New high-speed pipe purging system

07 July 2015

High-speed pipe purging system QuickPurge® III for purging tube, pipe and pipeline joints for welding cuts waiting times and amortise themselves in less than one weld. QuickPurge is leading the way in the field of purging tube, pipe and pipeline joints over 6” diameter, where oxygen levels are required to be as low as 10ppm or less.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques's (HFT) innovative design of the QuickPurge System means that zero colour welds will be achieved and there will be no loss of corrosion resistance caused by oxidation. Using IntaCal® combined with the integrated PurgeGate® device makes it possible to inflate the dams with argon gas safely, prior to releasing it, for purging the space between the dams where the weld joint is located.

All systems are manufactured as standard with a hose for connecting a Weld Purge Monitor® to, which can read oxygen levels down to 10ppm. QuickPurge Systems are manufactured for pipe diameters from 6" to 96" (150mm to 2440mm) and are equipped with a QuickFit coupling for the purge/inflation hose.

QuickPurge Systems are available for each American Pipe Institute (API) pipe diameter, with an expansion range to cover all internal diameters from schedule 10 to schedule 160 and even thicker pipe wall standards.
