Exothermic Joint

Exothermic Joint, also known as exothermic bonding, thermite welding (TW), and Thermit welding. There are many advantages of using Exothermic Joint. The most important one being that the process produces a molecular joint and not just a mechanical one in between the conductors. It is produced through a starting reactant which provides enough energy to activate the welding reaction. This takes place quickly and safely inside a graphite mould. The mould is designed specifically for a certain union depending on the elements to be welded and the joint type required. We guarantees all types of joints, not only copper cable unions but also to weld tapes, brass metallic pieces, stainless steel, steel ground rods covered with copper, etc. It is especially useful for joining dissimilar metals. Amiable Impex was the first Company in Mumbai to introduce and supply Exothermic Joint and Accessories. AI-Weld Exothermic welded electrical connections supply from us will never loosen, corrode or increase in resistance. We are one of the largest importer of Exothermic Joint in India. Due to our Superior and Best Quality we are able to sell our product to Railways Contractors, Rail Metro, Telecommunications, Earthing and Lightning Installers Industries, as well as to Electrical Suppliers etc.

What does Exothermic Joint means? Exothermic Joint System is a very effective and cost efficient method of making electrical connections in high quality which includes Large Connection or Small Connection. It is a simple self-contained system that uses the high temperature reaction of powdered copper oxide, aluminium and other required chemical and materials, within a mould to form permanent electrical connections. For more details please visit our website: Features of Exothermic Joint: Superior electrical conductivity to the conductors themselves. Does not corrode, oxidize or degrade with time and is resistant to galvanic coupling. Able to withstand repeated electrical discharges. Never increases its resistance. Has greater mechanical and squeezing resistance than the conductors themselves.

What and Which Metal can be Weld through Exothermic Joint ? The process of Exothermic Joint is a method of making electrical connections from Copper to Copper or Copper to Steel and it can join any Metals to Metals like Bronze, Galvanized metals and Stainless steel etc , in which no outside source of heat or power is required. What are the Accessories Requires for Exothermic Joint Joints? 1) Graphite Mould 2) Exothermic Joint 3) Steel Disc 4) Ignite Powder / Starting Powder 5) Cleaning Brush Set (Soft, Hard and File Card Brush) 6) Flame Torch 7) Mould Handle 8) Hand Gloves 9) Flint Gun 10) Sealing Compound For more details please visit our website:

What is the Process for Exothermic Joint OR How the Metal is Welded by Exothermic Joint ? In Exothermic Joint Process, the following are the steps Step 1 - The two conductors that is to be joined are placed in the weld cavity and than the steel disc is located in the base of the crucible in the Graphite Mould. Step 2 - After the disc is placed in the Mould, AI-Weld Exothermic Joint Material is poured down into Graphite Mould followed by Starting Powder Step 3 - Some Ignite Powder should also be sparkled on the Mouth of Mould and than ignited by Flint Gun. The process of igniting the particles creates extremely high heat i.e upto 1400 degree Celcius and produces Exothermic Reaction which also melts the Steel Disc and then the Exothermic Joint flows into the weld cavity thus filling any available space and completes the weld. In weld cavity the molten copper alloy partially melts the conductors. The molten copper alloy gets cooled and forms a fusion weld which solidify before it is removed from the mould. This entire process takes only upto 10 to 15 seconds to complete. Then the mould is ready for the next weld after a brief cleaning with a brush. Exothermic welded connections produce a permanent connection, superior in performance to any known mechanical or pressure type surface-to-surface contact connector. Due to the fact that the connection produced is a molecular bond so an exothermic welded connection will not loosen and there will be increase in resistance over the lifetime of the installation.

Overview: In Exothermic Joint, aluminium dust reduces the oxide of another metal, most commonly iron oxide, because aluminium is highly reactive. Iron(III) oxide is commonly used: Fe2O3 + 2 Al 2 Fe + Al2O3 The products are aluminium oxide, free elemental iron, and a large amount of heat. The reactants are commonly powdered and mixed with a binder to keep the material solid and prevent separation. Commonly the reacting composition is 5 parts iron oxide red (rust) powder and 3 parts aluminium powder by weight, ignited at high temperatures. A strongly exothermic (heat-generating) reaction occurs that via reduction and oxidation produces a white hot mass of molten iron and a slag of refractory aluminium oxide. The molten iron is the actual welding material; the aluminium oxide is much less dense than the liquid iron and so floats to the top of the reaction, so the set-up for welding must take into account that the actual molten metal is at the bottom of the crucible and covered by floating slag. Other metal oxides can be used, such as chromium oxide, to generate the given metal in its elemental form. Copper thermite, using copper oxide, is used for creating electric joints in a process called cadwelding: 3 CuO + 2 Al 3 Cu + Al2O3 Thermite welding is widely used to weld railway rails. The weld quality of chemically pure thermite is low due to the low heat penetration into the joining metals and the very low carbon and alloy content in the nearly pure molten iron. To obtain sound railroad welds, the ends of the rails being thermite welded are preheated with a torch to an orange heat, to ensure the molten steel is not chilled during the pour. Because the thermite reaction yields relatively pure iron, not the much stronger steel, some small pellets or rods of high-carbon alloying metal are included in the thermite mix; these alloying materials melt from the heat of the thermite reaction and mix into the weld metal. The alloying beads composition will vary, according to the rail alloy being welded.
