Weld CO2 Gas Analyzer

Gas Detection for Welding Shops and Gas Distribution

For many individuals in this field, continuous monitoring of inert gases is critical during the welding process as these gases are extremely hazardous. The gases that are generated, however, depend specifically on the welding process used and the individual form. The most common gases used in welding and industrial processes are typically carbon dioxide, oxygen, argon, nitrogen dioxide, helium, and butane.

What are the 4 Main Types of Welding?

  1. Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW/MIG)
  2. Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW/TIG)
  3. Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)
  4. Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)

What is CO2 Welding?

Metal arc welding is one common form of the welding process, which uses a consumable electrode that is fed into the arc at a constant speed. This arc, with a high current density, can basically alter any length being corrected by naturally occurring changes in the burn-off rate.

Overall, many welders use carbon dioxide because it improves weld speed, penetration, and mechanical properties that make it the most suitable for steel in metal inert gas (MIG) welding.

Monitoring with a CO2 Weld Gas Analyzer

In order to test the CO2, you will need to use a CO2 Welding Gas Analyzer that can indicate the correct CO2 concentrations of welding gas mixtures during typical weld operations. In addition, it is important that the gas analyzer used complies with industry-leading AWS standards; the CM-1650 will meet this criterion.

Weld Purge Monitors

Looking for welding purge monitor solutions? CO2Meter provides weld purge monitors to continuously analyze gas levels during the welding process and ensure no leaks, occur. This insures perfect, oxide-free, zero-color welds. Click Here to Learn More.
