Weld Purge your Heat-Treated Pipes with HotPurge®

New power plants are in high demand and several hundred are expected to be built over the next decade. Chromium-molybdenum (chromoly) steel pipe such as P91 is a major construction material for the high pressure piping in these plants and there are particular techniques for welding this pipework to ...

Low Cost Weld Purging with Weld Purge Plugs™

Weld Purging smaller tubes and pipes of different diameters can be challenging, especially when budgets are tight. Often, Welders are left to create their own homemade purging dams out of unsuitable materials such as foam, paper or cardboard. Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have designed and dev ...

Advanced Weld Purging with the PurgEye® 200

Metallurgically sound and oxide-free welds are a minimum requirement now when welding stainless steel, zirconium, nickel alloys and titanium. Quality control procedures are in place within most industries and welders are no longer able to ‘guess' when their oxygen level is low enough to begin weldi ...

Highly Accurate 100 ppm Weld Purge Monitor for Welding Stainless Steel

Measuring the oxygen level with a Weld Purge Monitor® before, during and after welding stainless steel is crucial to achieve oxide free, zero colour welds that are metallurgically sound. It is important not to use “oxygen analyzers” or “oxygen safety monitors” as they are calibrated for accuracy on ...

Chemical Resistant Inflatable Stoppers for blocking pipes containing hydrocarbon liquids and gases

During petrochemical operations, where hydrocarbons are present in liquid or gas form, inflatable stoppers are often used for various applications such as debris stopping, leak testing, low-pressure hydrostatic tests, blocking the release of hydrocarbon gases and a variety of plumbing operations. ...

Standard and Custom Made, Low Cost Weld Purge Dams

When welding stainless steel, titanium or zirconium pipes, or pipework, the oxygen level within the pipe must be reduced to a level of 50 ppm, or lower in certain cases. The most cost-effective solution is to restrict the volume around the joint with a Tandem Weld Purging System. For the purging o ...

Low Cost 1 PPM Weld Purge Monitor®

For many years, oxygen monitors and gas analysers have been used for weld purging. These instruments have been designed and calibrated for accuracy at atmospheric oxygen level, but not for weld purging where accuracy is required when reading much lower oxygen levels. With their scientific backgroun ...

Weld Purging for Closing Welds

Weld Purging a variety of pipes of different diameters can prove complex and costly, particularly when having to fill whole pipework systems with expensive argon gas. One solution that welders have traditionally devised has been to construct homemade foam or paper dams that are placed either side of ...

Closure Welds Made Easy!

Weld Purging closure welds can be challenging, especially when using a tandem inflatable system to reduce the volume being purged. Often, the system becomes irretrievable and therefore other weld purging methods have to be used, to avoid unwanted products in the pipe.   The innovative Weld Purge ...
