As pipelines look for ways to reduce weight while pumping more material through, pipelines are transitioning to high strength steels such as X80, X90 and X100

Advances in Self-Shielded Flux Cored welding (FCAW-S) wire and equipment have made it an increasingly viable option in manual pipeline welding applications compared to Stick welding (SMAW).

Miller's Big Blue®  350 PipePro®  System is an optimized Self-Shielded Flux Cored welding system designed specifically for pipeline welding applications.

Flux Cored guns have been made substantially lighter and more ergonomically friendly than past models. Advances to guns such as the Bernard PipePro® Dura-Flux™ gun include internal trigger leads that won’t get caught on surrounding equipment, replaceable liners, and improved visibility to the weld puddle. Most importantly, the dual schedule functionality gives welders the opportunity to adjust wire feed speed right at the gun. Consumables (contact tips, etc.) are now also much more reliable and much easier to change out than older models.
