Dear Magna Distributors,
Magna 309, a flux-cored TIG rod designed for root run applications on pipelines of austenitic stainless steel, low alloy steel, carbon steel, and their combinations in oil refineries, petrochemical / chemical plants, is approved by ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) which has been the preferred classification organization for the offshore & energy sector for decades. Recognized in over 100 countries, ABS offers practical standard and approval for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of offshore drilling and energy production units including pipelines and welding consumables. With ABS’ approval, Magna 309 is assured of its classification and physical & mechanical properties stated in the PIM by a prestigious third party.
As recommended in the marketing collaterals, Magna 309 is designed for the oil refineries, petrochemical / chemical plants and power plants which are extremely concerned with safety since failure of any repair job may be catastrophic. All repair jobs in these industries have to be carried out carefully with documented procedures and standards. Preferably or even inevitably, quality and classifications of welding consumables used for repair jobs must be well documented or written to eliminate any possible guesswork. Since Magna 309 is approved by ABS, maintenance professionals or welders in these industries can confidently choose Magna 309 to perform repair jobs according to their welding procedures or vice versa.
