Welding Consumables for Pipelines

30. oct 2020

Even today during the e-generation period, we are still dependent on Oil & Gas for approximately 60% of our needs. New Oil & Gas deposits are located in very remote regions or have to be extracted from deep water. To move energy towards the countries where it is needed requires crossing oceans and deserts by using high strength steel pipes.

Böhler Welding understands the importance of this resource and lets no drop get to waste – with Lasting Connections by high quality welding consumables leakages are avoided all along the line.

The Böhler Welding program answers the industry’s general trend towards semi- and fully automatic welding processes, the use of high strength steels with reduced wall thickness, as well as application under demanding climatic conditions.

A wide selection of manual arc welding electrodes comprises types with cellulosic coating for highly efficient vertical-down welding and basic low-hydrogen types with vertical-down or vertical-up operability. A broad range of products for manual, semi and fully- mechanized welding features solid wires and rods, self- and gas-shielded cored wires and submerged arc wire/flux combinations for double jointing.
