Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® to Exhibit at World Nuclear

Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® will be participating at the World Nuclear Exhibition in Paris from 26 – 28 June on the Welsh Government Pavilion, Stand No: 7-D9.

Georgia Gascoyne, CEO for HFT® said: “Our Weld Purging Technology is designed to achieve oxide free, zero colour welds to nuclear standards. On display at World Nuclear will be our Tube and Pipe Weld Purging Systems, available in sizes 1” to 88”.  These ingenious devices are designed to localise a small volume of pipe section to purge, thus making savings in time inert gas costs and eliminating post weld cleaning and oxide removal costs.”

HFT® will also be showing a selection of their Weld Purge Monitors® that accurately measure the amount of oxygen within the purge gas. Their PurgEye® 100 has become the monitor of choice amongst the international welding fraternity, assisting welders to achieve zero colour welds.

The Weld Purge Monitor® was invented by HFT® in the 1970’s and with over 40 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience, the company now has a Family of PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).

Their Pipestoppers® Division is extensive, available for low and high-pressure applications from ½” to over 100” in inflatable, nylon, mechanical and solid rubber connotations for all types of pipe blocking, plugging and stopping.

HFT® also supply Pipe Freezing Kits for use with liquid CO2 and LN2 for pipe sizes ½” to 12” as standard.  These quick and easy to install systems create ice plugs or freeze seals in the pipes, either upstream of a valve or on both sides, avoiding the requirement to completely drain down systems and making a substantial reduction in lost time and costs. The Accu-Freeze™ model is particularly valuable to the Nuclear Industry because it can be operated remotely.

All products on display are currently in use within the nuclear industry by both operators and fabrication sub-contractors. HFT® can manufacture to specific requirements too on short lead times.
