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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Inflatable Pipe Purging Systems for Zero Colour Welds

Producing zero colour tube and pipe welds when joining metals such as stainless, duplex and chrome steels, titanium and zirconium can be challenging and at times can prove costly. In many industries today the welding zone has to be purged of oxygen down as low as 100 ppm, or even lower in industries ...

Keep an ‘Eye’ on your Critical Welds

Weld Purging is the act of removing oxygen from the vicinity of a weld before, during and after welding metals such as stainless steel, titanium, zirconium and nickel alloys. Without Weld Purging, the weld would be left oxidised and discoloured, which could then lead to loss of corrosion resistance ...

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 ...
