High Pressure Welding
The system in your home operates under a lot of pressure. If you don’t believe that it does, cut a hole in a pipe in your basement and see how powerful the stream is coming out.
The system is under high-pressure and it needs to be installed in such a way that the high pressure water isn’t going to come out. As a result, you need to use high-pressure welding to ensure that the pipes are connected properly, with no worry that there is going to be a leak.
High-pressure welding is not something that anyone can do, and it should only be done by a professional.
Welding high-pressure systems is not the same as welding other systems, and individuals need to be trained in order to do it properly.
In plumbing today, there are three main types of welding that is conducted. The first is brazing, the second is bronze welding and the third is fusion welding. Today, the most common way to weld is through high-pressure welding equipment that is combined with oxygen and acetylene.
Whether it is pipes, boilers, radiators, water heaters or anything else related to plumbing and water, having someone who is skilled with high-pressure welding is very important in any plumbing job.
