The use of inert gases plays an important role in modern welding processes. The welding will be performed in an inert gas protected atmosphere. Monitoring oxygen is essential to produce high yield and improve the weld quality as excess oxygen will be detrimental to the weld seam.

|Protecting welds from atmospheric (oxygen) contamination by purging the area immediately around the weld with inert gases is essential to enhancing quality and reducing costs. Common problems include coking, oxidation and discoloration during TIG welding process, titanium fabrication and welding of stainless steel pipes, tubes and tanks.||10 ppm to 20.9%||N2, Ar||
