Supplier of Specialty Gases to the Metal Working Industry in Western Michigan The growing artistry of specialty metal working nowadays requires PurityPlus® specialty gases and equipment from GTW. A great number of Western Michigan applications in specialty welding and cutting require gases that meet minimum purity standards, with certificates of analysis and conformity. Analytically correct gases with well-established impurity specifications have always been essential specialty gases and are well suited no matter if the requirement is for high-purity Argon for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW or “TIG”) or close-tolerance multi-component gas mixtures of Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Helium, and Argon for Gas Metal Arc (GMAW or “MIG”) and Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW). Previously thought of as no better than toys reminiscent of the gizmos in 1964’s “Goldfinger” flick, lasers today are an accepted element of American manufacturing, notably in metal working. Precision laser cutting and welding place strict demands on the compositions and purities of the gases utilized during the procedures, be they the now relatively ubiquitous carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and helium mixtures or specialty purpose-blended mixtures manufactured by PurityPlus®. And PurityPlus® Gases are just a single component. Metal working users require precise gas pressures and flow rates. PurityPlus® gas apparatus, such as precision high-flow, two-stage regulators and flow meters, enable the constrained tolerances these manufacturing applications require. Also, the PurityPlus® specialty gas equipment line provides customer stations that maintain a watch on gas cylinder content. This purpose-built equipment can automatically “switch over” cylinders that are running low to fully loaded cylinders with no shut-down and change-out time, so the procedures continue uninterrupted.
