SuperFlash flashback arrestors are UL and BAM approved, 100% tested for reverse flow, leak  integrity and flashback protection with actual flashbacks, and contain a built-in 100 micron inlet  filter, reverse flow check valve, 3-5 micron flame barrier, and a thermal shutoff valve in our point of supply models. So you can be sure that not only are you getting enough gas flow, you are  getting the highest quality safety device available. SuperFlash flashback arrestors are the worldwide leader in quality and functionality. DO ALL FLAME BARRIERS PROVIDE THE SAME LEVEL OF PROTECTION? No, all flame barriers are not created equal. Flame barriers can be made of different materials and have different micron openings. The flame barrier needs to be made a material that will extinguish fires and have the right size openings to allow gas through—but not a flashback. If the micron openings are too large or the material is not correct—the flame barrier will not stop a flashback. SuperFlash flashback arrestors are made of high quality 3-5 micron stainless steel, and are 100% tested so they stop flashbacks every time. 100% Flashback Testing ensures our products work in real world situations. 3-5 micron stainless steel flame barriers stop flashbacks. Other brands have larger microns and less effective materials, that might not stop flashbacks every time. 100 micron inlet filter keeps contaminants out and increases service life by as much as

By Dave Marquard March 20, 2020 “We can't all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by.”--- Mark Twain Some things don’t change.  Mark Twain’s sense of humor causes laughter today just as it did 140 years ago. Even today he is often lauded as the greatest humorist in American history.  I am sure he would have had a funny take on our modern welding technology if he were alive today. Reputations have a way of sticking through the ages.  I can imagine the type of humor Twain might have written had he known about robotic welding or additive manufacturing, for example. The jolt of cataclysmic historical events always passes and we move on from them. But we remember a lot about them. All WEMCO members remember 9/11 and where they were and how they heard about it.  All WEMCO members remember Columbine. The events passed and we recovered but the impact and change they caused altered our way of life in a permanent way. When was the last time any of us did not have to go through security at an airport? When was the last time we felt schools were completely safe for our children?  The events passed.  The impact and fallout from them lingers and stays with us. Now we are faced with another cataclysmic event that is changing our lives: the arrival of the Coronavirus.  This too won’t pass because it has changed us as much as 9/11 did.  Social distancing, hand sanitation, look

By Dave Marquard November, 2019 I had attended forty consecutive AWS Welding/Fabtech Shows until the streak was snapped a few weeks ago because of an important meeting elsewhere I had to attend.  No one can physically be in two places at the same time, although today’s technology allows us to “beam up” our presence from afar via electronic robot cameras.  It’s a technology my companies are investing heavily in because of the immense potential it has for allowing us to dramatically cut travel and expense costs. In my absence from physically being at Fabtech I thought a lot about what I missed most about it.  I missed walking  the aisles, meeting people  and seeing the latest welding technologies a lot—but oddly enough I also missed the entertaining shows I often  found while walking those aisles—especially the magicians hired by companies to attract people to their booths. Many magic tricks are based on illusions. The magician makes you think you saw something that didn’t happen. The hand is quicker than the eye, and artful magicians use distraction to their advantage in creating illusions that befuddle even the most observant individuals. My background and training as a cop probably makes me more observant than most.  Even today, decades since I left policework, I still notice open doors, broken windows, people in industrial uniforms, anything that might seem out of place as I drive through neigh

All the common welding and industrial gases found in the work place are hazardous when safety procedures and equipment are not used or ignored. Welding and industrial gas safety requires training and equipment which is readily available from gas and welding equipment

By Dave Marquard, WEMCO Tech Chair June 8, 2019 –  Curiosity has often driven me to action.  In 1982 I purchased one of the world’s first portable computers, the Osborne 1.  It weighed almost 25 pounds and didn’t have an on-board battery. It had to be plugged into a wall outlet to power up and use.  However, it was still classified as a portable computer because it could be hand-carried.  The Osborne 1 shipped with a large bundle of software worth almost as much as the computer.  That software included some of the most powerful and pioneering programs of the day such as D-Base2 for data sorting; SuperCal, an early spreadsheet, and WordStar, a leading word processor application that had a dominant market share that lasted until the mid-1980s.   I was a young VP at a small welding equipment manufacturing company, which while a market leader in its small niche, could never seem to break out of a slow growth cycle.  My new “computer aided” ability to process large amounts of data, prepare “what if” scenarios, and then sum it all up quickly in a word-processed proposal, was enormously helpful.  It enabled me to make a positive contribution to the company that impressed my superiors, peers, and subordinates.  The Osborne 1 enabled us to form teams that used its data enhancing speed benefits to efficiently develop new products.   By the end of

March 11, 2019 Category: IMixone, SuperFlash, Gas Mixer, IBEDA, Welding, Safety

iMixone with integrated high-pressure regulators and flow control Gas mixer with diffusion-mixing system for two gases with up to three pre-set mixing ratios, especially for welding processes. The SuperFlash iMixone is used, for example, in the production of mixed gases for protective gas welding and covers the most frequently used gas mixtures for the MIG, MAG, TIG welding. Due to the mixing principle, this mixer also ensures a constant gas mixture even if the volume of gas withdrawal changes. Avoid additional energy costs with the iMixone! ADVANTAGES High mixing precision even if the volume of gas withdrawal changes Up to 3 mixing ratios can be pre-set according to customer‘s requirement Cost savings due to the avoidance of storage of different premixes Gas inlet filters protect the device against contamination Diffusion-mixing principle, no power supply required Withdrawal of mixed gas from 5 l/min up to maximum capacity Sturdy, compact design Low maintenance EASY HANDLING Direct connection to gas cylinders Straightforward use due to two integrated high-pressure regulators and high-pressure hose Selector switch for selecting the pre-set mixture HIGH PROCESS RELIABILITY Does not depend on the input pressure difference due to integrated constant pressure regulation Does not depend on gas withdrawal variations Mixture production stops automatically when gas supply is interrupted For more information, please email
