The Right Atmosphere for Welding TitaniumMar 12, 2014
Specialized auxiliary systems and control packages are available to address the difficulties of welding titanium and its alloys without the risk of damage from atmospheric oxygen contamination. A wide range of trailing shields has been introduced and these take full advantage of advances in engineering technology. Flexible purge enclosures are available in spherical and rectilinear forms up to 2 meters in size. Ensuring that the oxygen content of purge gas is low enough to permit welding without incurring defects or oxidation, the use of a weld purge monitor is essential.
Following here are a series of products offered by the Huntingdon Fusion Techniques Ltd., which designs and supplies weld purging devices and systems, a specialty supplier of weld purging.
