QuickPurge® for Weld Purging Large Diameter Pipework


Weld Purging large diameter pipework made from stainless, duplex and chrome steels, titanium or zirconium can be expensive, with requirements to have the oxygen level well below 100 ppm during the welding cycle. 

As it is not cost effective to completely fill pipework with expensive inert gas, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have developed QuickPurge® Systems to dramatically reduce the space that needs to be purged. 

Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “Welders can often spend up to half a day purging pipes, which will cost a considerable amount in time and gas costs. With the help of QuickPurge®, large diameter pipes can be purged down to 100 ppm ready for welding in just a short time. The dramatic savings in time and argon pay for the system in just one weld!”

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques, HFT®'s innovative design of the reusable QuickPurge® Systems means that zero colour welds will be achieved and there will be no loss of corrosion resistance caused by oxidation.

QuickPurge® has an additional gas input line, which means extra purge gas can be introduced for applications such as this, thereby achieving a much faster purge, down to the lowest oxygen levels, which is perfect for larger diameter pipes where quality welds are required.

All systems are manufactured as standard with a hose for connecting a Weld Purge Monitor® to, which can read oxygen levels down to as low as 10 ppm depending on the model.

For pre-heated chrome steel and high strength stainless steel pipe joints, HFT® design and manufactures the HotPurge® range for a higher and longer temperature exposure.

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 ...
