Benefits of Claxton’s surface friction stud welding attachment technology include:

  • Excellent fatigue life performance of stud welds
  • Friction welds are higher strength than other means of joining
  • The process is quick and highly repeatable
  • Extremely low resistance characteristics
  • Subsea anode retrofit using friction welding is 50% lower in cost than impressed-cathodic protection retrofit
  • Welding can be performed in Zone 2 Areas without the requirement to build habitats
  • Typically 45% lower in cost than electric arc welding
  • No stray currents that could damage electrical equipment and control system
  • A fully ROV installed galvanic anode retrofit solution
  • Environmentally friendly process – no objectionable smoke, fumes or gases, or weld spatter, hence extremely safe conditions
  • Autogenic – no filler material used, the process solely relies on inter-molecular bonding with the original material
  • Dissimilar metals can be joined with no alloying of the metals.
