Valve Regulates Pressure and Flow


Various inflatable pipe purging systems are in use worldwide for welding titanium, stainless steel, and zirconium tubes and pipes. Often, these purging systems are inflated beyond their capacity and burst mid-weld, resulting in a lost weld and broken purging system.


PurgeGate, a unique valve, regulates the pressure and flow of gas that is passed through the system, ensuring it will not burst regardless of the pressure and flow rate. It has found valuable applications in the Welding Industry, where inflatable devices are used for Weld Purging of tubes and pipes.


Setting flow rates and pressures on gas regulators can be interfered with by personnel distant to the welding process, who might move the controls or play with them, without realizing the harm that can be done.


If inflatable devices are caused to burst during a tube or pipe weld sequence, then the loss of protective gas can cause a highly expensive and extremely inconvenient weld repair.
