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 and metallurgical imperfections.
In order to accurately read the residual oxygen level... Read More
Welding within the Petrochemical Industry involves working in refineries and plants that produce gasoline and a variety of other petroleum-based products as well as chemicals and oil-related products. Welded joints in these applications are often critical and the insides of pipework must be purged with expensive argon gas to reduce the oxygen levels around the joint below 100 ppm.
Due... Read More
