SHUR-PURGE prefabricated, water-soluble purge dams are designed to provide a positive inert gas purge for use in welding of piping where an inert gas is required.

SHUR-PURGE is prefabricated from high-quality materials, and its cone shape design ensures a positive purge, minimizes risk of oxidation (Fig.1), and aids in the prevention of costly repairs familiar with an ineffective gas purge.
