STRESS RELIEF/ POST WELD HEAT TREAT
Post Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT), or stress relief as it is sometimes known, is a method for reducing and redistributing the residual stresses in the material that have been introduced by welding
The necessity for PWHT depends on the material and the service requirements. Other factors that influence the need for PWHT are the welding parameters and the likely mechanism of failure. In some standards, PWHT is mandatory for certain grades or thicknesses.
MSM maintains 3 PWHT ovens to give us better control and lead time of all the processes.
