Zura The prepurge time is an empirically derived value dependent on many factors including tube size, gas flow rate, exit orifice size, number, sizes and locations of dead-legs or other components that can trap atmosphere, and thus take more time to purge. However, this value will only be correct for the specific assembly tested. This variable orifice is especially important because as the joint is welded shut, the effective purge gas exit area is reduced, so as the joint is sealed the SG-1 is making real-time adjustments to accurately maintain the required pressure. Once that is determined, the next problem is to correlate the required pressure at the ass with the qws pressure at the delivery inlet.

The document contains a color illustration relating the discoloration to the oxygen content of the backing shielding gas. This standard provides a visual comparison guide that can be used to specify surface discoloration heat-tint criteria for sanitary hygienic welds in austenitic stainless steel tube. The Tube Sample. The tube shown below was prepared by making 10 full-penetration autogenous welds on the outside diameter of a 2-in.
Welds on L tubing showed no significant difference in heat tint from L. The hydrogen addition to the torch shielding gas is considered to have no effect on the heat-affected zone HAZ heat-tint oxide on the inside surface. To provide controlled amounts of oxygen in the backing gas, medical-grade compressed air was mixed with The oxygen content was measured with a calibrated commercial oxygen indicator. The amount of oxygen in the backing gas was measured to be as follows: No.
The illustration should be used as a reference to identify the degree of heat-tint oxide by number, and not to specify oxygen limits in the backing gas. The acceptable degree of heat tint can vary with different service environments. The cost involved in obtaining very low levels of heat tint should be considered when specifying such levels.

Mezigore SEMI Standard F78 includes a chart with minimum and maximum purge pressures and flow rates for various tube sizes and wall thicknesses. Since the pressures are quite low, on the order of 0. The input gas is controlled both for pressure and flow, using a variable orifice iris controlled by a microprocessor as a closed loop system. Purging for suitable weld color is relatively simple. Since the internal pressure at the weld-site is dependent upon the purge gas delivery pressure, the distance from the entry measurement point and the weld, and the gas venting rate, a closed loop pressure controller is required, such that a specific, low value pressure can be maintained. The unit then utilizes 1d8. This level of measurement and accuracy permits the EXEL SG-1 to repeatedly maintain the exact internal pressure required for a perfect weld.
