ESAB Introduces New Larger Packaging for Submerged Arc Welding Wire & Fluxes

Share Article

New EcoCoil and BigBag packaging contain more wire and flux for increased productivity with less downtime to change wire spools and flux bags.

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduces two new packaging formats for its popular submerged arc welding wires and fluxes.

The EcoCoil is a new economical and eco-friendly bulk package for submerged arc welding wire. Designed for high production applications, the EcoCoil contains 2200 lbs of wire random-wound in a one-way coil around a cardboard former. All materials are fully recyclable and there is no need to return empty spools or stems. The wire is wrapped from bottom to top, providing protection from moisture and dust during transport and allowing the overwrap to be partially removed at the top. The bottom stays wrapped for continued protection. The upper end of the wire is guided inside the cardboard former for easy material inspection on site. PET strips with four lifting eyelets are provided to lift the spool into place. PET strips are safer for workers than steel strips.

The BigBag is a new economical way to deliver flux for high production submerged arc welding applications. The BigBag contains 2200 lbs of flux and consists of a woven polypropylene bag with a polyethylene inlay to prevent moisture pick-up from the surrounding atmosphere. Secondary protection is also provided during transport with a foil wrap on each complete flux pallet. This packing material is fully recyclable and environmentally friendly. BigBags feature a well-defined discharge spout that can be closed during the flux flow, allowing customers to remove only a small portion of flux at a time. Complete discharge of the flux can be accomplished in 25 seconds.
