To preserve its desirable properties, stainless-clad plate can be welded by either of the two following methods, depending on plate thickness and service conditions:
♦ the unclad sides of the plate sections are beveled and welded with carbon or low alloy steel filler metal. A portion of the stainless steel cladding is removed from the back of the joint and stainless steel filler metal is deposited.
♦ the entire thickness of the stainless-clad plate is welded with stainless steel filler metal.
When the nonstainless portion of the plate is comparatively thick, as in most pressure vessel applications, it is more economical to use the first method.
