  • Preventing Scaling Caused by Hard Water Improves Productivity

    Water cooled spot welders need very efficient cooling systems to ensure that they operate effectively.  The problem is that very often the water cooling of the welding tips is performed by hard water containing  calcium carbonate   ( limescale)   which can form a scale and that scale in turn acts as an insulator causing inefficient cooling of the tips. A major ...
