Underwater Arc Cutting And Welding Equipment 41 Introduction

This chapter presents information concerning underwater cutting and welding technology and the equipment necessary to conduct such operations. Included are discussions on the required equipment and equipment set up procedures. This information will be particularly useful during the planning and staging phase of an operation. Because no two underwater operations are exactly the same, each must be regarded as unique. The planning, preparation and execution of the underwater cutting or welding operation must be carefully worked out for each job. To aid in planning operations, tables listing the recommended equipment for a particular job, commercial vendor information and appropriate specifications are included. Only approved equipment shall be used, except in exceptional situations (see Appendix E).
