Our Alumaxx® Plus gas increases speeds and quality too. For example in 20 seconds you could TIG weld 50mm compared to 30mm with pure argon.
Ferromaxx® Plus is a unique gas and results in increased welding speeds of up to 17%. Not only do you weld more quickly, set-up times are reduced as well.
These are equivalent standards that are produced by different organisations using different terminology. When a gas complies with one standard it also complies with the other.
Yes. Check out Air Products' Integra® cylinder which is available for welding, cutting and brazing.
There are many factors that cause spatter. It is created during MIG/MAG welding when molten metal droplets are ejected from the arc weld pool. Potential causes include:
| Weld surface
Inomaxx® Plus increases weld speeds by up to 17% and gives a smoother weld. Why not book a demonstration and try out this mixture for yourself.
A lot of the smell comes from ozone. Using Inomaxx® TIG gas reduces ozone from 0.013 ppm to only 0.001 ppm - an amazing reduction of over 90%.
Our Integra® cylinder features Integrated Flow Optimisers (IFOs) - this precision engineered device ensures the optimum preset gas flow rate for your welding process
At Air Products, our teams of laser experts have access to data detailing the necessary purities, pressures and flows of most popular lasers.
Each of these gases has advantages and unique properties. We've produced the attached table showing these benefits of each.
