Introducing PurgeNet™ and Accessories

Monitoring the oxygen level before, during and after welding is essential. Welding in an environment of less then 100 ppm for stainless steel and less than 20 ppm for titanium ensures that welds are free from oxidation. Allowing joints to oxidise when welding then involves mechanical or chemical ox ...

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 ...

Low Cost Weld Purge Monitor®

Weld Purging is the act of removing oxygen from the vicinity of a weld before, during and after welding. The weld zone is usually confined, with the oxygen level being monitored to ensure it is reduced to a level where welds and their heat affected zones will not be affected by oxygen, leading to lo ...

Accessories for Inflatable Weld Purging Systems

It is important when welding metals such as stainless steel, titanium and zirconium that the welding zone is purged of oxygen even as low as 10 parts per million (ppm) before, during and immediately after welding, in order to achieve a clean, oxide free, zero colour weld. Weld Purging Experts Hunti ...

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 ...

Low cost welding accessories

Titanium, stainless steel and other corrosion resistant materials are used for tubing and pipework especially where there are highly corrosive materials flowing through them. When such pipework is welded for joining or repairs, it is necessary to protect the material in and close to the weld joint ...

Improve Weld Root Profiles with Backing Tape®

During the welding of tanks, chambers and vessels, an uneven root profile can cause product entrapment that may contaminate a process as well as interrupting flow characteristics. Many weld joints require a controlled underbead profile of the first root pass. Where manual welding cannot control the ...

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 ...
