The Benefits And Uses Of A Colorless, Odorless Gas Called Argon

Meet argon gas! Argon gas is a colorless, odorless gas that’s a friend to welders, window manufacturers, neon light makers, anthropologists and the list goes on. Argon gas not only has a lot of uses, but it’s the most abundant and least expensive of the noble gasses. That’s not the only thing that makes this industrial gas so versatile.

Neon lights in a city are filled with Argon, a colorless ordorless gas.Argon is an inert, colorless, odorless gas, both when it’s in gas and liquid form, which makes it, what’s called a “noble gas.” Because argon is inert, it protects materials from oxygen and other gases in processes that need a non-reactive atmosphere. It’s used as a shielding gas in welding, as an insulator, preserving historical documents, in gas-filled tube lights and so much more. It has so many uses because it doesn’t react with other compounds or elements, even under high heat. Fundamentally, it won’t erode or destroy whatever it’s used for or used to protect.

Caution Must Still Be Taken When Using Argon

Since it’s a colorless and odorless gas, it can be easily inhaled, so there is a suffocation risk. Caution must be taken when using argon. Fortunately, if your workspace has proper ventilation, the risk is low because argon easily dissipates when adequately ventilated. So it’s important to make sure your ventilation system is working correctly. Also, you should take the same precautions with liquid argon as you would with liquid nitrogen or ‘dry ice.’ Both liquids can cause a kind of burn because they’re icy cold in their liquid state.

The Benefits Of Using CO2 Argon Mixtures In MIG, MAG And TIG Welding

CO2 is one of the most commonly used reactive gases in TIG, MIG and MAG welding. It’s the least expensive of the shielding gases Welder using CO2 Argon mixtures.and can be used in its pure form without an inert gas. Argon is another commonly used shielding gas that produces a narrower penetration profile, which offers a clean, small and robust joint weld. The combination of argon and CO2 provides both an inexpensive, accurate and clean weld. Here are some other gases that are effective in argon and CO2 argon mixtures.

Helium– Helium is a shielding gas used in MAG, TIG and MIG welding. It’s commonly utilized for copper, aluminum, high-alloy austenitic steels and non-austenitic steels.

Hydrogen– Hydrogen is a root shielding gas that can be used as a combustion gas and carrier gas, depending on the application. It is also used in mechanized and automated MAG and TIG welding of high-alloy steel and Cr-Ni-Mo Austenitic stainless steel.

Nitrogen– Nitrogen gas, often mixed with hydrogen, is used as a root shielding gas for austenitic stainless steels, high-alloy steels, low alloy steels and non-alloy steels.

Oxygen– Oxygen is a shielding gas used in aluminum, mild carbon, low alloy and stainless steel MAG and TIG welding. It is a reactive gas that is used in concentrations of nine percent or less. This improves the penetration, arc stability and weld pool fluidity.
