Remote Weld Purge Monitoring

The exposure to oxygen during the welding process on alloys such as stainless steel will result in discolouration and can severely reduce corrosion resistance properties. It is therefore crucial that the oxygen level is monitored throughout the welding process and kept to a desired level. However, is often difficult for welding personnel to get an accurate reading of the oxygen level at the...

Reliable Oxygen Analyzer for Welding Titanium

When welding titanium, it is essential that the oxygen level surrounding the weld is purged down to as low as 50 ppm. Measuring the oxygen level with a reliable oxygen analyzer is the most efficient way to know exactly when to commence welding. Specifically designed for Purge Chamber welding, the PurgEye® Desk is leading the way in inert gas purging technology by reading oxygen levels from 1,000...

Oxide Free Titanium Welds with the PurgEye® Desk

The Welding Institute states that “Titanium is a reactive metal; it will burn in pure oxygen at 600°C and in nitrogen at around 800°C. Oxygen and nitrogen will also diffuse into titanium at temperatures above 400°C raising the tensile strength but embrittling the metal. Despite this reactivity titanium is used extensively in chemical processing, offshore and aerospace applications.” In...

Basalt America Announces Stronger, Lighter, and Corrosion-Free FRP's (Fiber Reinforced Polymers)

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), represents a truly groundbreaking advancement in structural reinforcement. Lightweight, strong, and green, they are changing the way the construction industry thinks about rebar. Unlike steel, FRPs don't rust and are far stronger than standard rebar. To learn why Fiber Reinforced Polymers are poised to change the way the world builds, see our video.
