Argon, Hydrostar, Industrial Gas, High Pressure Steel Q Style Cylinder, 74CF, 2000PSIG, CGA 350
The Praxair HydroStar shielding gas blends are primarily used for joining austenitic stainless steels utilizing the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW or TIG) process. Hydrogen increases heat input to the base materials while providing a reducing atmosphere to enhance weld cleanliness. Significant advantages in travel speed over pure argon can be attained.
Additions of 2-5% are generally used for manual TIG welding of stainless steel food service equipment, railings, and aerospace components. Hydrogen additions of 10-15% are generally used in the mechanized welding of austenitic stainless steel tubing.
