PURGING EQUIPMENT

Purging Equipment - Welding Tools

Eliminate oxidation when welding tubes & pipes with QWS Welding Supply’s high quality and heavy-duty PURGING EQUIPMENT.

During steel welding, oxidation occurs in the weld seam if oxygen reaches this area unhindered. This situation is even more intense with Titanium, Zirconium, Molybdenum and other gas-reactive metals and alloys. The resulting oxidized surfaces are no longer corrosion-resistant, and further treatment is necessary.

Removing oxidation by grinding also removes the metal's passive protection against corrosion. Other mechanical procedures such as brushing, blasting and pickling remove the oxidation, which restores corrosion resistance. However, in some cases such as pipe welding, removing oxidation after welding is difficult or impossible to do.

During pipe welding, oxides are usually located in areas that are almost impossible to access, such as in two 4-inch-diameter pipes that are each 10 feet long. Pickling will restore the corrosion resistance, but it is time-consuming and nearly impossible on a remote job site. Instead of removing oxidation, another solution is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. This is what purging tries to achieve.
