Underwater Welding

Underwater welding is a specialised welding process that is used to join metal underwater. It is a challenging process due to the underwater environment, which can cause corrosion, water contamination, and electrical hazards. Underwater welders use a variety of tools and techniques, including gouging, cutting, torches, and electrodes. The specific tools and techniques used will vary depending on the underwater welding application.
