Generally, equipment or mechanical parts are worn out by abrasion, impact, erosion, and environmental corrosion. To reduce these losses, the welding that wears the surface of the material with abrasion or corrosion resistance is called overlay welding. Corrosion and high temperature oxidation are very important factors in overlay welding material selection because they have a great effect on wear rate. Typical equipment is made of carbon steel, stainless steel or a material that is not wear resistant. Therefore, overlay welding is applied to parts where the parts themselves are subject to severe wear or corrosion. The diffusion of chlorine and alkaline ash during the combustion process causes foiling, corrosion, and erosion in the water wall panel & tube which is a heat transfer device. In order to protect the water wall panel & tube from various chemical and physical phenomena occurring during the combustion process, heat-resistant alloy steel such as Inconel is overlay welded on the outer surface of carbon steel pipe. However, since the length of the water wall panel & tube is more than 7 meters, the deformation after overlay welding is very large and the straightening work requires a lot of time and money. Also, since cooling water flows through the pipe during welding, the temperature of the cooling water also affects the welding deformation. In this study, welding process sequence and coolant temperature are optimized to minimize welding deformation during overlay welding.
