Welding Applications

Applying Knowledge for Practical Solutions

At it’s most basic level, welding is the process of joining two pieces of metal. This metal bonding process is used in almost every application where material need to be butted together to form a connection that is as strong as, if not stronger than, the original material. Welding is done on every shape, size, and type of material that there is available in the industry today, from precision parts that support fluid movement through medical devises to the largest piping systems used in chemical processing and desalinization processes. If there is metal to be joined, there is a welding process. And consumables offers the exactly filler material, rods, and bulk wire you need in your application.

Containers for storage are commonplace is a range of industries. From fluid and gas storage in petrochemical processing to water and grain storage in food processing, welded tanks offer flexible solutions. Joining of corners, seams, and structural support allow for designs that can meet the specific volume, movement, and pressure requirements of a storage facility.


Investments in pipes, valves, and other items used to transport and store materials in a harsh environment can be protected through the process of bonding (or overlaying) a more corrosion resistant material to a less resistant material, protecting it from the chemical reactions that prematurely weaken metals. Overlay/Cladding is an effective solution because it is applicable to a variety of shapes and many different alloys can be utilized.


The movement and storage of chemicals through and between the different aspects of separation, reduction, and reaction is critical to the effectiveness of the process as well as the safety and health of employees. Eliminating unwanted reactions through overlay and cladding, creating strong, lasting joints in storage or pressure vessels, and securing all pipes, flanges, valves, and other potential leakage points are critical. Welding with the proper alloys and with the proper procedures ensures that a processing facility can operate effectively and efficiently, safely and securely, each and every day.


At their core, pipes are simple tools that allow for the efficient transport of materials from where they are to where they need to be. They are a ubiquitous sign of industrial ingenuity and provide a tested solution to many of the world’s largest industries. Whether combining lengths of pipes with a similar welding material or overlaying metals to reduce or eliminate corrosive reactions, the economic and practical solutions offered by welding are unmatched by any other method of joining or cladding.


High strength, advanced metals used in today’s power generation turbines require predictable performance and streamlined production, both of which are provided with the precision joining procedures available with modern welding alloys. Whether dissimilar metals are being overlaid to provide added functionality to blades, or similar metals are being joined to complete a housing or pipe viaduct, the welding of material gives Hydro Electric projects the flexibility and proven performance required to keep the lights on and the factories moving throughout the ever-connected world.


Anywhere you need to dissipate sound within a closed mechanical system you can employ a muffler. Because sound in nothing more than pressurized waves formed by vibrations (from explosions in an internal combustion engine or the pistons and valves in an air compressor), these waves can be canceled with another pressurized wave. This all occurs inside a pressurized vessel, meaning safe, high strength welds used to create that vessel are required for long muffler life and peak performance. Optimizing welding alloys at those joints will maximize muffler performance.


Industrial pumping and piping systems move material at high pressure throughout facilities, towns, and regions to keep our economy moving. The ability to regulate this flow of material is made possible by the ability to create strong valves, flanges, and other connections through a complete system. The joining of varying sizes and shapes of metal is necessary to maximize performance and minimize the cost of maintaining new designs alongside older designs while keeping downtime to a minimum. Modern welding allows for a high level of flexibility while still providing high strength and long-lasting joints.


To successfully weld nickel-alloyed steels that remain tough at subzero temperatures, choosing the proper welding consumable is important. For example, hydrogen and LNG projects require a filler metal that is tough, crack-resistant and offers a specific level of magnetism. To improve toughness at subzero temperatures, the element nickel is added to stainless steel alloys.
