argon cylinder

Argon has approximately the same solubility in water as oxygen, and is 2.5 times more soluble in water than nitrogen.It is used in some high-temperature industrial processes, where ordinarily non-reactive substances become reactive. For example, an argon atmosphere is used in graphite electric furnaces to prevent the graphite from burning.

uses and features

  • Argon is used in some high-temperature industrial processes, where ordinarily non-reactive substances become reactive. For example, an argon atmosphere is used in graphite electric furnaces to prevent the graphite from burning.
  • The high temperature preparation, refining and fabrication of many materials must be carried out in an argon atmosphere.
  • Argon is used as a shielding for GTAW applications and for GMAW of aluminium.
  • Argon is used for purging applications when an inert atmosphere is required.
  • Argon is used in plasma jet torches.
  • Argon is used in various types of arc welding such as gas metal arc welding and gas tungsten arc welding, as well as in the processing of titanium and other reactive elements..
  • Argon is sometimes used for extinguishing fires where damage to equipment is to be avoided.
