Hyperbaric welding is the process of welding at elevated pressures, normally underwater. Hyperbaric welding can either take place wet in the water itself or dry inside a specially constructed positive pressure enclosure and hence a dry environment. It is predominantly referred to as “hyperbaric welding” when used in a dry environment, and “underwater welding” when in a wet environment.
What Is It Like Working As An Underwater Welder?
Underwater welding is an exciting and lucrative career for veterans, ex-military, and any adventure-seeking individual who desires more than just an average job. The underwater welding directly exposes the diver and electrode to the water and surrounding elements. The process is generally limited to low carbon equivalent steels, especially at greater depths, because of hydrogen-caused cracking.
