What is root and hot pass in welding?
A root bead and hot pass are generally the minimum amount of weld that must be done before the crane / side boom etc can be released and the weld can then be left to completely cool and be filled and capped at a later time / date.
What is the difference between root pass and hot pass?
The Hot pass is a technique which helps resurface the root pass, and make it usable without a lot of grinding and clean -up of the weld. Some welders employ the hot pass over the root pass every time, whether it needs it or not, which typically won’t hurt anything if it is done correctly.
What is the best welding rod for a root pass?
E6010 Welding Electrode The E6010 is one of the most common sticks used in industry. It is an all-position, DC-only rod. It is well-known for its deep penetration, which is why it is widely used for root pass welds. Its deep penetration and fast-freeing cellulose flux make it a prime choice for stove pipe welding.
What is the purpose of a root pass in welding?
Root Pass – The first weld bead placed in the weld joint in a multi-pass weld. Fill – Also referred to as a fill pass, it is the amount of weld bead necessary to fill the weld joint. This pass comes after the root pass and before the cap pass (see next). In some applications, multiple fill passes are necessary.
Why root pass is important?
The root pass consists of the first weld bead deposited in a groove. Deposition of a root pass requires a greater ability of the welder, since it must guarantee penetration, consistently and without perforations. The aspect and quality of a root pass are dependent of the forces that act directly on the weld pool.

What is the best pipe welding machine for 6010 root pass?
Pipeliners and rig welders often swear by the old lincoln sa200 redface machines and even particular years and models are reported to make a huge difference for 6010 root pass welding. Thats all fine, but most often, when you go to take a pipe welding test, you are required to use whatever machine the test facility provides.
Why do they use the 6010 for butt welding?
Yes, the 6010 freezes faster. It also burns at a lower temp, so it’s easier to weld with it on an open butt weld joint. This is why I think they use it…but others may have more info on it. I like to run a 3/32″ gap and use a 1/8″ rod. I push the rod in the keyhole far enough that very few sparks come out on me.
Can You Weld downhill on the 6010 or 7018?
Both the 6010 root pass and the 7018 fill and cover pass are uphill and welding anything downhill on this test is grounds for failure. Enjoy this page? Please pay it forward.
What is the best way to control the arc of 6010 rods?
Some machines have arc control also known as the “dig” function and for 6010 rods, the manufacturer recommends setting the arc force or dig high. But I found that setting the arc force on high did not always work best.
