Weld Repair Capabilities

Abbfab Services are now able to offer a weld repair service for castings in a variety of materials.

The repairs can take the form of the building up with metal of badly eroded or worn areas of valve seats as well as the building up of damaged flange faces, allowing the re-machining of the component, this is a cost effective means of repair as compared to sourcing a new casting with all the attendant machining costs, in the case of a weld build-up, the only machining costs are typically to the welded areas. In some cases, this may be the only cost effective solution were a replacement component is not available and the cost of a new casting would be prohibitive.

All repairs are subject to a minimum of dye penetrant or magnetic particle examination, however, should the client request it, radiography is an option.

Amongst the items suitable for weld repair are:

  •     Eroded valve seats.
  •     Eroded valve bodies.
  •     Damaged flange faces.
  •     Eroded / damaged turbine blades.
  •     Pump impellers.
