Our pressure vessel specifications currently do not allow use of FCAW on any pressure components. Normally our suppliers use SMAW for the nozzle installations. This adds considerable cost to our fabrication. Is there a history with FCAW in pressure vessel welding that led to its banishment from use? What can go wrong if we allow its use?
