Key Features

Sizes from 6 to 88 inches (152 to 2,235 mm)

Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®’s innovative QuickPurge® Systems, which are manufactured up to 88” (2,235mm), dramatically reduces the space that needs to be purged, thereby reducing purging time dramatically, making huge savings in both time and gas costs.

Some advantages and key features of the Argweld® QuickPurge® Systems.

The systems are manufactured from a heat protective material so that the high temperatures at close proximity to the weld do not damage the devices.

Quick fit coupling for purge / inflation hose complete with 'O' ring for gas tight sealing and stainless steel collet to hold the tube mechanically tight. Now fitted with "Anti-Release" circlip to prevent parts accidentally separating inside the pipe.

Special attention has been paid to the selection of low vapour pressure materials to minimise outgassing in the purge space during welding giving greater assurance of obtaining a clean oxide free weld root.

Independently inflated dams to reduce volume of expensive purge gas used. The unique design of the central sleeve dramatically reduces purge volume.

Argweld® QuickPurge® are 'plug and play' systems, ready to use with no set up time.

Perfect central alignment and weld root obeservation with the RootGlo® Centre Alignment Band. The positioning strip will continue to glow in the dark for 12 hours and can easily be seen through the weld root which allows fast and accurate alignment.

No metal parts can scratch internally polished stainless steel tubes or pipes or cause cross contamination. The absence of metal parts in the proximity of the weld ensures that NDT examination is not disrupted.

In combination with the multiple sintered outlets and IntaCal® gas release mechanism, which is low profile precise device, the weld purge gas is dispersed evenly without turbulence.

Four pull straps on each dam multiple stitched with tough kevlar thread, each with a breaking strain of over 1000 lbs. Enables easy manipulation around bends and fittings as well as in straight pipes. Friction free coatings to allow easy movement through pipes from one joint to another.

With PurgeGate®  technology, each device has absolute protection from bursting and over inflation of the systems.

Dramatic savings of time, gas and money that can be demonstrated when using the Argweld® QuickPurge® Systems. The purge gas volume needed to be purged is greatly reduced, providing lower operating costs, with gas and time savings, so each Argweld® QuickPurge® System pays for itself in just a few welds!

Argweld® QuickPurge® Systems are used for high quality, reliable welding of stainless steel tube and pipe joints as well as duplex and chrome steels, titanium, nickel and other alloy materials to ensure a very fast weld purge time and a very high quality weld root, free from oxidation and discolouration.
