Recommended procedure for Tig welding

  • Thoroughly clean all area to be welded.
  • For butt welding of thick plate, bevel edges to 65-70 deg included angle
  • Use Zirconium tungsten electrode, ground to a  tapered blunt point
  • Use high frequency stabilized Alternating Current  and welding grade – high purity Argon gas
  • Preheat thick section before welding

SHIELDING GAS : Pure Argon
