Compatible with Traditional Construction Method (Bottom to Top). Apply SINGLE circumferential SAW (Submerged Arc Welding) seams INSIDE or OUTSIDE the tank. It drives hanging on the tank's upper edge.

Compatible with Tank Jacking Construction Method (Top to Bottom). Apply circumferential SAW (Submerged Arc Welding) seams ONLY from the OUTSIDE of the tank. It drives on a temporary rail (see sketch below). For welding circumferential seams from the INSIDE of the tank, use a Girth Welder Model AGW-1-C

1. The user is solely responsible for certifying WPS & PQR. A professional welding engineer should design [considering the applicable Code and Standards] by selecting the essential welding parameters such as plate beveling, wire and flux specifications, amperes and voltage, welding speed, etc.

2. Rental Facility for Tank Welding Practice

Our company does not provide training; Girth Welders must be operated by an experienced submerged arc welding operator with an updated ticket. A rental facility is available to familiarize yourself with our equipment and obtain the samples needed to qualify for the Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS), Procedure Qualifications Records (PQR), and Welder Qualification Test (WQT).

• The user should provide a steel-base plate with beveling, wire and flux.
• Minimum rental of five business days in an eight-hour shift. Includes: Two AGW-1-C and one SAW Welding Tractor.
• Maximum two operators at a time and one supervisor.
• Booking: Two to four weeks in advance.
• The user is required to provide a certificate of liability insurance.
