Examining Self-Shielded Flux Cored Welding (FCAW-S) in High-Strength Pipeline Welding Applications as an Alternative to Stick Welding (SMAW
There are a couple of ways to reduce pipeline costs as it relates to the pipe itself. One is to reduce the weight of steel used in its construction. The other is to increase the pressure tolerances of that pipeline so that it may pump a greater amount of material through it. These factors have led pipelines to transition to high-strength steels such as X80, X90 and X100.
High-strength steel provides obvious advantages, such as lower cost-per-foot, increased strength with thinner wall thicknesses that require less filler metal to complete the joint (reducing welding time and consumables), and reduced hauling and fuel costs because of the lighter weight. It also made it easier to transport pipe to more remote areas, and proves better suited to areas prone to significant temperature extremes. Read more
