The Chhara LNG Terminal stands as a pioneering project in India's energy infrastructure, facilitating the import and distribution of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to meet the country's growing energy demands. D&H Sécheron has played a crucial role in this mega project by supplying a range of exceptional welding consumables, including AUTOTHERME-1, SUPRATHERME, BATOX-B, RUTOX-B, and MAXFIL 308L. These welding consumables have ensured this remarkable terminal's structural integrity, corrosion resistance, and quality of critical components.
AUTOTHERME-1: Versatility and Strength for Structural Steels
D&H Sécheron's AUTOTHERME-1, a copper-coated mild steel GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) wire, has been employed in the Chhara LNG Terminal project. AUTOTHERME-1 is specifically designed for welding mild steel, low-carbon steel, and other structural steels with a tensile strength of up to 540 MPa. This consumable offers remarkable versatility and strength, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.
The advanced technology and superior metallurgical properties of AUTOTHERME-1 contribute to exceptional weld strength, ensuring the longevity and durability of the welded joints. The copper coating enhances the wire's electrical conductivity, improving arc stability and facilitating smooth and stable welding operations. By utilizing AUTOTHERME-1, D&H Sécheron has contributed to the structural integrity and safety of the Chhara LNG Terminal.
SUPRATHERME: Superior Weld Quality and Toughness
SUPRATHERME, another remarkable welding consumable provided by D&H Sécheron, has played a vital role in the Chhara LNG Terminal project. This 7018 electrode is a heavy-coated, low hydrogen, iron powder-type electrode that excels in producing tough and ductile welds of radiographic quality. SUPRATHERME's exceptional characteristics make it ideally suited for critical applications where weld quality and durability are of utmost importance.
With its low hydrogen content, SUPRATHERME ensures minimal porosity in the welds, resulting in superior joint strength and corrosion resistance. The electrode's capability to produce radiographic quality welds meets the stringent standards required for critical infrastructure such as the Chhara LNG Terminal. Welders utilizing SUPRATHERME can achieve outstanding weld quality, ensuring the integrity and reliability of the terminal's components.
BATOX-B and RUTOX-B: Corrosion Resistance and Intergranular Corrosion Protection
In addition to AUTOTHERME-1 and SUPRATHERME, D&H Sécheron has supplied BATOX-B and RUTOX-B electrodes for the Chhara LNG Terminal. BATOX-B is a basic-coated electrode that deposits low carbon 19Cr-10Ni stainless steel weld metal, offering excellent resistance to intergranular corrosion. RUTOX-B, on the other hand, is a stainless steel electrode producing an extra low carbon 19Cr-10Ni weld metal with remarkable resistance to intergranular corrosion.
By utilizing BATOX-B and RUTOX-B, D&H Sécheron ensures that critical components of the Chhara LNG Terminal exhibit superior corrosion resistance and protection against intergranular corrosion. These consumables play a crucial role in maintaining the long-term integrity and reliability of the terminal's infrastructure, ensuring its operational excellence.
MAXFIL 308L: High-Quality Welding
Another welding consumable provided by D&H Sécheron for the Chhara LNG Terminal project is MAXFIL308L. This consumable is a high-quality FCAW wire. MAXFIL 308L offers excellent corrosion resistance and weldability, ensuring the integrity and durability of stainless steel components in the terminal.
