Many different types of welding require different maintenance. However, there are types that have things in common such as the requirement of flashback arrestor testing. This procedure must be done at least once every six months or twelve months at most.

It is stated in Australian Standards AS4603 that the checking and maintenance of flashback arrestors must be done twice within a year. This will ensure the safety of the people working around the vicinity for weld and safety are two things that always come together.
