he Ardo Weld electrical connection process is a simple, efficient method of welding copper to copper or copper to steel and no outside source of power is required while using Ardo Weld. Ardo Weld creates a molecular bond using a exothermic reaction. The reaction takes place in a semi-permanent graphite mould (Ardo Mould) that lasts for seventy or more welds if properly cared for. The Ardo Weld reaction takes place in a very few seconds, therefore, the total amount of heat applied to the conductors or surfaces is considerably less than that employed in brazing or soldering. This is an important consideration when welding to insulated cable or thin wall pipe. Ardo Weld is ideal for field use, since it is light and portable and requires no outside power source. Using Ardo Weld requires very little time or skill to obtain an efficient, maintenance free electrical cofnnection. In short, there is nothing better than this is available for joining high current carrying conductors.
Advantages of using ARDO Weld (Exothermic Weld):
Assurance of a permanent welding and a low resistance connection, essential for ensuring hardwearing and enduring benefits in earthing.
Excellent corrosion resistance - resistant to galvanic corrosion, no degradation over time
Superior electrical conductivity than that of the conductors themselves
Higher mechanical strength than that of the conductors themselves
Permanent molecular bond - will not loosen or corrode
Capacity to withstand repeated electrical discharges
Capacity to withstand repeated faults
Welding of different metals possible
Visual checking of quality possible
Low labour costs
Exothermic weld is recommended by learned engineers and power sector bodies and is made mandatory for joining high current carrying conductors.
