Preheating before welding | Preheating temperature
During the welding of steel the structure inside the heat affected zone (outside the seam) gains a hardness which is a detrimental to the quality. This hardness increases is in direct relation to the temperature difference between the seam and the area around the seam. By increasing the total welding parts one can minimize the hardness intensity. Thus creating a better welded seam. This temperature depends on the thickness of the work pieces, the heat dissipation, the alloy of the material and the heat treatment during the welding process.
Inductive preheating in pipeline construction
Due to the demand of quality it is necessary to preheat the welding seams in pipeline and offshore constructions. Inductive preheating equipment faces a special challenge in building a welding seam for substructures like Tripods and Monopiles for offshore wind energy plants. The solid construction of the generators from RiTeR Induction ensures a sophisticated tool for all requirements in pre-heating processes.
