Flexible Welding Enclosures, ideal for welding titanium and zirconium

October 5, 2015 - It is essential when welding critical metallic joints in titanium and zirconium that the welding zone is purged of oxygen to a level as low as 10 parts per million (ppm).

A purging environment for a fraction of the cost of a rigid welding chamber is available for this type of work from Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT.

HFT’s Flexible Welding Enclosures provide a solution where a rigid chamber may not be economically viable or where space may be at a premium.

Size for size, HFT’s range of Flexible Welding Enclosures cost considerably less than a metal glove box or vacuum system.

The enclosures are manufactured with two sets of glove ports as standard and the upper half of the enclosure is optically clear, providing excellent welding vision. A transfer sleeve makes it possible to pass small parts in or out of the enclosure without affecting the purge quality.


During the last decade aerospace, automotive, biochemical, medical, food, beverage, semiconductor and nuclear sectors have all taken advantage of the low cost and easy to use Flexible Welding Enclosures.
