NSRP ASE INVESTMENT: $150K
This project goal will to reduce the cost and time associated with weld and other metal removal tasks, including new construction, overhaul, maintenance, and repair operations. The WeldVac solution has the potential to reduce environmental waste and noise of the arc gouging process while also reducing fire hazards from uncontrolled slag generated by the arc gouging process. This project will also verify that WeldVac methods can produce satisfactory metal removal rates for welds and other materials in U.S. Navy and/or ABS steel and consistently meet the OSHA and other environmental regulations.
