Following the TIG Brush’s US debut at Fabtech 2013, Ensitech® presented raffle prizes and training to Mr. Jon Kilgore and staff at the University of Minnesota CSE Machine Shop which designs, fabricates, welds, and repairs prototype and scientific research equipment.

Ensitech is happy to announce that it recently awarded Fabtech raffle winner Mr. Jon Kilgore, Managing Research Engineer at the University of Minnesota CSE Machine Shop, with a number of prizes including the TIG Brush® TBE-250 Stainless Steel Weld Cleaning System. The prizes were presented by Ensitech’s Marketing Director, John Perrin, along with a staff training session on how to use the TIG Brush® as well as the accompanying Ensitech Surface Finishing System® fluids.

Items donated by Ensitech® as part of the Fabtech raffle prize include:

  •     TIG Brush TBE-250
  • Glove, Goggles and Micro-Fiber Cloths
  • 1 Quart TB-25 Weld Cleaning Fluid for Stainless Steel
  • 1 Gallon B-25
  • 1 Sample Pack of Ensitech Surface Finishing System Fluids
  • 1 Quart TB-50 Finishing Fluid for Stainless Steel
  • 1 Dual Brush Adaptor
  • 2 Brush Tip Packs (10 brush tips per pack)

In addition to Mr. Kilgore, the entire staff at The University of Minnesota CSE Machine Shop were eager to learn more about the capabilities of the Ensitech Surface Finishing System. Following the training demonstration, the staff was very enthusiastic about the TIG Brush’s weld cleaning & passivation capabilities to the extent that it sparked a discussion about new ways in which they would like to use it for future high-quality fabrication, welding and repair work.

Essential to these capabilities are the system’s proprietary electro-chemical process, combining low-toxicity fluids with a patented power supply and unique brush design which veritably serves to protect the weld against corrosion to the extent that the corrosion rate is reduced to below that of unwelded stainless steel*. Furthermore, the Ensitech Surface Finishing System® provides welders a choice of four innovative cleaning fluids, plus dedicated fluids ranging from pre-weld preparation to finishing and marking, leaving fabricators covered at every step of the welding process.

Utilized by several industry-leading companies including Nestle, Bechtel, Boeing and Shell, the TIG Brush® has been rapidly adopted as the preferred weld-cleaning technology of quality and safety-conscious companies in the Food & Beverage, Oil & Gas, Defense, Chemical & Mining, Water Treatment, Energy and Construction industries across the globe.
