Eliminate the Thoria and Maintain the High Performance with Blue-Tipped MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes

Thoria, found in thoriated Tungsten Electrodes is a radio-toxic compound and emits mainly alpha particles, which are harmful if released inside the digestive tract or inside the lungs where they act as a carcinogen. Thoriated Tungsten Electrodes therefore pose a risk to welders during grinding.  W ...

Welding Enclosures for Titanium Parts

Welding titanium alloys often has to be carried out in an environment where oxygen can be eliminated throughout the welding cycle. If the parts were to come into contact with oxygen ay any point, the reactive metal can become contaminated, oxidising which can lead to reductions in corrosion resistan ...

Pipe Purging accurately down to 10 ppm

Measuring the oxygen level during Pipe Purging is crucial. Stainless steel has to be monitored down to at least 100 ppm, however alloys such as titanium and zirconium may need to be monitored down to as low as 10 ppm. Pipe Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s PurgEye® 200 Weld Purge ...

Successful Low Cost Weld Purging

Weld Purging is the act of removing oxygen from the vicinity of a joint before, during and after welding. Metals that require weld purging include stainless steels, titanium and zirconium. Weld Purging various sizes of tubes and pipes can be challenging as well as expensive, which is why many weld ...

Oxide Free Titanium Welds with the PurgEye® Desk

The Welding Institute states that “Titanium is a reactive metal; it will burn in pure oxygen at 600°C and in nitrogen at around 800°C. Oxygen and nitrogen will also diffuse into titanium at temperatures above 400°C raising the tensile strength but embrittling the metal. Despite this reactivity tita ...

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 ...

Low Cost Weld Purge Monitor for Welding Titanium

Weld Purging Techniques are now used in most industries especially when welding reactive metals. Whilst the welding torch provides a protective cover to the top of the fusion zone, inert gas coverage is also required at the weld root.  By sampling the gas and testing the oxygen content around the ...
