Modular Versatile Inflatable Bladder System For pipe Purging
The revolutionary, patent-pending I-Purge Modular Inflatable Bladder System is the most innovative and versatile pipe purging system available. I-Purge creates an impermeable seal to consume the least amount of purge gas during pipe purging and welding, saving time and money, while achieving consistent, high-quality welds.
Manufactured in the USA, this long-term, reusable bladder system enables operators to satisfy a myriad of purge requirements with one interchangeable solution. The I-Purge comes equipped with several highly advanced features such as its Quick Connect Fittings that snap-in place and allow easy assembly and disassembly of components. The I-Purge also features an extended length, high heat resistant harness that allows the bladders to be placed outside the heat affected zone and can also sufficiently accommodate any pre-heating or high heat applications.
These state-of-the-art features allow the operator to create multiple configurations, including a one sided pipe stopper and a reducer. Bladders are available in sizes ranging from 2 to 48″ (51- 1219 mm) and may be purchased either individually or as a complete system, a distinct advantage should additional sizes be desired or a component need replacing.
Ideal for fabrication shops, the I-Purge surpasses existing technology with its advanced design and provides the complete solution for all pipe purging needs.
