New Stainless Steel Electrodes Developed for Cryogenic Applications
Fort Loramie, OH - Select-Arc, Inc. has introduced two gas-shielded, flux cored, stainless steel electrodes that are specifically designed for cryogenic applications where good weld metal toughness is needed.
SelectAlloy 308L-AP CRYO is composed of 18.5% chromium, 10% nickel and a maximum carbon content of 0.04%; SelectAlloy 316L-AP CRYO with a nominal weld metal composition of 17.5% chromium, 13% nickel, 2.5% molybdenum and a maximum 0.04% carbon content. Both premium electrodes offer flat, well washed bead characteristics that can be achieved with minimal weaving. They produce very low spatter with excellent slag peeling to minimize cleanup.
Available in .045" and 1/16" diameters, the all position SelectAlloy 308L-AP CRYO and SelectAlloy 316L-AP CRYO electrodes are utilized in the fabrication and repair of cryogenic components in applications which require weld metal toughness at liquid nitrogen temperatures (-320 degrees F).
