When welding metals such as stainless steel, titanium and zirconium, it is important to make sure 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.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® has recently manufactured tailor made Argon Gas Feed Hose assemblies with leak tight fittings to attach immediately to their Argweld® range of Inflatable Tube and Pipe Weld Purging Systems at one end and to the gas source at the other. A selection of leak tight, end fittings are provided for attaching an argon gas regulator to at one end and a 12 mm to 12 mm quick connect fitting as standard at the other end, which joins up with all HFT® Argweld® Weld Purging Systems.
The Argon Gas Feed Hoses can also be supplied to all other TIG / GTAW welders, with their own special fitting as required. The hoses are available off the shelf in a standard range of lengths, 30 m, 25 m, 20 m, 15 m, 10 m and 5 m.
