Image Troy, OH – To meet the challenges of tough boiler tube repairs and minimize weld rejects on these critical applications, Hobart Brothers developed its Hobart Boilermaker family of low alloy stick electrodes. The family, which includes Boilermaker 18 (AWS E7018, E7018-1), Boilermaker 18A1 (E7018-A1), Boilermaker B2 (E8018-B2) and Boilermaker B3 (E9018-B3) stick electrodes, has been specially formulated to provide X-ray quality welds with no starting or stopping porosity.
