A critical component of welding safety is the maintenance of flashback arrestors, essential safety devices in oxy-fuel welding and cutting systems. We discuss the importance of regular checks, cleaning, and testing procedures to guarantee the functionality of these vital components and prevent potentially catastrophic incidents.

Moving beyond maintenance, we delve into the realm of testing procedures and standards in welding, both non-destructive and destructive. From visual inspections to ultrasonic and magnetic particle testing, we outline the various methods employed to ensure the quality and integrity of welds, in accordance with Australian standards and codes of practice.
