New GMAW/FCAW Pulsed Power Source for Orbital Pipe Welding


A new brochure introduces the MPS-4000, a microprocessor-based, portable inverter power source for GMAW/FCAW process welding applications. Specifically designed for all-position orbital pipe welding applications, the integral weld Head controller operates all Pipeliner weld Head models. The MPS-4000 provides synergic control of electrode speed and power output - the welder has only to change electrode speed and the power supply will adaptively correct the power supply output characteristics to maintain a stable process. Factory-developed programs are stored for many combinations of alloy, electrode diameter, and shielding gas. The power source is rated IP23 for outdoor job site usage.

A new model orbital FCAW weld Head incorporates a push-pull wire feeder. This allows longer cable lengths and a greater working radius from the power source, while still maintaining stable wire feed characteristics.

The new model is currently being used for shop fabrication and field erection of pipe work for power plants including P-1 1, P-22, and P-91 materials. Several spreads of equipment are being used for cross-country gas pipeline welding in the deserts of Saudi Arabia.
