Weld Purge Global Standard Undergoes Major Makeover (UK)
In response to customer requirements and advances in technology Huntingdon Fusion Techniques’ international best sellers, the Argweld® Quick Purge™ Systems have been improved significantly.
A new argon purging valve arrangement has been incorporated which is optimised for all different pipe diameters.
The old adjustment system has been eliminated, so trial setting is no longer necessary thus saving more time on each weld.
To help welders identify the location of the purge systems below the weld joint, where it is normally dark, a high visibility ‘Glo Strip’ has been incorporated centrally between the dams.
This ensures accuracy of positioning. Major international pipework fabricators, including Bechtel Corporation and Chicago Bridge and Iron Company, have applauded the huge cost and time benefits accruing from the use of Quick Purge.
Recognising the technical innovation involved in design and manufacture and the popularity of the systems with welding engineers internationally, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques now has world wide patent protection on the product range.
