Welding & Manufacturing

Engineering great things with Mixed Gas

Mixed gases are invaluable to Welding and Manufacturing. The correct gas mix can greatly improve the quality of the manufacturing processes for engineers.

Manufacturing processes generally require higher flow mixed gas. So in most cases the gases themselves are delivered in bulk as liquid supplies. It is common to have bulk delivery of one gas and maybe a multi-cylinder pack of another. This is especially if it represents a small part of the final mix. However in either case, a Gas Mixer of some kind will provide the final mix that the customer needs.

BSL have been supplying Gas Mixers and Gas Analysers to the specialists in industrial Gas Mixing Applications for many years.

With many of our solutions we attempt to help everyone in the process to install the most appropriate system possible. We try to take the mystery out of Gas Mixing and this keeps things simple. With that in mind, it means we try not to over complicate the solution and reduce the overall cost of ownership.

In particular we try to remove any electrical content where possible and equally to remove the need for buffer tanks after the Gas Mixer.

By removing the need for electronics and the buffer tank, we have a simple solution that is already set and waiting to go. The gas mix is certified at the point that it leaves our factory. Installation is a very simple job. The gas mixing units themselves remain very easy to look after throughout their life cycle. With no electrics and no buffer tank, the cost to look after the equipment is extremely low and of course there are no solenoid valves to fail on you over time.

We satisfy many of our customers requirements with pre-set gas mixer units, although adjustable units are available too. We have standard modules up to 250 and 300 nm3/hr for many applications, although our range includes systems up to 1000 nm3/hr.

Mobile Welding

Our MW Gas mixer panels are mobile enough to go anywhere you need it to be! That’s why it’s great for structural steel welding. It can be configured into a high flow welding station with the use of pure liquid gas cylinders mounted on a mobile skid unit.

This one gas mixer panel can supply up to 50 welders. It allows you to have one pre-set mixed gas outlet and a pure gas outlet. Our equipment doesn’t require a buffer tank either, saving on space.

You can also save money on your gas cylinders as we recommend using pure liquid gas cylinders as you get more gas for your money. The mobile skid unit allows you to get large volumes of mixed gas to where you need it, more economically and safely.

Have you ever needed shielding gases on site, but permanent tanks weren’t viable?

This panel comes equipped with an audible alarm in case of mixed gas low pressure. You have a choice of running the alarm internally or externally. Internally, a battery can be fitted to run the alarm system. Or you could run it off an external power supply to a remote alarm repeater, if you wanted.

The MW Mix has pressure relief valves fitted to the inlets and outlets to give your process maximum protection. It also has sample points for gas analysis. The flexi hosing offers durability while traveling around site. And because this gas mixing panel is designed to be outside, it has some weatherproofing to protect the electrical parts.

The MW Mix uses our proven mechanical gas mixing technology as its basis in unification with our engineering know how, to give you the best solution.

BSL operate a quality management system accredited to ISO 9001:2015, for the design, manufacture and refurbishment and supply of industrial gas mixing systems, gas flow control equipment and air separation systems for the beverage, food, manufacturing and associated industries.
