Demanding specifications for welding consumables

The welding consumables in these appliances come into contact with process media, i.e. gases and liquids. Torsten Undi, Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG, welding technology expert says: "EAS4 and EAS2 wires as well as specialist Ni products are used in production. For acid and corrosion resistance a certain temperature and pressure resistance is required."
