Argon gas is used for shielding the welded portion during TIG welding process. During the TIG welding process, enormous heat is generated and the molten metal reacts with atmospheric oxygen, reducing the quality of the welded area. To prevent this, Argon gas, which is an inert gas, is used for shielding the welded area during the process. To work with pure argon gas for maintaining high quality welded products, a liquid argon gasification plant has been installed at the institute.
