- Weld studs available in Incoloy 800 & 825
- Features & benefits of Incoloy weld studs
- How an Incoloy arc weld stud works
Incoloy weld studs are available in a variety of fastener styles for manual (MIG, TIG) arc and capacitor discharge welding methods. Oxidation, carburization and creep resistant, Incoloy weld studs provide a secure, cross-sectional weld in single-sided access situations, making them ideal for long-term exposure in high temperature environments.
Not to be confused with Inconel, Incoloy weld studs are made of a nickel alloy which contains iron and a lower content of nickel. Incoloy is essentially a more economical option to Inconel, yet with more restricted corrosion resistance and temperature limits. Incoloy is widely used for its resistance to seawater, brine, sour gas and high chloride environments at elevated temperatures, which make it a popular choice in the oil and gas and power industries.
Available in alloy 800 and 825, Incoloy weld studs are an ideal way to securely attached fasteners in extreme applications where reaching both sides of a structure is impossible or undesired. These weld studs can be attached by a variety of welding techniques, such as MIG or TIG welding or they can be attached by automated welding guns using Arc or Capacitor Discharge (CD) technologies.
Arc and Capacitive Discharge (CD) Weld Stud Benefits
- Security: Unlike the peripheral weld used on a common bolt, the weld used to secure a weld stud fastener is a full cross sectional weld, so the full face of the fastener is welded in place for a strong, secure hold. And since there are no drilled holes – which weakens the structural integrity of the application – the attachment is even stronger.
- Speed: Installing an Incoloy weld stud is a fast and simple process with a most fasteners taking less than 1 second to weld in place. Plus there is no secondary work such as drilling, polishing or grinding.
- Simplicity: Weld studs require almost no special skills and minimal training and equipment is needed for installation. In addition, the equipment is also portable.
- Variety: Incoloy weld studs are available in a wide variety of fastener styles including (but not limited to) fully threaded, partially threaded, full base, reduced base, long, tapped base, and shoulder thread to name a few.
