OJSC «TEKhPROM» 57 Gilyarovsky Str., 107966, Moscow, Russia. E-mail:
The industrial experience on development of requirements to the analysis of granulometric composition of consumables, applied in the electrode coatings was described. The importance of selecting the method of analysis and the applied equipment was noted. The conclusion on importance of unification of analysis procedures at the manufacturers of consumables and suppliers of powders was made. 8 Ref., 3 Tables.
Keywords: arc welding, coated electrodes, production of electrodes, dry charge, powders, granulometric composition, control
