Welding Journal features Aquasol Corporation



North Tonawanda, NY –The Aquasol Corporation, an advanced and innovative manufacturer of water soluble consumables and other welding technologies, has recently been featured in the January 2016 issue of the Welding Journal.

November 9 – 12 Aquasol Corporation participated in the record setting Fabtech trade show in Chicago, IL. More than 1700 companies exhibited their technology, and their craft to over 43,836 attendees. Amongst all of those companies and products, Aquasol’s PRO OX-100 was chosen to be featured as a product of note in the January 2016 issue of the Welding Journal.

The CE approved PRO OX-100 is designed to expedite the purging process during high purity welding applications, measuring down to 100 PPM (0.01%) oxygen resolution.

Several advanced features help operators efficiently identify the ideal purge environment to create oxygen free welds, preventing discoloration and coking.

The self-calibrating PRO OX-100 is equipped with an internal pump that draws a sample from the purge chamber and relays its oxygen resolution value to the monitor. This method serves as an alternative to hand aspirated pumps, which demand more physical exertion and time from the operator and yield less accurate results. It also offers a built-in, programmable multi-language feature with on-screen instructions that are available in English, Spanish, German and Portuguese.

All units come with conversion software, which enables rapid capture and export of 50 data points to Microsoft Excel and plain text format. Therefore, data can be easily transferred to the user’s PC using a USB interface. Data collected from the oxygen monitor can then be stored and to meet the strictest quality control requirements of nuclear and other highly regulated industries. The Quality Management System of Aquasol Corporation meets the requirements of the international standard ISO 9001:2008.

Aquasol Launches Opti-Purge Fast Inflation Purge System for Large Pipe Diameters



North Tonawanda, NY –The Aquasol Corporation has designed the all new Opti-Purge Fast Inflatable Purge System to increase productivity when welding pipes 48″ (1219 mm) to 84″ (2133 mm) in diameter.

The Opti-Purge requires very little preparation as it’s unique, one-piece design consists of two outer rings and a hollow connector that quickly inflate to create an impermeable seal within the pipe wall.

In order to facilitate rapid purging of larger sizes pipes, the Opti-Purge is equipped with a tri-flow tubing system. This unique configuration includes a main hose that delivers inert gas to the purge chamber, an additional hose that expedites gas and an exhaust connection hose that monitors gases to ensure an O2-free environment.

The exterior of the unit’s hollow connector consists of high heat resistant material that can be exposed to temperatures up to 1004°F (540°C) to accommodate heat affected zone (HAZ). A reflective strip on the hollow connector conveniently indicates the center of the Opti-Purge, allowing for fast and accurate alignment of the system. Moreover, the hollow connector itself dramatically reduces the amount of inert gas needed to purge the weld zone by occupying space within the chamber, saving both time and money.

Aquasol Corporation Introduces SteelSpace® Socket Weld Spacer To Fabtech Community



North Tonawanda, NY –The Aquasol Corporation, an innovative welding supply manufacturer, is pleased to introduce SteelSpace® Socket Weld Spacer Rings to the Fabtech 2014 Community. Composed of Certified 316L Stainless Steel Material, SteelSpace® provides the pre-measured 1/16″ minimum gap for socket welding contractions required by ANSI 31.1, Section III ASME, and US Naval & Military Codes.

SteelSpace® is designed with spring action that allows the spacer to stay in place even when the socket is sideways or upside-down. Because the spacer is a solid ring with a hollow center, viewing is not compromised during socket welding. SteelSpace® is available in a variety of sizes ranging from ½″ to 2″ in diameter.

Unlike any other company, Aquasol® also offers SoluGap®, a water soluble spacer ring. Made of Aquasol® Water Soluble Board, it is compatible with any metal and dissolves completely and rapidly in most liquids.

″We provide the total solution for our clients offering both a certified 316L stainless steel and water soluble socket weld spacer ring. In certain circumstances, one is superior to the other, and other times it is a matter of preference. Customers can come to us for one, the other or both, ″ said Aquasol President, Mike Hacikyan.

SteelSpace® Stainless Steel Socket Weld Spacer Rings compliments the Aquasol® product line, which also consists of SoluGap® Water Soluble Socket Weld Spacer Rings, Aquasol® Water Soluble Paper and Tape, EZ Purge® Pre-formed Purge Dams, I-Purge® and I-Purge® X Modular Inflatable Bladder Systems, EZ Zone Tape® and EZ Tape® Aluminum Welding Tapes, the Pro OX®-100 Oxygen Monitor and SoluShim® Water Soluble Alignment Sticks.

New, Made in USA
I-Purge® Modular Bladder System Introduced



North Tonawanda, NY – The president of Aquasol Corporation Mike Hacikyan, has just announced the launch of the patent-pending I-Purge® and I-Purge® X Modular Inflatable Bladder Systems, the most innovative purging device to date. By far the most versatile and adaptable inflatable system available on today’s market, I-Purge and I-Purge X Modular System components combine to offer the welding industry more customized solutions for pipe purging than ever before.

Equipped with Aquasol’s unique Quick-Connect fittings, components easily snap on and off in seconds. A variety of standard harness lengths allow the user to customize length based on individual project needs, enabling placement of the bladders outside the heat-affected zone (HAZ). These flexible, high heat harnesses allow for navigation through elbows and T-joints, and have a central point marked with a luminescent indicator for easy alignment with the center of the root gap.

The I-Purge Modular System is comprised of two spark-resistant, inflatable bladders connected by a high-heat resistant bridge harness. Unlike other purge bladders with permanent fittings, Aquasol’s ground-breaking design allows for the creation of a pipe reducer by simply connecting two bladders of different, yet similar, diameters.

A tri-flow hose maximizes efficiency by enabling bladder inflation and quick flooding of the purge area with noble gas. An innovative tubing system provides separate connections for inflation of bladders along with introduction of inert gas to the weld zone to expedite the purging process. The inflated bladders create an airtight seal against the pipe walls and a superior barrier. Another connection enables monitoring of exhaust gases ensuring an oxygen-free environment. Aquasol’s patent-pending diffuser evenly distributes gas throughout the purge area, greatly reducing turbulence. Once the weld is complete the bladders can be deflated, extracted, cleaned, and stored in the convenient carrying bag provided with every system.

Yet another feature showcasing the system’s flexibility is the ability to modify the I-Purge with the Isolator™ Adaptor Kit into a one-sided plug. An isolator can be used to close off the end of a pipe for servicing, cleaning, inspection, or sealing.

The I–Purge Modular System can be used multiple times thanks to its durable construction and high quality components. Aquasol Corporation has again simplified the purging process with another unique, patent-pending product, providing the industry with most versatile option to date. Bladders are available in sizes ranging from 2″ to 48” and may be purchased either individually or as a complete system, a distinct advantage should a bladder need to be replaced.

The Aquasol Corporation is also the manufacturer of Aquasol® Water Soluble Paper and Tape; EZ Purge®, EZ Zone® Tape, Fiback™ Fiberglass Weld Backing Tape, OX-100X Oxygen Monitor, SoluGap™ Socket Weld Spacer Rings and SoluShim™ Alignment Sticks.
