Experiencing arc blow?
Is your project delayed?
Demag Solutions can help you get back on schedule, reduce welding delays and even increase job performance.
Demag Solutions’ highly experienced field personnel and dedicated pipeline demagnetizing equipment makes welding faster with fewer problems.
Eliminating arc blow
Magnetic Arc Blow can cause welding to be impossible. When residual magnetism exists in the pipes, it causes the current to be directed away from the weld, the weld material sputters and the joint can’t be welded.
Due to the sputtering of the weld material in the magnetic joint, incomplete fusion of the metal occurs. This leads to porous welds which leads to a loss of weld quality. The porosity can be noticed by inspectors and through weld x-rays.
When weld quality fails inspection, the joint must be ground out and welded again. This leads to project delays, cost overruns, as well as welder frustration and fatigue.
Demag Solutions works side-by-side with welders to solve your magnetism problems. Using our dedicated pipeline demagnetizer, we dramatically reduce joint time and relieve the frustration involved in welding magnetized material. Using Demag Solutions’ services also saves your welding equipment from breaking down caused by overuse and overheating while trying to limit the magnetism with welding cables.
Demag Solutions can also be a resource to any Pipeline Integrity Management Program to ensure that pipeline assets are maintained in a safe and reliable condition.
Demag Solutions is available for short term and long term contracts anywhere in the world.
