Florence, SC (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
ESAB’s Global Center of Excellence for Gas Apparatus in Florence, South Carolina announces the introduction of a new and improved line of combination cutting torches as part of the new Purox Elite Series of gas apparatus products.
The new Purox Elite Series Combination Torch includes the WH-4200 welding handle and the CA-4200 cutting attachment. The torch welds material up to 1-inch thick, and cuts up to 8 inches in thickness.
The torch delivers superior safety with its tubeless extruded handle that minimizes the potential of gases mixing in the handle. This tubeless handle design, along with the torch’s head injector, contains any flashback that could occur at the furthest point from the user. Flashbacks typically occur at the point where the fuel gas and oxygen mix together – ESAB’s design contains this mixture in a safer location in the torch.
This tubeless design is stronger than torches with individual gas tubes, which increases the torch’s durability.
The new Purox Elite Series Combination Torch features color-coded pressure adjustment knobs for quick and easy identification of gases, and the torch is properly weighted for comfort and reduced operator fatigue.
The Purox Elite CA-4200 Cutting Attachment features an internal tip nut to keep the cutting tip seated, thereby reducing the risk of leaks. This unique design also protects the threads on the head of the cutting attachment from damage while changing tips. The piston-style attachment makes it easy to connect to the welding handle, increasing the safety benefits.
The Purox Elite Cutting Attachment features a 3-tube design, making it stronger, and offering the highest cutting capacity of any medium-duty combination torch on the market with alternate fuel gases.
The CA-4200 Cutting Attachment includes “ease-on” control of cutting oxygen which reduces the potential for blowback when piercing.
Both the Purox Elite CA-4200 Cutting Attachment and the Purox Elite WH-4200 Welding Handle are compatible with the Purox W-300 handle and CW-300 cutting attachment.
The Purox Elite Series product line includes welding handles, cutting attachments, hand cutting torches, regulators, and complete outfits. The products will be launched initially in North America, England, and South Africa, followed by release to all global markets.
All Purox Elite Series products sold in North America are backed by ESAB’s 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. ESAB guarantees complete satisfaction with the product for the first 100 days of ownership.
