Cladding by plasma transferred arc (PTA) welding is widely used for enhancing the surface properties of a metallic component, in particular wear, high temperature and corrosion resistances. This paper presents the application of Kennametal Stellite PTA cladding technology, especially the DuraStell PTA process technique, for tungsten carbide composite cladding for boiler tube application. DuraStell PTA process gives low heat input to the substrate and fast deposition rate. The cladded boiler tube samples showed more uniform carbide dispersion in the cladding, less base metal dilution, and insignificant effect on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the substrate base metal, in comparison of the traditional PTA and other arc welding process.
