Low Cost one-way Valve for specific flow rate and pressure

This low cost accessory has been designed and constructed to pass a maximum of 7.5 litres/min and 0.5 bar pressure.

Other versions of 1bar and above are also available.

Designated “PurgeGate®”, this nifty, hi-tech item has applications in both fluid and gas control. Its small size and low weight makes it valuable for small liquid dispensing machines, as well as large ones with multiple heads, where higher pressures and flow rates might be used to cater for the output of a multi-head machine.

PurgeGate® has found valuable applications in the Welding Industry, where inflatable devices are used for Weld Purging of tubes and pipes.

Setting flow rates and pressures on gas regulators can be interfered with by personnel distant to the welding process, who might move the controls or play with them, without realising the harm that can be done.

If inflatable devices are caused to burst during a tube or pipe weld sequence, then the loss of protective gas can cause a highly expensive and extremely inconvenient repair.

Oxygen Monitor for Welding

Inert gas welding requires the elimination of oxygen from the weld zone during the welding of reactive metals including stainless steel. Before the welding process begins, the oxygen level must be reduced to a required minimum, which is less than 100 ppm when welding stainless steel.  The low cos ...

Low Cost Weld Purge Plugs for Tube and Pipe Weld Purging

Due to tight budgets, welders sometimes have to construct their own Weld Purging Equipment, often made from materials such as paper, card, sponge or foam. Homemade dams made from such materials can often lead to loss of welds when they leak or slip from position thus flooding the welding zone with ...

Increase the life of your Tungsten Electrode with MultiStrike®

Thoriated tungsten electrodes are still widely used in GTAW/TIG welding despite the potential health hazards. Thoria is added primarily to stabilize the arc but it is radio-toxic and radio-toxic dust is generated during electrode grinding. To overcome the risk posed by harmful products Huntingdon ...
