PURE STREAM - a global offer for reducing exposure to fume emission

PURE STREAM - a global offer for reducing exposure to fume emission
Innovation

There are recent reports indicating that overexposure to some of the constituents of welding fume can cause respiratory problems and cancer. Already today there are national rules for each country which define the Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL) for fume emission.
For worker safety, employers must ensure employees are not overexposed to welding fume and stay under the applicable PEL.

Oerlikon, a leader in developing and producing welding equipment and consumables, has the right expertise to keep you informed and to bring you the best solutions for reducing the impact of welding fumes in your workshops.

Oerlikon presents its different solutions packaged as a global offer under the name Pure Stream. This customized offer consists of several solutions for reducing the exposure to welding fumes, which may include providing the welder with adequate protection such as fume extraction at the point of the welding or airflow masks with filters. But, the Pure Stream offer proposes several other solutions for companies who are ready to reconsider some elements in the production process such as:

  • Am I ready to change welding parameters?
  • Am I ready to change welding process?
  • Am I ready to change welding consumables?
  • Am I ready to invest in air treatment solutions?

Depending on the answers and the adaptability of the customer, Oerlikon can propose solutions such as:

  • High tech MIG/MAG equipment with synergic settings and arc transfer modes giving less fumes
  • Low fume welding consumables are available for certain applications
  • Electrodes and FCW with lower emission of Cr6+
  • Full range of air treatment solutions

PURE STREAM allows customers to choose the most appropriate solution for reducing exposure to welding fumes while taking constraints in production into consideration.​

Schweissen & Scheiden 2017 - OERLIKON presents several new products around productivity and welder’s environment

Schweissen & Scheiden 2017 - OERLIKON presents several new products around productivity and welder’s environment

From 25th to 29th September 2017, OERLIKON will participate at the Schweissen & Schneiden 2017 exhibition in Düsseldorf. This is an opportunity to come and visit us at stand N° D54, Hall 11 to discover our latest innovations in the field of welding and cutting technologies.

During the five days, customers will have the possibility to attend several conferences on 5 different themes organized by the OERLIKON experts:

  • Plasma Welding: How to increase productivity in welding of stainless steel
  • New Technology for producing Seamless Flux Cored Wires
  • Clearinox: new range of consumables for welding of stainless steel
  • Submerged Arc Welding of High Yield Strength Steels
  • Swan Cloud: Digitalizing all your welding activities

Please visit our website oerlikon-welding.com to find the detailed program as well as a possibility to register.

1.    Welding consumables:

1.1 Our seamless copper coated flux cored wire range FLUXOFIL has been extended with two products for offshore applications FLUXOFIL 22 & 23 HD.

This new range of rutile flux cored wires for welding of fine grain steels up to 460MPa, delivers reliable toughness behavior down to -60°, in compliance with NACE requirements.

Our latest technology of producing seamless flux cored wire delivers a copper coated wire with very low hydrogen content minimizing the risk of cold cracks. FLUXOFIL 22HD & FLUXOFIL 23HD are respectively designed to be used under mixed gas and 100% CO2.

1.2 CARBOFIL is the right choice of solid wires for all GMAW application. With more than 20 years of experience in solid wire production, Oerlikon provides you the most complete offer on the market.

  • CARBOFIL ELITE : the premium offer for most demanding customers for automatic or robotic applications - Also available in low temperature version
  • CARBOFIL GOLD : the best compromise between quality and price
  • CARBOFIL PLATINUM : the copper free solution
  • CARBOFIL : the solution for ‘everyday use’

This dedicated offer, adapted to infrastructure, general construction, earthmoving or automotive is available in standard spools and in drums from 300 to 600kg.

1.3 CLEARINOX: Low Hexavalent Chromium Stick Electrods and Flux Cored wires range

Welding of stainless steel exposes welders to fumes that contain fumes Hexavalent Chromium, classified as CMR since 2014. The best way to reduce the Cr6+ and the fume emission is to act at the source, and OERLIKON is proud to introduce an innovate range of consumables which will reduce welders exposure to welding fume and emission of Cr6+.

Tests done at TWI in Cambridge, UK show that with the CLERAINOX E (electrodes) and CLEARINOX F (flux cored wire), the exposure to Cr6+ is reduced with up to 60% vs using any other electrodes or FCW for welding stainless steel. A reduction of fume emissions in general with up to 40% is also observed. The range of CLEARINOX exists for stainless grades 308L, 316L & 309L.

2.    MIG-MAG welding equipment (manual & automatic):

2.1 CITOWAVE III a welding machine based on the latest inverter technology, giving an important reduction of primary consumption (only 18.5A for WAVE III 520), representing more than a 30% saving of the annual electric bill compared to using a classic MIG-MAG machine.  WAVE III has the "Eco Friendly welding and cutting" label. This label is awarded by Oerlikon to products that contribute to a sustainable development and/or ensuring better working conditions for the welders.

The two versions, delivering welding current from 5 to 400A or 500A, has excellent welding caracteristics including the Speed Short Arc transfer mode, HPS and Advanced Sequencer. CITOWAVE III is easily controlled through the ergonomic and user friendly interface and customers that want to benefit from a complete tracability of welding parameters can add the SWAN software to the equipment..

New in 2017 : CITOWAVE III is now easy to integrate on robot with a specific “Plug&Play” package. and the possibility to add a the new arc transfer PCM (Pure controlled metal), allowing to weld root pass and thin materials with reduced deformation

2.2  CITOSTEP 250/300/350/450 is a new range of step controlled MIG/MAG welding installations with a synergic setting of the welding parameters.

Robust and reliable, they are equipped with an innovative Easy Synergic Program (ESP) for an easy set up of the equipment in order to obtain an optimized result for any given application. Particularly suitable for all type of metallic construction, these machines are able to weld solid wires and flux cored wires for all main applications.

 

3.       Global Offer:

PURE STREAM is a customized offer and also an initiative to reduce the exposure of welding fumes to welders.

In order to limit the exposure of welding fumes to its welders, manufacturing companies might have to reconsider some elements in the production process, i.e welding processes & parameters, type of consumables or implementation of fume extraction.

OERLIKON, a leader in developing and producing welding equipment and consumables, has the right expertise to keep bring customers the most adequate solution adapted to their specific situation and constraints.

 

OERLIKON, brand of international reputation and leading player in the development of welding and cutting technologies, offers the customers in steel and metal working industries a a full range of arc welding filler materials as well as a complete portfolio of welding and cutting equipment and related services. Through our various centers of excellence for research, development and industrialization, OERLIKON pursues continuous innovation, constantly striving to improve the performance, productivity, safety and comfort of operators.
