Welding fumes aren’t good to breath, and all regulatory agencies agree that welding fumes should be directed away from the welder’s breathing zone when local exhaust ventilation (LEV) is being used. While all fumes are bad, some fumes are recognized as more hazardous than others. One such fume is hexavalent chromium, which is produced when welding stainless steel and other materials containing chromium.
These systems are manufactured for 6- to 96-inch pipe diameters (150-2,440 mm) and are equipped with a QuickFit coupling for the purge/inflation hose. The QuickFit coupling is fitted with an O-ring for gas-tight sealing.
This tape is best used for the backing of welds, where purging is required but neither easily achieved nor economically viable. It is a glass-fibre weld-backing system that supports and protects the weld root from oxidation.
