PURGE - PIPE PURGING SYSTEMS
In cases where purging is required to be fast as well as reliable, the Quick Purge Systems can be used.
These systems will typically purge 36” pipe diameters to below 0.1% oxygen in less than 10 minutes and all smaller pipes,
Each Quick Purge system is covered with heat protective material on the inside, so that the high temperatures at
close proximity to the weld do not damage the devices.
Three hoses are available, one for argon inflation and purge,
the second for auxilliary purge and the third for gas exhaust via a purge monitor.
The system is connected to an argon hose and inserted into the pipe to be
The spinal connection hose is shorter than with other devices, to keep the purged
volume to a minimum. The majority of the volume between the two dams, is
filled with a special heat resisting collar, to keep the purge time low.
After positioning the system the argon source is opened, the dams inflated to size and
the interspace purged.
After a few seconds, the auxilliary purge line can be opened to ensure the
fastest possible purge time.
In trials these devices have performed many high speed welds under these conditions.
