Used when welding pipe, backing rings serve as support structures behind the weld joint. Their primary purpose is to provide a clean, uniform weld on both the inside and outside of the pipe. This reinforcement helps prevent issues such as burn-through and incomplete penetration during the welding process. Additionally, backing rings help maintain the correct alignment between pipes, ensuring a precise and secure connection.
