Precision designed Curved shields and other innovative purging devices. Each shield is engineered to deliver a coherent umbrella of shielding gas for the most demanding TIG/GTAW welding of reactive metals such as titanium, molybdenum, nickel-based and aluminum based alloys as well as non-reactive metals like stainless steel. These shields provide an inert atmosphere for increased weld-quality, consistency and reduced gas consumption, while minimizing post-weld cleanup.
Designed to work with the industry's most common machine or manual gas tungsten arc welding torches, these devices optimize distribution of the shielding gas, and maintain correct gas velocity ratios between the multiple gas paths. Developed for automated high-tech TIG/GTAW these products are engineered to flow shield gases over a targeted area to promote sufficient cooling, prohibit exposure to oxygen, and prevent weld contamination.
Curved Shields are available for both Hand-Held and Machine TIG torches and in sizes 1/2" - 1 1/2" (1.27cm - 3.81), 1 1/2" - 2 1/2" (3.81cm - 6.35cm), 2 1/2" - 3 1/2" (6.35cm - 8.89cm), and 3 1/2" - 4 1/2" (8.89cm - 11.4cm).
