Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®, a global weld purging design and manufacturing company, has announced that it now manufactures tailor-made Argon Gas Feed Hose assemblies with leak tight fittings.
Luke Keane, Distributor Support for HFT® said: “It is important when welding stainless steels, titanium, zirconium and other reactive metals, that the welding zone is purged of oxygen, even down to as low as 20 parts per million (ppm). These special, high quality Argon Hoses, provide welders with a guaranteed leak tight method of feeding non-contaminated argon gas into their welding zone.”
The natural rubber feed hose comes complete with an argon regulator, which directly connects to any range of Inflatable Tube and Pipe Weld Purging Systems at one end and to the gas source at the other. These hose assemblies can also be used for transporting other gases where a guaranteed leak tight delivery is required.
A selection of leak tight adaptors is provided for attaching the argon gas regulator whilst the pre-fitted other end joins up with all HFT® Argweld® Weld Purging Systems. According to the company, these high quality fittings will eliminate welding connection difficulties experienced on site.
Argon Gas Feed Hoses can also be supplied to all other TIG / GTAW welders with their own special fitting as required. The hoses are available off the shelf in a standard range of lengths, 30 m, 25 m, 20 m, 15 m, 10 m and 5 m.
Conforming to British Standard BS EWN 599 Quality Standard, the Argon Gas Feed Hoses each have a temperature range from -30º up to 80ºC and a safety factor of three times working pressure 20 bar (300 psi).
