SUSPENDERS

The bridges were rebuilt using alternate

suspender system of Freyssinet Suspenders

which are manufactured using specific

industrial processes including heat treatment

(quench and tempered) that ensures

increased mechanical characteristics.

Quenched and tempered steel is

characterized by high strength and good

Quenching and tempering consists of a two-stage heat-treatment process. Stage 1 includes hardening, in which the

electrode and the workpiece. A

blanket of powdered flux, which

generates a protective gas shield and

a slag, protects the weld zone. A

shielding gas is not required. The arc

is submerged beneath the flux

blanket and is not normally visible

during welding.
