Supplier of Specialty Gases to the Metal Working Industry in Northern Illinois

PurityPlus® specialty gases and equipment are pretty much required for today’s increasingly polished specialty metal working, and Weldstar is the source providing them for all of Northern Illinois. Many Northern Illinois tasks in specialty welding and cutting need gases that conform to minimum purity standards, with certificates of analysis and conformity. Analytically correct gases with defined impurity specifications have always been the core of specialty gases and are appropriate regardless of whether the need 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).

Once often thought of as little more than toys reminiscent of the gizmos in 1964’s “Goldfinger” film, lasers nowadays are a common component of American manufacturing, notably in metal working. Precision laser cutting and welding place strict demands on the compositions and purities of the gases used in the processes, be they the now relatively ubiquitous carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and helium mixtures or specialty purpose-blended mixtures manufactured by PurityPlus®. And PurityPlus® Gases are but one component. Those working in metal need true gas pressures and flow rates. PurityPlus® gas devices, which include precision high-flow, two-stage regulators and flow meters, have the tight tolerances these manufacturing applications need. Besides that, the PurityPlus® specialty gas equipment line offers customer stations that keep under close scrutiny gas cylinder content. This purpose-built equipment can automatically “switch over” cylinders that are near-depleted to completely filled cylinders without requiring shut-down and change-out time, so the procedures don’t have to stop.
