Hobart's submerged arc welding flux SWX 160Click image to enlarge

Hobart's SWX 160 submerged arc welding flux improves weld quality on chrome-moly, creep resistant steels, says the company.

 This neutral, agglomerated, fluoride-basic flux provides a low-residual content weld deposit to help reduce the risk of temper embrittlement in high-temperature applications, making it well-suited for power generation, petrochemical refinery and pressure vessel applications. It is also usable in step-cooling applications and for submerged arc welding a wide variety of HSLA steels.

The SWX 160 flux helps meet X-factor requirements, along with providing excellent impact toughness to further ensure weld performance in high-strength applications. Additionally, it produces an easily-detached slag to help minimize post-weld cleaning.

Hobart offers the SWX 160 flux in durable 50-pound Excess Air Evacuation (EAE) packaging, which prevents moisture pickup to help reduce the potential for hydrogen-induced cracking.
