Did you know that thousands of dollars in labor are lost every year by companies that continue to use outdated pe fitting and alignment methods? If you want your welding company to maintain a competitive edge, it is important to keep up with the latest measuring and precision welding technologies. This is especially true of welding, a widely in-demand skill in the increasingly industrial global marketplace. Here are some must-have materials for producing the best pipe welds:
These are used in the purging process to monitor oxygen content in the weld area. Purge monitoring is an essential step in the pipe fitting process. Argon, an inert gas, is pumped into a welding area to flush out all oxygen. This is to prevent oxidization of the weld surface, which could cause discoloration of the weld and premature degradation. Other purge equipment you need includes a purge chamber, Argon, a pump, and hoses to convey the gas. For better looking and stronger pipe welds, always use purge monitoring equipment to track oxygen levels.
Pipe Alignment Clamps
Your alignment success is dictated by the accuracy of your alignment clamps. Though rubber tipped flanges might be better for more delicate piping, a stainless steel tip will work better for overall accuracy. This is because rubber has more flexibility, and thus the tips can have minutely varying degrees of density. Sturdy precision is key, and stainless steel will hardly mar any pipe surface.
If you need to remove excess weld metal or shorten a pipe by mere millimeters, electrode grinder will get the job done. They are perfect for pipes and for correcting any small mistakes or imperfections in any type of metalworking project.
If you are a perfectionist, and you demand the highest quality pipe fitting results from your employees, you need to get the most modern welding technology available. In the long run it could save you thousands and help you become the best pipe fitting company in your area.
