SELECTING SUBMERGED ARC FLUXES FOR CARBON AND LOW-ALLOY STEELS
The key to th eversatility of submerged-arc welding is the flux itself. The selection of the appropriate flux is of prime importance, but the user is confronted with a bewildering number of flux/electrode combinations from which to choose. After outlining the development of these fluxes since the submerged-arc process was first commercialised in 1936, the Author (of the Union Carbide Corp.) discusses them and provides guidance on their selection, under the headings: Flux Behaviour (Flux Chemistry--Slag/Metal Interactions). Influence of the Electrode. Electrode and Flux Selection (Meeting Mechanical Property Requirements-- Meeting Performance Needs). Welding Applications (Structural--Machinery Component--Gas Tank--Heavy Vessel (A Nuclear Steam-Generator)). Summary.
