What are the benefits of a water cooled tig
A water cooled tig welder has 2 main benefits
1: It allows you to use a lightweight torch at high amperages
especailly suited for production tig welding. You can tig weld with an
air cooled torch at high amperages but the torches are quite bulky and
heavy for the operator.
2: An air cooled tig torch can get quite hot and become uncomfortable
for the operator, a water cooled torch runs a lot cooler therefore is
much more conformtable for the operator.
A water cooled tig welding system comprises of the tig welder power
source and a separate water cooler unit which gets its power direct
from auxillary power socket on rear of Tig Welder. So when you turn on the tig welder
the water cooler comes on automatically. This stops nuisance torch
burn outs when the water cooler is powered from a separate 13A plug
and the user forgets to turn it on with the tig welder.
There are many different tig torches to suit different applications, if
you unsure what torch/system you require please give us a call and we
can advise you what is best for you job.
