The Light Weight Automatic Girth Welder (AGW-LW) is an automatic system that speeds up construction of thin walled field-erected storage tanks.

It straddles the shell plates riding on adjustable flanged wheels at operator controlled speeds of 4 to 105 IPM (.10—2.67 M/min). It can handle plates as thin as 3/16 inches and tank diameters down to 12’. Equipped with welding head, controls, flux support belts and recovery unit for 3 o’clock welding.

Standard controls and welding head, straightener and 50 bs. (22.7Kg) wire reel included. The adjustable submerged arc flux belt mechanism ensures retention of the flux at the joint, and efficient recycling of flux.
