Welding & Cladding

BRÜCK® offers, based on its slogan - Key Solutions in Steel -, cladding of forgings and structural welding of complex components.

Experiences in the following areas:

  •          Oil and gas industry (onshore/offshore)
  •          Machine construction
  •          (Heavy) plant construction and engineering
  •          Chemical industry
  •           Pipeline and pressure vessel construction
  •           Pharmaceutical industry
  •           Power plant construction

Through our long years of experience, combined with state-of-the-art production and testing methods we are capable of processing the following materials

  • Carbon Steels
  • Low Alloy Steels
  • High-strength Carbon Steel (Ceq up to 0.96)
  • Austenitic Stainless Steels
  • Martensitic Stainless Steels
  • Duplex Stainless Steels
  • Super Duplex Stainless Steels
  • Non-ferrous Metals and Nickel Alloys

To this end, BRÜCK® uses the following welding techniques:

  • Shield Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) (electrode)
  • Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW)
  • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) with cold or hot wire
  • Submerged Arc Welding (SAW)
  • Electroslag Welding (ESW)

Welding Process – Cladding

BRÜCK® takes on the weld cladding of flanges, rings and other forgings, including all downstream work.

Through the hard-facing overlay with special alloys a variety of different properties can be obtained. It is possible to produce heavy-duty layers that shall not be damaged by extreme surface forces (e.g. mill rollers) nor by hard impact. Cladding can also provide additional protection against abrasive wear.

Through the corrosion resistant cladding, an optimum resistance against chemical corrosion is ensured. Hereby, we also meet the strict hardness requirements of the NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) Standard (e.g. MR0175).

Besides the cladding of outer contours, we have extensive experience in the cladding of bore holes. Pipes and bore holes can be cladded on the inside, with diameters from 50 mm upwards and to 2,000 mm depth (with accessibility from both sides, up to 4,000 mm depth), when using continuous rotators;.

If adequate access is given, BRÜCK® is capable to clad 'Elbows’ and 'Bore-to-Bore' connections.
