Welding defects such as porosity and hydrogen embrittlement can be traced to the presence of moisture in the coating of TIG filler wire, as well as other contaminants like grease, dust and dirt.  Moisture in particular can be picked up quite readily as soon as wire (spooled GMAW and straight-length GTAW welding wire) is exposed to sudden changes of  temperature and atmospheric moisture (humidity).  This moisture will create an oxide layer on the surface of the wire which will adversely affect welds and cause costly rework.  A clean, dry, heated environment provides the most favorable conditions for safely storing TIG filler rods, and our storage ovens provide the ultimate solution for any GTAW operation.  We are dedicated to our customers and focused on providing the best solutions for storing TIG filler material used in GTAW and GMAW processes.

Where are Keen TIG filler wire storage products manufactured ?

We manufacture all of our TIG filler wire storage ovens,  TIG filler rod cabinets and all other products in the USA.  Our facility is located in Hammond, Louisiana and we have been producing products for the worldwide welding industry since 1923.  Although it has undergone several expansions, we still operate in the same facility as we did almost one hundred years ago.  Our team has always been and remains dedicated to the welding industry – one of the great industrial trades.

What is the purpose of Keen TIG filler wire ovens and TIG filler rod storage cabinets?

For those companies that seek to establish procedures for filler material preparation before welding and to implement good practices to avoid contaminants that cause adverse effects in the final weld, Keen TIG filler wire storage ovens and cabinets provide an ideal solution in a variety of ways.  Using our TIG filler rod storage ovens provides continuous, heated storage at low temperatures which is an ideal environment for TIG filler rods and wire because the problem of humidity is eliminated.  Many customers store their TIG straight length and cut to length filler wire in the factory packaging  inside the oven, and even at 150F the humidity level is negligible.  The key is evenly distributed heat across the entirety of all TIG filler wire being stored, an impossibility using less effective heating methods such as cabinet with a light bulb.   Maintaining cleanliness of filler materials and by providing your clients proof of compliance with specific welding codes demonstrates that your filler material preparation control procedures are thorough and professional. 

Why choose Keen Ovens?

We have been developing innovative welding consumable storage products in the USA for almost 100 years .  Over the decades, as many industries flourished and the welding industry in general experienced changes and growth, Keen has been there providing solutions for all types of welding professionals seeking to enhance and improve their processes.  The variety and depth of our product line represents the evolution the welding industry has experienced over the decades, and exemplifies our dedication to the welding industry as a whole.   Customers choose Keen because we have a solution for almost any requirement when it comes to welding consumable storage.

Can you describe your manufacturing process at Keen Ovens?

Our process begins with the customer.  We utilize the latest in 3D CAD/CAM technology to produce our designs.  Many of our products have been custom designed for a specific customer’s need, only to later become a standard product that is sought out by other customers with similar requirements.  Our ability to customize has driven our product line growth as we catered to the unique needs of industries and customers.   Implementing the latest in ERP software has streamlined our processes, and we produce our assemblies from American-made steel through all fabrication processes including punching, forming, welding, assembly, powder coating and baking testing and so on.  Everything we produce is made in the USA at our facility in Hammond, LA.

What are common storage and handling mistakes that can lead to contaminated GTAW filler material?

Control of  GTAW TIG filler material is an essential part of the entire welding process and is often overlooked.   Atmospheric moisture and hydrocarbons found in lubricants can contaminate TIG filler material and enter the final weld causing worm holes and porosity.   It is important to establish procedures for proper storage and control of TIG filler rods to prevent adverse effects;  avoiding moisture, dust, oils, handling with unclean hands, dirty boxes, etc. is critical to prevent corrosion in filler materials . Proper TIG filler wire storage can also reduce pre-weld preparation time and improve efficiency downstream.

Can you describe the different types of TIG filler wire storage products manufactured at Keen Ovens?

Our TIG filler wire storage products category comprises a wide variety of capacities which demonstrates the unique needs of GTAW welding professionals.  From the portable KT-50-36 to the forced-convection KT-20FC-36, Keen TIG GTAW TIG filler rod storage ovens can be very different and are suited to specialized requirements.  Our standard KT-99 available in 3 shelving configurations is very popular with the growing aerospace and aviation market, two industries in which both weld quality and proper TIG filler rod storage are crucial.  We offer several small capacity models like the KT-4-36 and K-360-36 which are dependable bench top models, and the KT-54NH and KT-30NH are heavy-duty unheated storage cabinets for simple organizational needs and to keep dust and over handling away from the TIG filler wire.  The TIG filler wire storage cabinets are also lockable.

Why does Keen offer TIG filler wire storage ovens with inert gas purging functionality?

For the ultimate in contaminant-free storage, customers involved with critical welds sometimes choose the inert gas purge models like the kT-99NP and K-1000M&TNP.  Nitrogen and argon are the standard mediums for contamination-free storage because these gases are relatively inert – they neither react with stored materials nor carry moisture - and because they can be isolated and purified relatively inexpensively. Because argon and nitrogen have a lower-specific gravity than air, when introduced into the oven they immediately purge air that may contain contaminants or moisture. Keen inert gas purge welding ovens are often used for highly sensitive applications in the nuclear marine and aerospace industries.
