New trailing shields to reduce pipe corrosion

news item image
Reactive metals including stainless steels and titanium will react with air when they are heated during the welding process, which can cause oxidation and lead to a loss of corrosion resistance properties.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT) has recently launched their improved Argweld Weld Trailing Shields - providing a high quality inert gas coverage during flat sheet, plate or pipe welding.
Chairman of HFT Ron Sewell said: “Preventing the alloy from coming into immediate contact with air is easily done with our Argweld Weld Trailing Shields. Manufactured right here in the UK, we constantly strive to improve our welding technology.
“We have been manufacturing Argweld Weld Trailing Shields for over 45 years now right, so we can guarantee quality and 100% craftsmanship.”
Designed to fit the industries most common welding torches, the shields have a new unique clip design, which means the welder can easily change different shield sizes without having to change the welding torch.
