When welding titanium, stainless steel and other reactive metal pipework and sheet metalwork, it is important to prevent the welds from oxidising or coming into contact with any air during their welding and cooling periods.
The use of products called Trailing Shields®, designed and manufactured by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® ensure the weld stays under a protective argon gas coverage, while the hot weld metal is cooling, preventing it from oxidising on contact with air.
Titanium and stainless steels are chosen for their corrosion resistant properties in particular and if they are then allowed to oxidise during the weld cycle, expensive post welding cleaning techniques become necessary.
