The Marangoni effect is the mass transfer along an interface between two fluids due to the surface tension gradient (which fluid from areas with low surface tension is transferred to areas with higher surface tension). In particular, a negative value … Continue reading What is Marangoni effect in GTAW welding?
As discussed in our previous article Preheating temperature distance range preheat is really necessary in steel welding to control the cooling rate. More specifically, preheat is used to slow the cooling rate down in order to prevent excessive hardness in the … Continue reading How to determine preheating exemption in welding?
A submersible pump is an equipment that pushes the fluid to the surface instead of pulling it out. This pump has a sealed motor coupled with the pump’s body that pushes the liquid to the surface. Submersible pumps are mainly … Continue reading What is Submersible pump
If you own or work at a job shop you may have noticed an increase in the number of customers that require the use of qualified welding procedures to build their products. Some fabricators are even getting this request from long time customers who never required them in the past. So why is this? The purpose of having a welding procedure specification (WPS) is to give the welder detailed instructions on how to make a weld. These instructions consist of parameters that need to be used such as amperage, voltage, travel speed, transverse and travel angles, gas flow rate, etc. … Continue reading Why WPS need to be qualified?
Example of balancing a huge fan with much more vibration than first one. Result after repair: Vibration went from 3.1 mm/s to 0,2mm/s. Total 1,6kg was needed to get it perfect 🤩 #vibrationanalysis #vibrationtesting #balancing Continue reading Vibration test example
