has enjoyed steady.

The general classification system of electrodes for EGW is illustrated in Figure 7. The welding power supply shall have a constant potential characteristic. Both variations use retaining shoes weldjng to confine the molten weld metal, which permits welding in the vertical position. Published hundreds of articles on various engineering topics.

Thus, weld composition and mechanical properties can vary substantially with different types of This will allow the welding head assembly to track up the steel and even with different heats of the same steel grade.

The electrode may be oscillated horizontally to weld thicker materials. Based on the GMAW process, it can feed a solid electrode into the joint; based on the flux cored arc welding process FCAWit can incorporate a flux within a tubular electrode. Postweld Heat Treatment None required by this procedure specification. The wire electrode feeder must be capable of smooth continuous feeding of small diameter wires at high speeds and larger diameter wires electrogaw slower speeds.


Poorly fitted backing shoes can result in the same problem. The outboard shoe shall be water-cooled copper. The process Before machining commences two water-cooling shoes [1] are placed on each side of the weld zone to prevent the melt flowing out during the welding process.


Water-cooled copper retaining shoes are normally e,ectrogas on each side of the joint to retain the molten weld metal.

Elwctrogas is designed to be continuous from beginning to end. BoxMiami, Florida Consumable guide EGW uses relatively simple equipment, as shown in Figure 7. Weld solidification is covered in detail in Chapter 4 of the Welding Handbook, Volume 1, 8th Edition. Recheck and adjust welding conditions. It is easily prevented by using adequate thickness of material on the bottom of the sump, or by attaching a backup plate to the sump.

The high heat-affected-zone hardness results from the metallurgical reactions that occur when the shielded metal arc weld cools at a rapid rate from the welding temperature. Even in some applications involving thinner base materials, EGW may result in cost savings because of its efficiency and simple joint preparation.

When welding plates of different thicknesses, the thicker plate should be tapered, and the retaining shoe should be tapered to match it. However, the degree of protection from radiant energy afforded by the filter plate or lens when. Some standards presently permitting use of the EGW process sometimes with additional restrictions are listed below: Electrogas welded example, includes qualification requirements for structural quenched-and-tempered steels will exhibit lower strength welding.

The insert will prevent squeezing the head assembly in the weld groove as the base metals contract with the removal of the welding heat. If the weld is not sound, the discontinuities are often continuous, and therefore, the entire weld may have to be removed and the joint rewelded. Preheat may increase resistance to cracking when welding: Either method will permit the excess slag to escape from the weld groove.


Preheating the restart area reverses the shrinkage forces. The shoes may be held in place with wedges placed between the shoes and strong backs welded to the workpiece.


Excessive welding current also causes a low form factor which contributes to centerline weld crack susceptibility. Some examples of these steel grades are shown in Table 7. Melted filler metal and base metal collect in a pool beneath the arc and solidify to form the weld. If they are not grounded, insulation breakdown might cause these units to become electrically “hot” with respect to ground. Suitable clothing should be worn to protect skin from being exposed to arc radiation.

If chlorinated solvents wleding been used to degrease or clean the workpiece, a check should be made to ensure WELD I N G that the solvent has been removed before welding. Successful users are familiar with the recommendations of the equipment manufacturer.

A checklist should be used by the electtogas operator to assure that the equipment is properly set up and that all of WE L DIN G the required operating adjustments are made.

Shielding gas is C02 for solid electrodes. In general, increasing root opening or the voltage increases the form wlectrogas, while increasing the current or decreasing the root opening decreases the form factor. Before starting to weld.

Shultz, Chairman Taylor-Winfield Corp. The diameter of the electrode shall be 0.
