General Welding Procedures

Jan 31, 2000, Apr 19, 2001

Most Nye products are made from QT100 (T1 Structural) and AR400 (T1Abraision Resistant) Quenched & Tempered steel plate. This extra strong heat-treated alloy steel is heat sensitive and must be treated properly during welding to prevent any unwanted hardening, softening or embrittlement due to hydrogen contamination.

Non heat-treated materials like Mild Steel, 33MAX, and 44W do not require pre-heating, but will not be harmed by it. When in doubt about the type of steel, assume it is Quenched & Tempered and follow these procedures:

Suitable (approved) electrodes:

SMAW - Stick Electrodes:

FCAW – Flux Core Wire:

Bushing Maintenance

Instructions for changing Nye retainer type bushings.

Some Nye Contractors Grapples and Concrete Pulverizers feature special hardened steel or aluminum-bronze pivot bushings that double as retainers. These retainers are designed to keep the Grapple or Pulverizer halves together when the main pin is removed during mounting and dismounting.

Installing Bushings

IMPORTANT: Read all these instructions before starting.

The bushings should be pressed in from between the bosses of the moving side of the Grapple or Pulverizer with a portable hydraulic jack. Removing Bushings

WARNING: The bushings are designed to hold the Grapple or Pulverizer halves together when the main pin is removed. The halves could move apart suddenly causing damage to property, injury or death, if the bushings are damaged or removed.
