Preheat : QW 492 or QW 108

preheating is temperature that should be maintained prior to any welding

150C max for duplex stainless and nickel based

315C max. for carbon and alloy steels
176C max for stainless,

Inter-pass temperature

Interpass temperature refers to the temperature of the steel just prior to the
depositing of an additional weld pass. It is identical to preheat, except that
preheating is performed prior to any welding.

For Carbon & Chrome-moly steels - 300 to 350 C max

For Stainless Steel - 175 C max
For Nickel Alloys - 150 C max
For super-austenitic steels - 98C max
