The Hammerhead™ welding electrode is a specially designed and formulated ‘wet-spot’ electrode for spot/plug welding of steels, which can be used both above and underwater. This permits a real alternative to conventional wet welding, which required high levels of skill to produce high quality welds. Using the Hammerhead process quality welds can be produced without the need for any conventional welding skills, as all that is required to produce a weld is for the diver to press the electrode onto the surface of the material, where it will then pierce through the plates to be joined forming a spot/plug weld.
WHERE CAN IT BE USED?
Suitable for any structures where a complete sealing weld is not necessary. Ideal for securing anodes, anchor plates, doubler plates, patches, etc. Hammerhead can also be used in place of bolts or securing lifting lugs. Saves time on surface preparation and cleaning, as no joins are required and can even be used in poor visibility conditions, as no arc control is required; in terms of arc length, angles and travel speed, etc. the electrode is best used with our Piranha II control unit as this allows a preset sequence of current and weld cycles to control and maintain weld quality, although it is possible to use the electrodes with nothing more than standard MMA/SMAW power source, although under these circumstances the quality can reduce.
