Florence, SC (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
ESAB’s Global Center of Excellence for Gas Apparatus in Florence, South Carolina offers the new Purox Elite product line in four complete outfits.
The new Purox Elite line was launched in 2012 and is ESAB’s new and improved line of gas apparatus products. The line includes welding handles, cutting attachments, hand cutting torches, regulators, and four complete outfits. The Purox Elite Series product line features the top-of-the-line quality, performance, and durability ESAB customers have come to expect, while adding updated safety and design features.
Each outfit includes the Purox Elite Combination Torch (WH-4200 welding handle and CA-4200 cutting attachment), which welds material up to 1-inch thick, and cuts up to 8 inches in thickness. The WH-4200 welding handle features a tubeless extruded handle that minimizes the potential of gases mixing in the handle.
The CA-4200 cutting attachment features ESAB’s Swirl Injector, which swirls the oxygen to create a superior homogenous mixture of gas in the entrainment zone. This mixture increases efficiency and delivers optimum performance not possible with equal pressure or tip mixers.
The swirling high-pressure oxygen mixes with the fuel gas to create a pumping action that pulls a vacuum on the torch to improve performance with long hoses and low-pressure operations.
Also included in the Purox Elite outfits is the Purox Elite Series R-720 Regulator. Purox oxygen regulators were the first in the industry to include patented technology to contain oxygen regulator fires.
Extensive tests with simulated operator misuse, show ESAB regulators were more effective at minimizing the risk of personal injury than any other brand’s single- or two-stage regulators that were tested. It is impossible to guarantee that an explosion will not occur when a regulator is used contrary to any manufacturer’s warnings and instructions. However, after years of research and development, ESAB’s patented Regulator Burnout technology makes a cylinder explosion more likely to be contained if a regulator is misused.
The Purox Elite Series Metal Master Select Outfit is designed for cutting applications up to 1.5”. Three different versions are available for use with acetylene or alternate fuel gases. The outfit includes the Purox Elite combination torch, oxygen and fuel gas regulators, cutting tip, and accessories.
The Purox Elite Series Metal Master Champion outfit cuts up to 1.5” and heats up to 44,000 btu/hr. using 30 cfh acetylene. The outfit includes the Purox Elite combination torch, oxygen and fuel gas regulators, cutting tip, welding head, and accessories.
The Purox Elite Series Metal Master II outfit cuts up to 1.5” and welds up to 1/8” using 9 cfh acetylene. The outfit includes the Purox Elite combination torch, oxygen and fuel gas regulators, cutting tip, heating head, and accessories.
The Purox Elite Series Metal Master III outfit is a do-it-all kit that cuts up to 1.5”, heats up to 44,000 btu/hr. using 30 cfh acetylene, and welds up to 1/8” using 9 cfh acetylene. The outfit includes the Purox Elite combination torch, oxygen and fuel gas regulators, cutting tip, heating head, welding head, and accessories.
