Lincoln Electric has added the new Pipeliner® 80Ni1 GMAW wire to its line of Pipeliner consumables. It is designed for semiautomatic or automatic welding of root, hot, fill, and cap passes on up to API X80 grade pipe and root passes on up to X100 grade pipe.
The wire can produce impact properties of 51 to 70 ft.-lbs. at -58 degrees F. According to the manufacturer, the wire provides a stable arc in all positions, including the 3 to 6 o'clock positions, and delivers optimal wire placement, even for narrow groove joint configurations.
The product is manufactured to lot control standards and tested per AWS A5.01, Class S4 Schedule K. It also meets AWS A5.28/A5.28M: 2005 ER80S-G and ASME SFA-5.28 ER80S-G, as well as other agency approvals.
