DRIVERS AND TRENDS
Higher steel grades and bigger wall thicknesses are an important challenges of today's pipe welding.. Even if X80 is typical in most pipe mills, X100 and X120 are gaining momentum.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
Pipes are usually continuously tack welded, with the buried arc process (GMAW), and afterwards submerged arc welded with one or multi layers on the inside and outside.

Highest repeatability at lowest defect rate is essential to pipe production. Therefore, quality control is an important factor for this industry. Matching the material properties requires optimized flux and wire combinations, as well as welding procedures matching the heat input. Details of quality requirements vary, depending on the type of pipe (spiral or longitudinal), and the usage (water pipeline, construction pipe or gas/oil pipeline), but a quality higher than grade B of ISO5817 is important to most applications.
