Gas Safety Inspection Courses

Are you complying with PUWER 1998?

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998

This regulation relates to the safety of your Oxy-Acetylene/Oxy-Propane equipment.

It is the responsibility of employers to ensure that their equipment is inspected by a qualified person on a regular basis.

The inspection should cover and include:-

• Test equipment for functionality and safety
• Identify and replace non-compliant equipment
• Diagnose and prevent equipment problems
• Provide safe, compliant, leak-free installations
• Manage a ’tagging’ process for annual inspections
We are introducing a BCGA CP7 Gas Inspection Course to our site, in the near future.

Learn how to provide a complete inspection and certification service.
This course enables those supervisors, users or managers, with a
basic understanding of the Oxy/Fuel gas welding process to inspect
portable Oxy/Fuel cutting and welding gas equipment in accordance
with the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and the
British Compressed Gases Association Code of Practice 7 (BCGA CP7).

Speedglas “Adflo”

spAfter a short period off of the site we have decided to reinstate the Speedglas Auto sensing and Speedglas “Adflo” Range of welding helmets.

This range of Welder Safety PPE has proved very successful over the years and has been reinstated after requests from a number customers.

NEW: Phantom eXtreme Auto Darkening Welding Helmet

Welding and Welder are delighted to introduce a brand new auto-darkening welding helmet to their range of welding safety related products.

Phantom eXtreme Auto Darkening Welding Helmet is a lightweight auto-darkening welding headshield with modern styling, finished with perforated sheet and steel cladding graphics.

With a shell manufactured from high impact resistant nylon the Phantom eXtreme has a dedicated Grinding Mode and conforms to EN175B, therefore providing full face protection in grinding applications.

The ratchet headgear makes it comfortable on the head and compliments it’s many lens features and durably painted artwork. We are sure that any welder wearing it will become the envy of any workshop.

Phantom eXtreme lens provides a massive “97mm x 62mm” viewing area and allows the operator to select a welding shade between 5 and 13. This is an improvement on many other helmets because the shades are selectable in half shade steps.

Arc sensing down to just 2A means this unit is ideal for any welding application and is particularly suitable for low amp, precision TIG welding. In addition variable sensitivity & delay controls allow the lens to be optimised for every application and when not in use the lens reverts to DIN 3.5 to provide a very clear vision of the work area.

“Four” high accuracy arc sensors mean that once the arc is struck, the lens changes from shade 3.5 to the desired welding shade in 0.04ms. This provides the user with instantaneous protection, and eliminates the possibility of any damage to the eyes.

The lens is powered from a solar cell, which draws energy from the welding arc, so there is no need for battery changes. With its modern styling, high-specifications and economical price it is ideal for any application.

This helmet conforms to DIN plus, CE, EN175B, ANSI Z87.1.

What Welding Safety Wear?

Many of the posts in our support blog are prompted by questions we have recieved directly from customers. Recently we were asked:

“When you’re welding (besides your EFP) what do you wear? What does your get-up consist of? Some wear hats and some don’t. Do you?”

Well…for top to toe for maximum protection we use:-

1.Spark resistant cap [worn with the peak at the back]
2. Auto-darkening welding helmet
3.Flame Retardant overall, or, Chrome Leather Jacket
4.Flame Retardant, Chrome leather Sleeves
5.Good quality Welders Gauntlets, or Mitts
6.Flame Retardent, or Chrome Leather Trousers, Chaps, Apron
7.Spats
8.Steel Toe capped boots, with quick release buckles, or steel toe capped Rigger Boots.

Consideration should also be given to personal, or Mobile Fume Extraction.

Suggested Welding Material for Rebuilding

Welding QuestionAt Welding & Welder our technical team just love to help customers with specific wleding scenarios that they have encountered in the past, or are currently trying to solve. We recently had this question asked:

“Currently We are using Feeding Screw rebuild with S.S Electrode 308 & 316,Its base material is 304. after rebuild We hard face it by using Stellite Electrodes by developing 3 mm layer all around to prevent it from quick wear. Can any one suggest the Welding material which may be more efficient than S.S Electrode 308 & 316?”

For this type of application, it is not always necessary to use a Cobalt based [Stellite] wearfacing product. Depending on the medium which the screw is feeding, excellent results can be obtained using a buffer layer of 18Cr-6Mn-8Ni -C0.1 Balance Fe. Type E18 8 Mn R12. This can then be capped with a Cromium Carbide E Fe – 14 – 60 GR. This will give a multi pass hardness of 57 – 60 HRc, but will also achieve a smooth polished weld bead, as deposited. However if very high abrasion is the wear characteristic you are trying to overcome then Cromium Carbide electrodes conforming to E 15 – 70 – GTZ will give a multi-pass hardness of 68 – 70 HRC.
Similar chemistry welding alloys can be obtained in MIG/MAG wires

Choosing The Right Electrode

Welding ElectrodesWe were asked recently, “what should I consider before choosing the correct electrode?”. To help answer we came up with 10 (actually 11) basic steps, prior to making your weld;

1. What is the analysis of the base material?
2. Can I obtain an electrode to match the base material properties [UTS etc]
3. What joint preparation is required?
4. Will I need to pre-heat/post heat, before, during and after welding?
3. What power source [welding machine] do I have available?
5. Do I require AC, or DC welding power.
6. If the base material requires me to use a Low Hydrogen Type electrode [7018/7016 etc] does my welding power source have a “Hot Start”?
7. Will I need different diameters of electrodes [root pass, fill and cap]?
8. Will the welding process give off noxious fumes? If yes make sure you have adequate ventilation [fume extraction]
9. Make sure that the electrode you purchase has all the approvals you require [cheap can work out to be very expensive] 1) How you store the welding electrodes especially with regards to humidity and temperature drops.
10. Always check the condition of the flux coating for any reduction in diameter in case they are possibly not a concentric coating which will give you problems on deposition. If the coating has been chipped this could also give you problems with preventing atmospheric contamination of the weld deposit.
11. If you are using low Hydrogen electrodes, then ensure they are dried prior to use if taken from a tin in a heated quiver or ideally vacuum packed which may be better for site conditions.
