The use of thoriated tungsten electrodes TWI

IntroductionHazardsSafe Working ConditionsAlternatives to Thoriated TungstenOfficial GuidelinesRecommended ReadingTungsten electrodes are used when arc welding with the Tungsten Inert gas (TIG) process or when plasma welding. In both processes the electrode, arc and weld pool are protected from atmospheric contamination by an inert gas. A tungsten electrode is used because it can withstand very high temperatures with minimal melting or erosion. Electrodes are made by powder metallurgy and are formed to size after sintering.TIG welding electrodes usually contain small quantities of other metallic oxides w...

Guidelines for tungsten electrodes The FABRICATOR

Thoriated tungsten electrodes (AWS classification EWTh-2) contain a minimum of 97.30 percent tungsten and 1.70 to 2.20 percent thorium and are called 2 percent thoriated. They are the most commonly used electrodes today and are preferred for their longevity and ease of use.
