Weld Butts in Pipe Diameters up to 80ÔÇŁ diameter can now be purged using the Argweld┬« QuickPurge┬«II Inflatable Pipe and Pipeline Weld Purging Systems.

QuickPurge®II Pipe Weld Purging Systems have been designed to dramatically reduce weld purging times and deliver bright shiny oxide free welds irrespective of the size and the volume of the pipe. A central collar between the two inflatable dams reduces the volume to be purged to a small annulus.

Around the centre of the collar is a piece of ÔÇśRootGlo┬«ÔÇÖ illuminating strip that allows operators to see the centre of the purging system. RootGlo┬« holds its illuminating charge for 24 hours after which it can be recharged simply by exposing it to daylight
for ten minutes.

The PurgeGate® accessory is fitted to all QuickPurge®II Systems. PurgeGate® is a special device that prevents the purge gas input pressure to the Inflatable Pipe Weld Purging System from rising above 7.5 psi.

Even in the event that the gas pressure rises suddenly to 50 psi by error, only 7.5 psi can be allowed through to the inflatable dams so they are unlikely to burst due to over inflation.
