Argweld® Heat Resistant Pipe Purging Systems from Huntingdon Fusion Techniques Limited

A wide range of high strength steels containing chromium, vanadium and molybdenum as alloying elements (generally referred to as CMV steels) is prone to cracking during welding.

The crack tendency can be reduced by a combination of pre-heat and post-weld heating since this prevents steep temperature excursions and the formation of brittle and undesirable intermetallic phases.

The HFT Heat Resistant Pipe Purging Systems have been developed so that pre-heating and welding can be carried out with the purge system in place.

They will withstand temperatures in the region of 300oC for periods up to 24 hours.

Description

Because of the limited flexibility of the heat resisting materials used in construction, the expansion range of each system is +12mm -0mm; each system is manufactured to meet a customer-specified internal pipe diameter.

All purging systems are re-usable.

Argweld® Water Soluble Purge Dam Film

The ARGWELD® purge material makes dams which produce an impenetrable purge barrier but which can easily be washed away when hydrostatically testing the pipe or just by normal wash out. It dissolves away completely without leaving any fibres to clog up filters or other sensitive parts in a system and it is strong in all directions so that it can maintain a good gas barrier throughout the purging process. Trace element certification can be provided to show that ARGWELD® purge film does not contain

Argweld® Trailing Shields for Titanium & Stainless Steel Welding

By using an ARGWELD® Trailing shield welds will be left bright and shiny and eliminate discolouration and oxidation. ARGWELD® Trailing shields will reduce gas consumption, save re-work and eliminate wasted material costs due to oxidation. ARGWELD® Trailing shields can be used for welding stainless steels, duplexes as well as titanium and any other weldable metal where discolouration or oxidation needs to be eliminated. The shields are manufactured to weld flat plate and most diameter tube, pipe

Argweld® Multi Exhaust Pipe Weld Purging Systems

Uses less inert gas The volume to be purged is localised. For a typical pipe run, the volume of gas used is less than 2% of that required for a conventional purge. Faster The system is very quick and easy to install. It can be positioned accurately and the dams inflate instantly. The purging time is a fraction of that required to purge by con- ventional methods. Easy to use Argweld® Pipe Purge Systems greatly simplify the process of inert gas purging. Training is minimal, leading to bright shiny

Argweld® Quick Purge™ Pipe Purging Systems

ARGWELD® Quick PurgeTM Pipe Welding Systems are used for high quality, reliable welding of stainless steel tube and pipe joints to ensure a very fast weld purge time and a very high quality weld root, free from oxidation, discolouration and coking. Weld quality with ARGWELD® Quick PurgeTM Systems has even allowed many operators to reduce or even eliminate the number of Golden Welds (Repair Welds) on major contracts. ARGWELD® Quick PurgeTM Systems will typically purge 36” pipe diameters to below

Argweld® Weld Purge Monitor MK V

Keeps waiting time to a minimum The monitor can tell the operator exactly when the Oxygen level is low enough to commence welding. No estimating or guesswork is involved, so no time or gas is wasted waiting for the correct Oxygen level to be reached. Saves on excessive use of inert gas The exact Oxygen content is shown on the monitor so no more inert gas than necessary has to be used to ensure that the weld will be free of oxidation. Prevents weld failures Premature starts on welds are avoided,
