High-Purity Pipe Welding: How to Weld High- and Ultra-Purity Piping

By Bio, Pharma, & Medical, Food & Beverage, Pipe Welding, Semi-Conductor No Comments

A high-purity weld is any weld that contains fewer than ten parts per million (ppm) of contaminants like oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. Ultra-high-purity welding keeps these contaminants below one ppm. High-purity and ultra-high-purity pipe welding are used in processes where cleanliness of the product is paramount, such as in semiconductor…
