  • Patent number: 10421145
    Abstract: Provided is a method for producing a circumferential weld joint. With this method, when low-carbon martensitic stainless steel pipes used for pipelines for transportation of petroleum and natural gas are subjected to circumferential welding, the circumferential welding can be performed efficiently using a low-cost welding material having a composition similar to the composition of the low-carbon martensitic stainless steel pipes. Pipe ends of low-carbon martensitic stainless steel pipes containing prescribed components are butted against each other and subjected to multi-pass arc welding using a welding material containing prescribed components. In the first pass in the multi-pass arc welding, CMT welding is performed in which the welding material is moved back and forth against a molten pool to generate an arc intermittently. In the second and subsequent passes, one selected from GMA welding, GTA welding, and the CMT welding is performed.

  • Patent number: 6846371
    Abstract: A method of producing a high-strength high-toughness martensitic stainless steel seamless pipe which includes heating a martensitic stainless steel raw material to an austenitic range and subjecting the raw material to piercing and elongating to form an original pipe. The original pipe is cooled to form a structure substantially composed of martensite in the original pipe. The original pipe is reheated to a temperature in the dual-phase range between the Ac1 transformation point and the Ac3 transformation point, and is subjected to finishing rolling at an initial rolling temperature T (° C.) between the Ac1 transformation point and the Ac3 transformation point. The original pipe is then cooled to form a processed pipe. The processed pipe is tempered at a temperature below the Ac1 transformation point. The reduction in area R in the finishing rolling step may be in the range of 10% to 90%, and the initial rolling temperature T and the reduction in area R may satisfy the relationship 800?T?0.625R?850.
