The Ransome Automatic Girth Welder (AGW) (or 3 O’clock Welder) performs x-ray quality
horizontal welds up to 20 times faster than standard manual techniques.
Operating at speeds from 4 inches to 105 inches per minute, the AGW can handle plates as
thick as 2 inches and tank diameters from the largest to as small as 30 feet. The adjustable
A-frame telescopes manually to handle 6 feet to 10 feet high steel plates. Ergonomically
designed for efficiency, convenience, and accessibility.
The AGW Automatic Girth Welder is available as a single-sided or dual-sided mobile
welding station completely equipped with welding heads, all controls, flux support belts and
flux recovery units and welding power source. The AGW straddles the tank shell plates,
riding on serrated steel drive wheels that can be adjusted for tank diameter. The AGW
operator platform is a sturdy and solid workstation with guardrails and all-weather curtains for
operator safety and comfort.
