TIG Welding for the Food Industry Course: download-pdf-d

Poor welding techniques in food production environments can lead to more problems than just a weld that is not pleasing to the eye.

As food product passes along conveyors, into cookers and through pipeline systems, a poorly welded joint can attract and retain bacteria or reduce the efficiency and flow of pressurised systems: Consequently, it is very important that welding is to a high standard.

Course Content

Our three day course ensures trainees:

  • Can identify and safely assemble the component parts of a TIG welding machine and torch.
  • Can set up and select the correct consumables and polarity to perform a series of welded joints.
  • Understand the principle of gas backing/back purging.
  • Prepare stainless steel for welding.
  • Manage distortion of a welded joint.
  • Perform a series of welded joints; employing techniques relevant to food production environments.
  • Recognise the need to be aware of Permits to Work and Hot Work Hazard Awareness.

  • Staff involved in the maintenance of food production facilities.
  • On-site contractors installing food production equipment.
  • Sub-contract engineers supplying goods for installation in a food production environment.
