When welding titanium or nickel alloy parts, it is important that the welding zone is purged of oxygen to a level as low as 10 parts per million (ppm).

Flexible Welding Enclosures® are available for a fraction of the cost of a rigid welding chamber, providing a technically viable option to the very expensive rigid metal chambers. Size for size, these Enclosures cost considerably less than a metal glove box or a vacuum system, with a very fast purging time down to a few ppm of oxygen. The Welding Enclosures are ideal for small production quantities of items that need total gas coverage as well as single large items with critical joints.

A combination of translucent material and optically clear sheet is used depending on the viewing requirements of the customer. Large access zips are fitted to each Enclosure and additional entry points can be provided for operators' gloves. A service panel incorporates access ports for welding torches, electrical leads and water-cooling supplies and a purge gas entry port and exhaust valve are also manufactured as standard to vent displaced gas into the atmosphere.

Flexible Welding Enclosures® are used by companies such as British Airways, Airbus, Pratt and Whitney, Lufthansa, Senior Engineering and Shapes Aerospace International along with many other companies in the Aerospace field and many other Industries such as Titanium Bicycle Manufacturing Companies.

Operator comfort and ease of use versus the disagreeable conditions found with a rigid plastic or metal chamber make the flexible versions a big hit with welding personnel. The manufacturers of these Flexible Enclosures are Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® along with their technically trained Worldwide Exclusive Distributor Network.

HFT® have over 40 years experience in the weld purging field especially with respect to titanium and nickel alloys, which are widely used in the Aerospace Industry and need to be purged down to the lowest levels of moisture and oxygen when welding to ensure the maximum corrosion resistance and the minimum of defects that are caused by the presence of moisture and oxygen.

With the technical knowledge and dedicated support of HFT® and their Network of Exclusive Distributors, any company purchasing a Flexible Enclosure will be up and running in the fastest possible time.

Shapes Aerospace have quoted: “We use our Argweld® Flexible Welding Enclosure® along with the PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitor® everyday for our titanium welding. They are built to last!"

Ron Sewell, Chairman for Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® said: “There are many requirements for welding zones to be purged of oxygen down to as low as 10 ppm, which can be a problem when companies see the high costs of traditional metal chambers. Our Flexible Welding Enclosures® are an ideal solution.”

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® has spearheaded a drive to design systems specifically for the Welding Industry. The company has been at the forefront in developing these Enclosures for many years and has exploited the opportunities offered by advanced engineering polymers.

Special Flexible Welding Enclosures® can be designed and manufactured to suit any purpose. HFT® has recently manufactured systems for complete robot manufacturing cells and for laser additive manufacturing applications.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have a Worldwide Exclusive Distributor network, which can be found at www.huntingdonfusion.com.

Low Cost Monitor for Welding Titanium and Stainless Steel

Titanium and stainless steel are both reactive alloys. When they are heated during the welding process, they will react with any air that is present, causing oxidation, which can lead to a loss of corrosion resistance properties. Shielding the metal with an inert gas is therefore crucial and one wa ...

Accurately Measure the Dew Point During Purging

During purging welders need to measure the oxygen content but also need to measure the ‘dew point'. The dewpoint is the temperature where condensation begins and water will condense on the material being welded. This can affect the weld properties significantly.

Pipe Purging Monitor

What is Weld Purging? Weld Purging is the displacement of oxygen by an inert gas (usually argon) from the vicinity of a weld, before, during and after welding. It is crucial to displace the oxygen when welding many metals to help achieve oxide free, zero colour welds with no loss of corrosion resis ...
