    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    A coal dust "hopper" used as part of a coal fired power plant here in Saskatchewan. The one station is in the middle of a shutdown right now so its a rush job.


    Coal dust is extremely abrasive so it's constructed of chromium carbide clad plate. They basically lay down a 1/4" layer of Chromium Carbide alloy onto a 1/4" mild steel plate. I think they do this with a sub arc and wide ribbon electrodes.



    I needed to use 3 welders for this job. One that matched the chemistry of the hard surface layer, another that matches the mild steel and a third with 309L stainless for the portion of the welds that will contact both layers.


    Left weld is mild steel final pass, the one on the right is a "root pass" of stainless. The other side will get a pass with the hard facing wire.

    Very nice SaskWelder

    I was gonna ask if you welded the inside too and what with... then I read your last sentence


    Any idea what the service life on that part is???

    I honestly don't know about this part.

    There have been parts that were originally AR plate and were replaced every 5 years but when we build a unit made with this clad material its been over a decade.

    Works well in the right situation, but is certainly not for everything.

    I'm gonna put these in a box,

    send them to Jody, for a microscopic inspection.

    Could not have done it without "welding tips and tricks"...

    1/8 bed frame metal, .030 mig wire

    thank you Jody !!!

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    The tank I made up for water a few years ago is just too small so I had this 575 gallon laying around but it only had a 3/4 port on the bottom so I found a 2 inch coupling sawed it in half and welded it up

    Didn't want to start the genny or load it in the truck so I ran a couple hundred feet of 12 gauge extension cord for my old miller 211... used .030 flux core wire... seemed to weld just fine.

    Yeah, to be honest I am more of a fabricator than a welder.

    For a long time I was try to expand my welding skills and certifications; focusing solely on welding. But there are too many other welders out there.

    When I decided to focus more on fabrication work, things really expanded for me. While there might be less "glory" in fabrication work as compared to welding, I look at my tax statements and am satisfied.

    If you are on Instagram look up "petayswelding" which is my account. I have a time lapse video of fitting this unit.

    All parts were drawn on Solid Works and then cut on our CNC plasma table (not by me) then I fit it up (making the necessary adjustments needed) to make sure the customer got the product he was promised.

    Saturday, welding up alloy mower hood, with my new Lorch TIG welder. It's a revelation.

    In my younger days I did some fabrication, built big hoppers and stuff for coal breakers and such, and some other oddball stuff, I don't do so much of it anymore, mostly because im all tied up with this mining machinery, when I did do it though I did pretty good just having a torch a grinder a mag drill and a welder. The little knickknack stuff where they want 60 of em and they all got to look alike and be perfect Im no good at, drives me bananas.


    Aint no shame in bein a good fabricator. It all starts with a drawing, fabricator got to know how to read it then operate the shears or whatever hes gonna cut it out with, got to know how to bend it if need be, and he got to plan ahead to put it together without getting in a bind... mean while the guy with the worn out eyeballs his smokin cigarettes and watchin Capt Kangaroo cause he got nothin to do til you say tac me...but you do your own tacking and welding so you do it all start to finish...Good deal and somethin to be proud of. You do good work

    You did it all wrong. YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO WELD IT UP WITH THE VALVE SCREWED IN. Seals better when the nylon meltsName:  tkqe4fh-smiley-two-thumbs-up175028_285604.gif

    Re: Show us what you welded today!

    HEh heh... I won't show you the first try when I did leave the pvc fitting in there to keep things from getting out-of-round I went to the local home duplo to get some 2 inch fittings and stuff.... they don't carry anything over 1-1/2 any more???? WTH I guess I was lucky I had that one coupler laying around or I'd be SOL

    Originally I was gonna replace all the fittings cause the top 2 inchers were all beat up and you couldn't get a plug started in them.... fortunately I found a set of taps in the shop to rethread em'

Size:  91.4 KBMost of my welding lately has been keeping the riding mower deck functional, not pretty at all. In fact, not many of my welds are pretty; i am satisfied with functional usually. I had forged this bent handled chisel for woodworking out of O1, and had a cracked neck on the handle that basically fell off when I tried to peen the end over. I had to fix the gas solenoid on my welder, hooked up the TIG torch, and welded on a piece of rebar as a handle. Problem solved.

    You do some really nice work! I wonder if that is the same wear material that I was supplied a couple of years ago to line a load hopper for a redi-mix concrete plant. The customer supplied the plate and referred to it as 'tungsten carbide'....told me it was something like $4k for a 4x8 sheet of it. They specified the hopper to be built out of AR-400 and the aggregate side to be lined with the wear plate. They requested the wear plates be bolted in to facilitate replacement. The back side won't see much wear as the cement sock hangs down all the way through the load hopper and into the load sock. I had no idea as to the weldability of the wear material, it's very interesting to see how you handled that. Nice work!
