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.

For a given set of conditions, increasing the current decreases the sidewall penetration and width of the weld, as shown in Figure 7.

Welding shall be done by the electrogas welding EGW process, using one electrode wire. Electrogas welding is a machine welding process. The wire and its control mechanism is then raised as the melt solidifies and finally leave behind the desired weld joint. They must be fit tightly against the joint to prevent leaks. This is due to steel grades, the heat-affected zone notch toughness is the symmetry of most electrogas joint designs about the more dependent on the base-metal notch toughness than mid-thickness of the base material, which results in uni- the welding conditions.

Some typical EGW applications are illustrated in Figures 7. Operators should also check the workpiece t,o verify that the joint is correct, and that the base metal condition will allow free passage of the welding head to the top electrogs the joint.


Check water and gas connections. If the weld pool is maintained higher in the shoe, then more slag escapes as spatter.

As welding pro- and weld metal toughness of an A steel electrogas gresses up the joint, the parts are drawn together elctrogas the weldment are shown in Table 7.

Electrogas Welding (EGW)

In comparison with alternative methods. Proper quality control procedures should be used to assure that the proper filler metal is being used and that the qualified welding procedure is being followed.

Gas flow rates depend upon the equipment design, and manufacturer recommendations should be followed.

Note that if a specific electrode meets the requirements of a given classification, this classification also meets the requirements of all lower numbered classifications in the series. This procedure will cover the welding of the base weldinb from 4 in. Automatic rather than manual changing reduces the chance that operator error weldung cause starting porosity. The use of specific base metals for electrode classification tests accommodates the high dilu- tion rate characteristic of single-pass electrogas welding.

Savings have been achieved where components can be joined in the vertical position with a continuous vertical weld. Note that there are two strength classifications, and that different base metals are used in the standard test weldment for each classification. More porosity for thicker works.

The guide may have a shielding gas outlet to deliver gas around the protruding electrode usually supplementary to the shielding gas supplied by ports in the shoesand it mayor may not be water cooled. Metzler Owen Steel Co. As shown in Figure 7. There are two variations of the process commonly used in the United States.


Electrogas welding

The equipment of electrogas welding is reliable and training an operator is easy. Though welding gun may resemble the normal GMAW gun but it is made sleek with a width of about 10 mm so that it may be easily accommodated in a minimum root gap of about 17 mm. On equipment qelding a self-shielded flux cored electrode, starting procedures must be carefully controlled electrogzs minimize porosity in the starting elecctrogas area.

When using a constant-potential power source, increasing the electrode extension by jogging the welding head up will reduce the arc voltage. An arc is initiated between the electrode and the sump.

Starting and finishing tabs are used for plate thickness above 25 mm while only tab-in is provided for lesser thickness.


Single values are maximums. The electrode shall conform to AWS specification A5. Accessory equipment, such as wire feeders, travel mechanisms, oscillators, etc. The computed average value of the three values shall be equal to or greater than the 20 h-Ib 27 J energy level. The mechanical aspects of e1ectrogas welding are strikingly similar to those of the e1ectroslag process from which it was developed.
