Is it Important to Keep Your Welding Safe?

Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, together by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower-temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal. Properly maintaining the equipment for welding is essential to ensure the safety of the people using them as well as the people around them. One major equipment that plays an important role is the flashback arrestor which prevents a welding flashback. To properly maintain the equipment, flashback arrestor testing must be done once every six months or twelve months at most.
