set @sec=7612
select convert(varchar(10), dateadd(second, @sec, 0) , 8)

Is this what you mean:
DECLARE @Seconds integer
SET @Seconds = 12345

SELECT CAST(@Seconds / 3600 AS varchar(10)) + ':' + CAST(@Seconds % 3600 AS varchar(10))

Open in new window

assuming the number is less than 100 hours worth....
this is the general formula

select right('0'+convert(varchar(2),hrs,2)
 (select hrs,rem/60 as mins, rem % 60 as secs from  
  (Select @seconds/3600 as Hrs, @seconds % 3600 as rem) as x
 ) as y
