Local Sourcing of Raw Materials for the Manufacture of Manual Metal Arcwelding Electrode: A Case for Locally Produced Steelwire in Nigeria

  • Type:Project
  • Pages:4
  • Format:Microsoft Word
(Industrial And Production Engineering Project Topics & Materials)

ABSTRACT

Since early 1995 when pressure was mounted on the Raw Materials Research and development council in Nigeria, with a  view to sourcing wire, flux and binder locally, little or no success has been recorded. As at 1998,allthe raw materials including core wire for electrode manufacture in Nigeria were still being imported. The aim of this project is therefore to explore the possibility of using locally sourced wire in electrode production. In this research, wire drawn at the Oshogbo rolling company in south western Nigeria from billets produced at Delta Steel Company Aladja in Delta state, Nigeria was used with commercial flux in a production run by a local electrode manufacturing outfit. Mechanical tests and microstructure show that the quality of electrodes produced compared favourably with E6010 standards

    ABSTRACT The performance of the oils selected in this work was tested for considering Viscosity, Viscosity Index, Density, Flash Point, Pour Point, and Carbon Residue. The most important of all the properties which makes the oil protect against wear is viscosity that helps to reduce friction between moving parts in the engine. The Viscosities of... Continue Reading
