Taxonomy: Submerged Arc Welding

Description

Submerged arc welding is a process of welding (joining by melting) that occurs within a layer of conductive flux.

 

Overview of Process

Submerged arc welding is a special type of welding process that occurs in conductive flux. The workpiece is embedded in the flux, and a consumable electrode is placed near it. The flux becomes conductive and allows for an electrical arc between the electrode and the workpiece, creating high temperatures that melt and form a permanent bond.
