Lincoln AGW flux and wire / SAW welding consumables available through Tank Welding. We realizes even a perfect automatic welding solution might not be able to meet the desired production requirements without the use of the correct welding consumables, as a result, a conscious effort had been made by All Time to work with consumable manufacturers such as Lincoln Electric to develop and supply the most effective consumable solutions for specific automatic welding applications such as 2G SAW, multi wire SAW, EGW-SS and 5G MIG for pipe root pass etc.
Horizontal position welding for storage tank erection is the most weld time consuming part of a tank project, SAW offers the most effective solution in terms of quality and productivity, but it’s consumable selection requires consideration of the following:
Key flux features
Easy slag removal on both root and fill passes
Excellent weld bead appearance
Suitable to weld shell materials according to API 650 with the correct combination of wire
Key wire features
Low C, medium Mn, high Si and 1% Ni SAW wire
Use with basic neutral fluxes in order to obtain excellent impact properties
EGW offers the most effective vertical welding solution for storage tanks and heavy wall structures in terms of quality and productivity, but the capacity to weld up to 50mm (2″) inches thick wall in a single pass at very high deposition requires a specific grade of wire under the AWS classification such as EG70T-2 or equivalent. Below are the features of the EGW wire that is necessary to be considered for an application:
Mechanical Properties against the parent material grade and the operation condition of the welded structure.
EGW wire for low temperature operation will be required for specific applications such as cryogenic storage tanks or beam structures with high toughness requirements in sub zero temperatures.
Welding conditions on site.
That is the reason why EGW wires are commonly available as self shielded wire (EGW-SS) or gas shielded wire (EGW-GS).
Productivity vs welded properties
Usually there is a tradeoff between high deposition with high heat input with relatively lower deposition against better weld metal properties
Use of the automatic vertical welders
Matching the correct automatic welding equipment with the right EGW wire could yield the same productivity and weld quality with the use of a lower cost consumables.
