Atomic hydrogen welding

Speciality Welds : 04 November, 2006  (New Product)
My job often involves working on interesting and unusual welding related projects and can take me to many a far-flung corner of the world. One such welding project involved a welding process you may have never even heard of, and I will confess, up to a few years ago I was only aware of it in books. The process is called Atomic Hydrogen.
My job often involves working on interesting and unusual welding related projects and can take me to many a far-flung corner of the world. One such welding project involved a welding process you may have never even heard of, and I will confess, up to a few years ago I was only aware of it in books. The process is called Atomic Hydrogen.

A client of mine for many years, part of the BDC Group, is involved with welding and repairing lifting chains and continues to use this welding process, even today, because it offers a perfect solution for his application. Although, I am aware that they are on their last machine, after robbing parts from all their other machines for some time now.

This is not just a nostalgic, historical look about a welding process that has all but passed us by, but more to show you a process that was common place in the 1930ís, and even today offers the best solution to a welding problem, in this case, welding of lifting chains.

It is true I wanted to provide some information, for those of you whom are interested, and shoot some video footage, as I am acutely aware that when their welder retires, this may be the end for this process, at least for me, and it is most unlikely I shall ever come across the use of Atomic Hydrogen welding in a commercial environment ever again.
