Industrial gas, shielding gas and laser gas for welding and metal processing industry
Argon is used to create an inert gas shield. It is usually mixed with other industrial gases such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen. It can enhance the arc stability and characteristics of gas shielded metal arc welding. In addition, it is tungsten electrode arc welding (GTAW). The main protective gas of the process.
Carbon dioxide is often mixed with argon to form a protective gas that protects molten metal from air pollution during arc welding (GTAW).
Oxygen can be used as a plasma cutting gas and laser cutting auxiliary gas, and can also be added in small amounts as a protective gas for carbon and stainless steel welding.
Helium is an inert industrial gas with high thermal conductivity. It can protect the welding pool and prevent oxidation during the welding process of metals such as aluminum, stainless steel, copper and some magnesium alloys.
Hydrogen is the lightest of all gases. Used to improve plasma welding and cutting operations. Because hydrogen can reduce oxides, it is usually mixed with argon for stainless steel welding.
Nitrogen can be used as an auxiliary gas for laser cutting or plasma cutting, and also as a shielding gas for stainless steel welding.
Acetylene is the gas with the highest flame temperature among all commercially available flammable gases. It provides an ideal combustion environment for oxyfuel welding and cutting and brazing operations.
As an alternative gas for oxyfuel cutting, StarFlame C guarantees the safety of thick cutting of carbon steel under severe conditions. This gas can also be used in large quantities for numerically controlled oxyfuel applications.
