Best Answer

Sub arc welding is a process in which the welding actually occurs while submerged under a layer of flux. Not only does this prevent oxygen from entering the weld and thus porosity, but it also keeps the dangerous arc from sputtering and spattering from the weld.

Difference between ERW and SAW welding?

SAW welding is a type of arc welding while ERW welding is spot or seam welding. SAW stand for submerged arc welding while ERW stands for electric resistance welding.


Why is submerged arc welding referred to as submerged?

Submerged arc welding is called "submerged" because the high voltage electrical current (called the "arc") that heats the metal and wire to weld together is submerged underneath layers of granular earth materials called "flux". About 50% to 90% of this flux can be re-used and fed back into the system with the proper equipment.

Type of weld for Lsaw pipes are double submerged arc welding?

No. Double Submerged Arc Welded is DSAW; LSAW stands for Longitudinal Submerged Arc Welded. As an aside, HSAW stands for Helically Submerged Arc Welded. All of these refer to various types of pipe manufacturing processes.


What is double submerged arc welding?

same as regular SAW but with an extra wire input


The two types of welds are?

Forge welding and resistance welding were the 1st. Sheet metal arc, gas metal arc, submerged arc, electroslag, flux-cored arc, laser beam, and elctrobeam followed later.


The possibility of distortion in the case of submerged arc welding comment by giving reasons?

The heat input in the case of Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) is higher than that in manual welding process. Reason is that the welding proceeds continuously while the work is rotated. In manual welding, it is controlled by the welder besides the time gap for changeover of electrode, relaxation by operator etc.


Is inconel weldable?

INCONEL alloy 600 is readily joined by conventional welding processes. Welding materials for joining alloy 600 are INCONEL Welding Electrode 182 for shielded metal-arc welding*, INCONEL Filler Metal 82 for gas tungsten-arc and gas metal-arc welding, and INCONEL Filler Metal 82 and INCOFLUX 4 Submerged Arc Flux for the submerged-arc process. Welds made with INCONEL Welding Electrode 182 may have decreased ductility after extended exposure to temperatures of 1000° to 1400°F (540° to 760°).
