Why is preheat sometimes required before welding?

Preheating the steel to be welded slows the cooling rate in the weld area. This may be necessary to avoid cracking of the weld metal or heat affected zone. The need for preheat increases with steel thickness, weld restraint, the carbon/alloy content of the steel, and the diffusible hydrogen of the weld metal. Preheat is commonly applied with fuel gas torches or electrical resistance heaters.

The purpose of preheat

1.Reduce the risk of hydrogen cracking

2.Reduce the hardness of the weld heat affected zone

3.Reduce shrinkage stresses during cooling and improve the distribution of residual stresses.

If preheat is locally applied it must extend to at least 75mm from the weld location and be preferably measured on the opposite face to the one being welded.

Heat treatment of welded joints

Heat treatment is an operation that is both time consuming and costly. It can affect the strength and toughness of a welded joint, its corrosion resistance and the level of residual stress but is also a mandatory operation specified in many application codes and standards. In addition it is an essential variable in welding procedure qualification specifications.

Before discussing the range of heat treatments that a metal may be subjected to, there is a need to clearly define what is meant by the various terms used to describe the range of heat treatments that may be applied to a welded joint. Such terms are often used incorrectly, particularly by non-specialists; for a metallurgist they have very precise meanings
