Welding Inserts

Arcos and Electric Boat Division designed the Consumable Weld Insert. Since then, millions of feet and preformed rings have been used by the U.S. Navy for the construction of our nuclear fleet. Consumable inserts provide the highest quality root pass for welds that require radiography. With this proven reliability, they have gained acceptance throughout the commercial industries as well.

Preformed fitted rings are furnished in standard pipe schedules with an overlap. These rings are designated Style B in the Military and AWS specifications. Split rings, Style C, are supplied with tolerances to fit special customer requirements.

Arcos Consumable Insert material can also be furnished in standard 50-foot lengths wound on a 12-inch rim, packed in a sturdy cardboard container for easy storage and identification. Insert coils are designated Style A in accordance with the AWS and Military specifications.

Arcos inserts are available in all grades of stainless steel, nickel alloys, carbon steel and chrome moly. Most other alloys may be made into consumable weld inserts in ring form or continuous footage on coils.
