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 ...

Hydrocarbon Resistant PetroChem® Stoppers

Pipe blocking and stopping pipes containing hydrocarbons such as petroleum products and natural gas can often pose challenges, with normal Pipestoppers unable to withstand such intense conditions. The Pipestoppers® Division of Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® manufacture a range of hydrocarbon re ...

Welding Enclosures for Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing

TWI (The Welding Institute) states that: “Wire arc additive manufacturing uses arc welding power sources and manipulators to build 3D shapes through arc deposition. This process commonly uses wire as a material source and follows a predetermined path to create the desired shape. This method of addi ...

Weld Purge Monitor for On-Site Conditions

Welding on site can pose difficult challenges, including exposure to extremes of heat and cold, harmful sand and dust and even hazardous fumes. Contamination during welding can lead to loss of corrosion resistance and a reduction in strength so control of oxygen levels is crucial.  With another in ...

QuickPurge® Your Large Diameter Pipes for Perfect Welds

Purging large diameter pipework ready for welding can be expensive. Without restricting the volume, there is a high cost involved in inert gas used and time spent waiting for the oxygen level to reach a level low enough for welding to begin.  Weld Purging experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® ...

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 ...
