Arcos Industries LLC offers new bare and covered stainless steel electrodes, Arcos 16/8/2, which are manufactured for high-temperature welding applications.
The bare version (ER16/8/2) is used primarily for welding stainless steel Types 16-8-2, 316, and 347 for high-pressure, high-temperature piping systems. The covered electrode (E16/8/2) features good hot ductility properties and offers relative freedom from weld and crater cracking, the company reports. It also provides additional safety in welding highly restrained joints or crack-sensitive alloys.
Both electrodes are designed for welding cat crackers and furnace parts. In addition, the products are suitable for welding components in the petrochemical, chemical processing, and power generation industries.
