Critical Decision Parameters
The decision in selecting the type of gas to be used for welding has many underlying factors determining the quality of the final product and they are as follows:
The metal fabrication sector can be subdivided into various sub categories based on the type and composition of metal to be welded. Each technique will employ a specific type of gas/mixture which is most suited for the work metal. Shielding gases are used to create an inert atmosphere around the work area and in certain cases work metal. Shielding gases differentiate by the way the conduct heat and their chemical characteristics.
