Description

Upgrade your socket welding process with the revolutionary Aquasol SoluGap Water Soluble Socket Weld Spacer Ring. This innovative product eliminates the need for pre-measuring and guesswork, ensuring consistent and reliable welds every time. Crafted from environmentally friendly, water-soluble composite material, SoluGap dissolves completely after welding, leaving behind a clean and flawless joint.

Features

  • Maintains Precise Gap: SoluGap provides the crucial 1/16″ (1.6 mm) gap required for proper socket weld alignment, preventing cracking and loss of weld integrity
  • Eliminates Pre-Measuring: Say goodbye to time-consuming measurements and guesswork. SoluGap simplifies the process, guaranteeing consistent weld gaps
  • Easy Installation: Simply insert SoluGap into the socket weld fitting before welding. No tools or additional steps required
  • Clean Removal: After welding, SoluGap dissolves entirely in most liquids, allowing for effortless post-weld clean-up
  • Environmentally Friendly: Made from water-soluble composite material, SoluGap is an eco-conscious choice for your welding needs

Applications

  • Food Processing: Maintain sanitary standards with clean, precise welds in food processing equipment
  • Pharmaceutical: Ensure the integrity of pharmaceutical pipelines with consistent and reliable welds
  • Nuclear and Aeronautical: Meet stringent safety requirements with high-quality welds in critical applications
  • Petrochemical Plants and Refineries: Enhance safety and efficiency in petrochemical environments with reliable welds
  • Industrial Hydraulics: Ensure fluid flow and system integrity with consistent weld gaps in hydraulic systems
  • Water Heaters and Boilers: Maintain the integrity of water heating and boiler systems with reliable welds

  • Fertiliser Plants: Maintain the integrity of fertiliser production and storage systems with clean and strong welds
  • Breweries: Ensure the quality and consistency of beer production with reliable welds in brewing equipment

Instructions

  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.
  5. Square up the pipe after the first tack.
  6. Proceed to weld without exceeding interpass temperature.
  7. Introduce hot or cold water to dissolve and remove its entire contents, leaving no residue in the pipe or if preferred, simply leave the spacer in the pipe as no adverse effects will result.
