Submerged Arc Welding Flux is formulated for chrome-moly steels.

Press Release Summary:




Formulated to improve weld quality on chrome-moly, creep-resistant steels, SWX 160 provides low-residual content weld deposit to help reduce risk of temper embrittlement in high-temperature applications. This neutral, agglomerated, fluoride-basic flux also helps meet X-factor requirements and provides impact toughness. Resulting slag detaches easily to help minimize post-weld cleaning. Suitable areas of use include power generation, petrochemical refinery, and pressure vessel applications.

Hobart Offers Submerged Arc Welding Flux for Chrome-Moly Steels



TROY, Ohio. — Hobart has specially formulated its SWX 160 submerged arc welding flux to improve weld quality on chrome-moly, creep-resistant steels. This neutral, agglomerated, fluoride-basic flux provides a low-residual content weld deposit to help reduce the risk of temper embrittlement in high-temperature applications, making it well-suited for power generation, petrochemical refinery and pressure vessel applications. It is also usable in step-cooling applications and for submerged arc welding a wide variety of HSLA steels.



The SWX 160 flux helps meet X-factor requirements, along with providing excellent impact toughness to further ensure weld performance in high-strength applications. Additionally, it produces an easily-detached slag to help minimize post-weld cleaning.



Hobart offers the SWX 160 flux in durable 50-pound Excess Air Evacuation (EAE) packaging, which prevents moisture pickup to help reduce the potential for hydrogen-induced cracking.
