PIPE PURGING EQUIPMENT

TAG PIPE Ltd manufacture an extensive range of backing gas systems for the purging of stainless steel and other exotic materials prior to welding, where creating the perfect weld environment is of the utmost importance.

From the tried and tested inflatable purge bag system and expanding test plugs(pipe stoppers) to the new innovations in purging techniques, the Rapid Purge, and the Silicone Double Seal System, designed to dramatically reduce gas usage and purging times, used in conjunction with our oxygen monitors, our range of purging equipment will save you time and money.

Why Purge?

When welding stainless steel, titanium and other corrosion resistant materials ,the perfect environment for welding is paramount to maintaining the corrosion resistant properties. During the welding process, the weld seam is subjected to heat and air which causes oxidation, if the correct processes are not adhered to. For the best results, the oxidation must be prevented. The quality of the exotic corrosion resistant material welding is dependent on the correct purging methods to minimise or eliminate the oxidation.

Weld Quality?

The effective welding of stainless steel, titanium and other exotic materials for the nuclear, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, semi-conductor, aerospace and food industries requires the proper tools to create a perfect weld environment. Purging equipment and its use has a major impact on preventing oxidation and improving final weld quality. The basic principles of purging can be seen below. TAG PIPE Ltd supply a comprehensive range of systems to create the correct welding environment, whatever the application.
