Many of you will know and recognise the Starparts welding torch and consumable brand, but what about the story behind the brand.
The EN 12477 standard describes how the welding gloves are designed to provide protection for both hand and wrist while welding or simular work, this is a combination from testing EN 388 and EN 407.
Welding blankets provide protection from sparks, weld spatter and slag generated by welding or metal-cutting applications. Welding blankets are available in a variety of sizes and heat-resistant materials. The proper selection of a welding blanket material depends on factors including … Continue reading
Disposable respirators protect against airborne particulates. They are made largely from the filtermedia itself and cover the nose, mouth and chin.
Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT) is one of the most common methods of surface crack detection used in not destructive testing (NDT). There are two popular methods of testing,
Cellulosic welding electrodes contain approximately 30% cellulose in the coating and are characterised by a deeply penetrating arc and a rapid burn-off rate allowing high welding speeds.
As a rule of thumb, spending more money on a welding helmet will enhance operator comfort, aiding welding performance, resulting in higher quality welds whilst ensuring your safety.
The electrode holder clamps the end of the electrode with conductive clamps built onto its head. These clamps operate either by twist action or spring-loaded clamp action (Crocodile type).
Rutile welding electrodes contain a high proportion of titanium oxide (TiO2) in the coating. The titanium oxide promotes easy arc ignition, smooth arc operation and low spatter levels.
