Weld Quality Matters

By October 24, 2022 November 1st, 2022 Blog, Services
One of the most common misconceptions EBI encounters when discussing the importance of weld quality with clients is the assumption that ‘a weld is a weld’ and they are all created equal. However, electricity rides across a bus duct enclosure just the same as the conductor. As such, having a good quality weld is essential in providing a smooth transition of power. Inadequate or non-existent aluminum bus duct welds lack proper fusion; causing porosity, surface irregularity, and discontinuity which can cause a disruption in electricity flow; putting the entire system, and those around it, at risk. These critical inconsistencies can be catastrophic if not detected and properly repaired.
EBI has a rigorous in-house Bus Duct Technician training program, which includes teaching our welders proper inspection techniques. This, coupled with our in-house Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI) who provide invaluable support, training, and guidance to ensure exceptional weld quality, workmanship, and conformance to specifications, sets EBI apart. Our highly skilled team and their devotion to delivering quality craftsmanship during each and every project are one of the key reasons we have been industry leaders for nearly 50 years.
