Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) October 20, 2008 -- Welder World has just released a new section of their website that has Welding and basic Submerged Arc Welding tips defined and everything else on Submerged Arc Welding. This is part of a new community website that is all about the Submerged Arc Welding Basic Information. Members and non-members can visit this Submerged Arc Welding Tips and Basics page on the Welder World website for free at: http://www.welderworld.com/.
Here is an excerpt from the new Submerged Arc Welding Tips and Basics webpage:
âOne of the most common welding techniques is the Submerged Arc Welding (SAW). It is important to note that this was one of the first types of welding to get a patent. To do this type of welding there needs to be an electrode that is either tubular or solid (consumable). This will need a continuous feed as well.
In order to protect the weld and the arc zone they are "submerged" to protect them from contamination from the atmosphere. Fusible flux that includes lime, silica, manganese oxide or calcium fluoride is used under a blanket. Other compounds can be used as well.
As it melts the flux acts as a conductor and creates a path for the current that moves between the electrode and the work that is being done. This creates a thicker layer of the flux and it covers the metal as it melts. By doing this process there is no spatter or sparks because the flux is covering everything. This process will also suppress any ultraviolet radiation or fumes that will from this Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) process.â
There is plenty of more information on the new Submerged Arc Welding website that can be found by visiting: http://www.welderworld.com/. There is also a special going on now that allows members to gain access to free ebooks and other free materials just for signing up as a member of the welding website for free at: http://www.welderworld.com/ Users should check back often to the Welding general page as more information will be added as the website expands and grows.
