EBFlow
Ebflow welding

LOCAL VACUUM TECHNOLOGY - EBFLOW

Features

- Facilitating very high joint completion rates in thick      section steels

- 20 to 30 times faster than traditional methods

- 200mm per minute in 150mm thick steel have been achieved

- Using a system of sliding seals and precision handling enables fast longitudinal and circumferential welds on large work pieces

- A coarse vacuum is established and maintained only where it is needed

- Pre-heating is not necessary and consumables are not required during the weld

- Minimal distortion, on average only 10% of the weld thickness

- Quality and reliability are improved with immediate post weld inspection possible

- Achieving the fastest thick section welding rates ever 

 

Application

- Tubulars for Wind Farms and Oil & Gas and exploration 

- Wind Tower Flanges

- Nuclear Power Generation and waste containment

- Pressure vessels

- Storage tanks
