Temper Bead Procedure

This is one of Dynacorp’s foremost advantages – and it represents time and money savings for any asset owner with pressure vessels that need repair or modification.

Pressure vessel welding typically requires post-weld heat-treating. This costly step often makes it cost-prohibitive to salvage a used pressure vessel, especially a larger one, for re-use. That forces the asset owner to commission an even more expensive new build – then often wait months for delivery.

Dynacorp’s temper bead procedure can avoid all that. This ABSA-certified procedure comprises pre-heating the metal surrounding the area to be welded to 350° F. Welding – such as a repair or addition of new nozzles – then proceeds and the result can be certified for use without post-weld heat-treating.

The benefits are substantial:

  • Much faster turnarounds – We can save you days of money-wasting downtime;
  • Much lower costs – Our process could save you enough to make the difference between re-using a large pressure vessel and having to pay for a new build; and
  • Flexibility – The temper bead welding procedure covers significant repairs and modifications.
