With fully certified technology being necessary to improve the quality, quantity and safety in the chemicals and petrochemicals environment, integrated gas and welding distributor Unique Welding works with international suppliers and original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to ensure that the products it supplies into the industry are reliable.
Being selected as a supplier to the petrochemicals industry comes with many responsibilities. Most significantly is the commitment to supply equipment – from electrodes, to regulators, to welding machines and beyond – that complies with the most meticulous international safety standards.
When it comes to consumables, Unique Welding is the sole distribution agency in South Africa for the premium brand of welding electrodes, Exaton. These exceptional electrodes deliver consistent weld quality in the harshest of environments.
Aside from their notable quality, the Exaton range of electrodes have been fully tested and hold the correct certification to enable them to be used in petrochemicals plants in South Africa.
Without the correct testing and certification, products cannot be deemed safe for use in severe environments, where putting the lives of employees at risk is unacceptable, and it is incredibly difficult to get products approved by these heavy industrial industries.
Aside from electrodes, Unique Welding supplies the Thermamax powered, air-purifying respirator (PAPR) system, which is a type of personal protective equipment that protects welders from poisonous welding fumes.
The PAPR system purifies air by sucking it through a series of specific air filters, subsequently delivering clean, purified air into the helmet for the welder to breathe. Further, this system alerts the user when the air filter is clogged, and needs to be replaced, ensuring that the filtered air provided is always free from impurities.
Other fundamental pieces of equipment that Unique Welding supplies into the petrochemicals industry are gas regulators. Standards for regulators are particularly rigorous, requiring that the regulator as well as the gauges are ISO certified, and in some case
In these instances, Unique Welding works with international OEMs, as well as fully certified international suppliers to provide a selection of accredited ranges to choose from.
