TIG Torches & Accessories

Arc-Zone® Delivers Best in Class TIG Welding Products, Backed by Industry Leading Technical Service

TIG Torch Basics:
TIG torch models range from 50 Amp micro torches to 900 Amp automation torches.  For manual TIG welding you want a compact torch that is light in your hand and easy to maneuver. The most common models are the 9, (2 series) 125 Amp & 17 (3 series) 150 Amp air-cooled and the best selling 20 (2 series) 250 Amp water-cooled. 

Think of a TIG torch as a hand tool -- each torch model was designed for a specific welding job.  Based on your budget, Arc-Zone suggests having two torches, one for everyday jobs and a specialty torch for hard to reach jobs etc.  If you use a flex torch, you should have a spare torch body on hand as they often crack and break when you need them most!  

Note: You can run a TIG torch above the rated amperage, but it gets hotter the longer you use it, ultimately you will damage the torch body insulation material and that may lead to internal arcing and failure.

Air & Water-Cooled TIG Torches:

  • Air or Gas-cooled torches get hot and may require time to cool down between welds, they are bulky when compared to a water-cooled torch and are limited to 200 amps.  Air-cooled torches are great for jobsite, mobile and small shops, they are easy to install and maintain.
  • Water-cooled torches are best for continuous production, and high amperage welding jobs.  Water-cooled torches are compact, easy to handle and rated up to 500 amps.  Water-cooled torches require a city water-supply or a recirculating water cooler.

Front End Parts:
Gas cups, collets & collet bodies are important front end consumables that let you customize your torch for the welding job and material type.  TIG torch parts are packaged in quantities of 5 or 10.  Arc-Zone helps you save time and money with our industry leading Pro TIG Accessory Kits™ each kit is built with the highest quality parts, packaged in a divided box with lid card that identifies each part for easy re-order!  Arc-Zone Pro Kits - - discover what works best for the job, and reorder those parts, saving you time and money!

Machine Power, Water & Gas Connectors:
Arc-Zone delivers the largest selection of quality welding machine connectors, power blocks, extension kits, hook-up kits, gas hoses, gas & water couplers, y-valves & more. No matter if your welding machine is import or domestic, we have the parts and technical expertise to hook your TIG rig up right the first time!

Note: The majority of TIG torch packages do not include front end parts or a machine connector, so keep in mind they need to be ordered separately.
