Welding CO2 gas and alternative gas mixtures Webinar
February 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join us for a FREE Webinar for HERA Members only
There have been media reports about commercial CO2 gas supply shortage following the closure of the Todd Energy Kapuni gas plant in Taranaki for safety reasons. While those in the food production and craft beer manufacturing industries have been at the centre of the recent media there also be some implications for the welding CO2 supply.
Welding grade CO2 gas and gas mixtures that include CO2 are critical for the welding fabrication industry. Some of the fabricators have experienced a significant cost increase for CO2 gas. While using CO2 welding gas historically has been the cheapest option, a large number of fabricators have moved or considered moving to use Argon/ CO2 gas mixtures for GMAW.
This webinar will provide some background information on the use of welding CO2 gas and Argon-based gas mixtures and the issues to be taken into account while considering alternative gases. It will also provide a forum for discussions.
- Application of CO2 and Argon-based gas mixtures
- Changing from CO2 to Argon-based gas – what’s to be considered?
- Panel discussion and Q&A
