WATER- A WELDER’S LIFE FORCE

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 11.44.18 AM
Anyone stepping up to higher amperage needs a water-cooled system to keep productivity high and tools in tip top shape. Excessive heat quickly degrades your torch and consumables. Essential components of a water-cooled welding rig include: water-cooler, compact torches, connectors, & vane-style water pumps. Questions??? Give us a shout – We’re here to help!

STOP MELTING YOUR TORCH

BLOG-Water-Cooling-System
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!

LAST CHANCE TO SAVE $75
