ESW is a variation of submerged arc welding. Both use granular flux for shielding. Both are older processes with unique advantages. Deoxidizers in the flux reduce oxides and produce superb welds. There is no visible arc, almost no smoke and extremely high deposition rates. ESW deposits up to 60 pounds of metal per hour, 10 times faster than MIG or TIG.
