What are Precautions while handling Electrodes ?

  • The electrode holder should be isolated from the current supply before changing electrodes because some electrode coatings have extremely low resistance.
  • When welding operations is completed or temporarily suspended, the electrode should be removed from the holder.
  • Hot electrode ends should be disposed in a suitable container; they should not be handled with bare hands.
  • Spare electrodes should be kept dry in a container until required for use.
