SoluGap Product Information
What is it?
SoluGap is an economical, inventive solution to socket welding needs. Compatible with any metal, SoluGap provides the 1/16ʺ (1.6 mm) minimum gap required by ANSI 31.1, Section III, ASME, US Navy and Military Codes, eliminating the need for pre-measuring and guesswork. SoluGap is also available in 1/8″ (3.2 mm) thickness.
SoluGap features a unique 3-tabbed edge design that allows the spacers to remain secure in any pipe orientation. It is manufactured and comprised of Aquasol’s environmentally safe, water soluble composite board. It dissolves completely and rapidly in most liquids, allowing for easy post-weld clean up.
Where is it used?
SoluGap is used in various industries where socket welding is required. Some of these manufacturing areas include Food Processing, Pharmaceutical, Nuclear and Aeronautical, Nuclear and Power Plants, Petrochemical Plants and Refineries, Industrial Hydraulics, Water Heaters and Boilers, Railroad Air Brake Piping, Shipbuilding, Fertilizer Plants, and Breweries.
What does it do for you?
Increases Efficiency and Savings: Time and labor intensive tasks of scribing, measuring and fitting are completely eliminated. Weld accuracy is dramatically improved vs. manual processes. Eliminate and reduce cracked welds, saving money on costly repairs and replacement material.
How SoluGap works.
|1. Position ring by aligning outer edge with inner pipe circumference.
||2. Slide ring inside pipe so tabbed edges can fit snugly and snap-in-place, maintaining the 1/16" or larger gap while avoiding compression.
||3. Once secured inside the pipe, ring will stay in place, even when the socket is sideways or inverted.||4. Tack weld 3 or 4 times maintaining proper interpass temperature, as specified by ASME B31.3 or welding engineer. Square up the pipe after the first tack. Proceed to weld without exceeding interpass temperature.
