Since the invention of “resistance welding” in 1886 by Elihu Thomson, welding has been an ever-evolving process that has forever changed the manufacturing industry. At the conclusion of 2016, it continues to show no signs of slowing down. The welding industry continues to be a highly competent and cost-effective method for joining metals and non-metals, including plastics and composites.
Welding employs industrial gases including nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, hydrogen, helium and acetylene. Welding continues to be rising in industries like oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, power, mining, steelmaking, metals, environmental protection, medicine, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, water, fertilizers, nuclear power, electronics and aerospace. All of these industries are making breakthroughs in the global markets and paving the way for further automation of welding techniques and improved welding processes.
ChemTec’s 125 Series Flow Monitors
Welding gases need to be monitored to ensure a steady supply of gas during the welding process. Unsteady gas supply, leaks or breaks in the line can lead to corrosion, structural defects in the metals, or a weak joint.
ChemTec’s 125 Series flow monitors are a great solution to monitoring the internal gases within welding systems. Implementing the 125 Series flow monitors can prevent downtime for repairs and increase the lifespan of the welding equipment.
