Why is onsite industrial heat treatment so important?

The welding process introduces two specific side effects that have a significant impact on the way in which a welded structure performs in service;

  1. It introduces a residual stress system
  2. It affects the metallurgical structures

Both of these arise from the thermal dynamics of the welding process and under certain circumstances, if the structure is left in the as welded state, the process will have generated a condition which will render the structure unfit for purpose.

Therefore to ensure the success of the welding process and the integrity of the final product, additional heat is applied in a controlled manner which provides a fundamental part of the quality assurance process chain.
