Weld Overlaid Tube Announcement

01/04/2020
For over 10 years DTEC Engineering have been manufacturing the proprietary Vclad® weld overlaid boiler tube, this product has been used extensively in waste to energy, biomass, and fossil fuelled power plants throughout the UK and Europe.

We are now pleased to announce production has commenced with the next generation of weld overlaid tube, Vclad® CMT. Our weld overlaid tube is now produced using Cold Metal Transfer (CMT) advanced welding technology, resulting in lower alloy dilution, and improved surface finish.

Our facility operates two Vclad® CMT machines with a capacity to suit typical boiler tube diameters 38mm – 76.1 mm, but with the capability to accommodate tubes up to 220 mm diameter, therefore providing opportunity to weld overlay header and collector bodies prior to fabrication. Diameters less than 38 mm can also be weld overlaid, therefore providing a fully encompassed tube range for all boiler designs and applications.
