Cross country pipeline welding
Cellulosic electrodes are generally used, adopting the stove pipe technique (welding vertical down), to enhance productivity while welding cross country pipelines. Electrodes are selected on basis of the composition and strength of pipe material in use. In order to further increase productivity, semi automatic welding using flux cored wires is being increasingly used for the filler pass and or for capping. In such cases, the following processes are adopted sequentially:
  1. Root run with E 6010 using a DC power source
  2. Hot pass run with E 8010 also with a DC power source
  3. Filler bead with either 7018 Electrode in Manual mode or with E 81T8 self shielded flux core wire in Semi automatic mode
  4. Capping with either 7018 Electrode in Manual mode or with E 81T8 self shielded flux core wire in Semi automatic mode
Welding Equipment Options
DC welding sets
Motor generator sets and diesel engine driven welding power sources are popularly used for welding in manual mode (DC). Diesel engine driven welding power sources are used where availability of power is a constraint and these can have one welding output (single operator) or two welding outputs (double operator). Increasingly, diesel engine driven power generators of varying capacities are being used to supply power to 4 or more welding power sources. Some of the advantages of using a double operator diesel engine welding set or a diesel engine driven power generator connected to many welding power sources are saving on maintenance costs and in fuel consumption of one diesel engine compared to equivalent number of single diesel engine welding sets.
Multi process welders
As mentioned earlier, for increasing the productivity for Filler pass and for Capping, semi automatic self shielded FCAW process is also being adopted.
In such cases it is preferable to use welding equipment which has capability to deliver Multi process with Constant Current (CC) and Constant Voltage (CV) characteristics for manual welding and semi automatic welding respectively. Where power is a constraint, diesel engine driven power generators are connected to these multi process welders.
