Is your Air-Cooled TIG torch too hot to handle? It may be time to think about upgrading to a water-cooled system. You’ll be able to use water-cooled torches that run much cooler and allow you to access higher amperages. Think of all the welding possibilities!
Water-Cooled TIG Torches
You may think you need to buy a fancy water cooler in order to use a water-cooled TIG torch, but that’s not necessarily true. Of course at Arc-Zone we wouldn’t mind if you purchased a welding water cooler from us–we do carry an extensive line of coolers from manufacturers like Binzel and Dynaflux. We even carry all the replacement parts you’ll need for repairs, including the Procon rotary vane pumps for welding water coolers.
Hook Up Kit for Your Water-Cooled TIG Torch
Other options for upgrading to a water-cooled TIG torch: build your own water cooler or connect directly to your city-supplied water.
Keep in mind you’ll need to maintain a water flow of one quart per minute at a maximum of 45 PSI (or risk blowing out the tiny water passages inside your TIG torch).
If you want to build your own water cooler, check out this story we wrote for Practical Welding Today, “A Tale of Two Welders.” Read about how George Bright, a welder in New Mexico, built his own water cooler using his wife’s old turkey roasting pan!
