ESAB Expands Family of Filler Metals for LNG Applications, Launches Shield-Bright Flux Cored Wire For 9% Nickel Steel
ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced Shield-Bright NiCrMo-3, a 625-type electrode for manual and automatic flux cored wide-weave welding of 9% nickel steel in the vertical-up (3G) position and using 75% argon/25% CO2 shielding gas.
“We specifically developed Shield-Bright NiCrMo-3 for a U.S. LNG tank fabricator that had shifted from a 1/8 in. (3mm) vs. 5/32 in. (4 mm) root gap using a ceramic backer,” says David Hamilton, Director of Sales, Stoody, an ESAB brand. “Wider gaps are challenging for high-nickel wires because the puddle tends to be sluggish and have a high crown, but Shield-Bright NiCrMo-3creates an extremely flat bead profile with excellent tie-in at the toes ...
