Thoriated Tungsten Electrodes are left in the dust with MultiStrike®

Red tipped thoriated Tungsten Electrodes are said to contain 1.70% to 2.20% thorium. Thorium improves the quality of Tungsten Electrodes but also has a radio-toxic compound posing a risk to welders, particularly during grinding. Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s blue-tipped MultiStrike® Tungsten ...

Common Mistakes In Welding Of Duplex Stainless Steel Pipes | Oil and Gas industry

Experiments and results of duplex stainless steel pipe welding Man has produced and used duplex stainless steel for almost 80 years. Early alloys, such as malleable alloy 329 and cast alloy CD4MCu, contained far more ferrite than austenite. People do not pay attention to the importance o ...

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 ...

Flexible Welding Enclosures® for Additive Manufacturing

When welding titanium and any other reactive metal for additive manufacturing, it is important that the welding zone is purged of oxygen and nitrogen to a level as low as 10 parts per million (ppm) of O2 or less. After more than 40 years of experience in the field of manufacturing flexible welding ...

Safer and More Efficient Welding with MultiStrike®

Many welders today are still using 2% red-tipped thoriated Tungsten Electrodes, which contain radiotoxic thoria and therefore can be dangerous to health of those exposed to it, especially in the dust format from grinding the tips. To overcome the accumulated hazardous thoria conditions, whilst main ...

On-Site Weld Purge Monitor® with PurgeNet™

Welders often face difficulties when working under the conditions experienced on-site. When welding critical joints on-site the challenges might come from exposure to extremes of heat and cold, harmful sand and dust and even hazardous fumes. Therefore using an expensive Weld Purge Monitor® in such c ...

Weld Purge your Heat Treated Pipes Confidently with HotPurge®

High strength steel joints must pre-heated prior to welding and also require a post-weld heat treatment. Weld joints of this nature are often purged of oxygen and welded in an inert atmosphere to reduce the risk of ‘sugaring', an imperfection that could allow metal pieces to break off inside pipewor ...

Purge with Extra Options

Weld purging is the act of removing oxygen from the vicinity of a joint with an inert gas. It is essential when welding metal tubes and pipes made from titanium, stainless steel, chrome and nickel steels where a high strength joint or an exceptionally clean and smooth joint is needed. For example in ...

World Standard Weld Purge Monitor®

To ensure non-oxidised, zero colour welds are achieved when welding metals such as stainless, duplex and chrome steels, titanium and nickel alloys, a Weld Purge Monitor® (oxygen monitor) must be used to measure the oxygen level before and during welding. The World Standard PurgEye® 100 IP65 Weld Pu ...

Safer pipe 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 ...

Safer Welding with MultiStrike®

Tungsten Electrodes are used when arc welding with the Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) process or Plasma welding. It is necessary to grind tungsten electrodes after they have touched the molten weld pool or the filler rod to the tungsten, which is not only time consuming but can also be a hazard to health. ...
