HFT®’s new Tube weld purge systems®

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® has reached the fifth version of its Tube and Pipe Weld Purge System designs by launching the new PurgElite® range of Tube and Pipe Weld Purging systems for diameters from 1” to 24” diameter.

These systems are suitable for all industries using stainless steel tubes and pipes from highly specialised biogas and semiconductor fields, right along to other industries such as those where the required quality may be less critical.
In particular, PurgElite® systems can be used where the internal surfaces may be polished to ensure minimum entrapment and low corrosion resistance. With the new Intacal® specially designed in line purge valve and the synthetic hose protection, there are no metal parts to scratch the tube or pipe surfaces. 

This new range comprises 15 models for stainless steel tube and pipe sizes from just under 1” to 24”, each one overlapping the range of the other so that all internal diameters from 20mm up to 610mm are covered.

PurgElite® Systems have the following advantages:

1. The ability to manufacture a 1” system

2. Absence of protruding metal parts that scratch the insides of electro polished tubes and pipes
3. Elimination of the burst bladder problems that occur with other systems

4. Greater flexibility because the complicated valves still used by others, have been eliminated.

5. Faster purging using less of the expensive inert purging gas

6. No complicated valve to set and to malfunction and no loss of time at the start-up of jobs.

7. Lower manufacturing cost
