The construction sector makes the utmost use of welding/shielding gas owing to its growing usage in welding processes namely tungsten metal arc welding, metal gas arc welding and shielded arc welding.
For larger structures inert gas shielded processes, such as metal inert gas arc welding (MIG) or tungsten inert gas arc welding (TIG) are more commonly used.
Tungsten inert gas arc welding is a process in which the source of heat is an arc formed between a nonconsumable tungsten electrode and the work piece, and the molten puddle are protected from the atmospheric contamination with a gaseous shield of inert gas such as argon, helium or argon-helium mixture.
