Product Description

Monster12™ Flooding Cup Kit (Select Electrode Size From Drop Down Menu Above)

Monster-Size Your Kit!  Get a second #12 Monster Nozzle with Installed Screen Stack for only $25--That's over 20% Savings!!! 

Monster12™ TIG Nozzle Kit. #12 = 3/4" (19.05mm) Orifice x 1" (25.4mm) Long.  Cup kit engineered to deliver a coherent stream of shielding gas for improved weld-quality, consistency and reduced post weld clean-up.

If you're welding exotic materials such as Titanium, Inconel, Hastelloy, Monel, Stainless Steel, Chromoly, Docol R8, etc., then these cups may be exactly what you need to improve gas coverage, arc stability, tungsten stick-out, and visibility. Best of all, they are a small compact package that won’t weigh down your torch.

Monster™ Nozzles are a proven design used by top metal fabricators worldwide and outperform all of “the other guys’” flooding cups on the market.

  • Thread-on nozzle design for solid torch mounting with no wobbles, slippage or gas leaks
  • Proprietary diffuser screen stack is precision-machined from super alloys (no dissimilar metals)
  • No o-rings required - cup securely mounts to Teflon heat shield, no gas leaks, no high-freq arc-outs
  • No unnecessary add-on shields or protectors required
  • Consistent supply from a trusted company (TIG accessories is what we do - every day)
  • Readily available from local gas suppliers
  • Fair pricing for a high-quality product

Kit Includes:

Note: To insure you get consistent performance, Monster™ TIG nozzles are ONLY sold in conjunction with Arc-Zone's Performance Proven™ torch parts.

Arc-Zone does not make any claims or guarantees of weld-quality improvements, or level of shield gas coverage. Results may vary, due to: weld station set-up, material preparation, gas quality, gas flow rates, flow meter type, gas hose material, welding machine, TIG torch, operator’s torch handling technique, etc.  

Monster™ #12, #14 & #16 Cup Best Practices, Set-Up Tips, Do's & Don'ts!
 -  The Monster™ Cup works best with Arc-Zone's flow-tested gas lens collet bodies.
 -  The Monster™ Cup is designed for Argon flow rates between 15-30 CFH (cubic feet hour).
 -  Do Not Exceed 175 amps for extended periods of time!
 -  The Monster™ Cup is Not designed for welding with AC current!
 -  Minimum tungsten stickout of 3/4" (19mm) -- Shorter stickout may result in damage (arc-out) to the screen stack.
 -  Use a medium or short back cap ONLY. Long back caps are known to cause gas inconsistencies due to trapped atmosphere in the top of the cap.
 -  Do not adjust the positioning, or modify the Screen Stack in any way. 

Monster™ nozzles are designed for precision TIG welding applications where increased shield gas coverage and tungsten stickout are needed. They are not designed for heavy-industrial pipe welding applications. The Monster15™ #15 Cup, however, may meet your needs for pipe welding and other heavy-duty applications.

Compatible with popular TIG torch models including:  A150 (WP-17), W350 (WP-18), A200 (WP-26), W400 (CS410) and CK 3 Series TIG torches.

I am glad I got this one.
I used the monster nozzle #12 with 1/16 ArcTime tungsten for a complete build of my motorcycle metal art. It works great for getting into tight spots because you can stick the tungsten so far out (3/4 inch plus) without the cup getting in the way. I was surprised that the tungsten doesn't arc over sticking out so far with tight surroundings. The argon coverage is good using 10-12 psi.

I have always been skeptical about the bigger cups, but I’m so glad I bought this one. The gas coverage is outstanding and the arc is more stable because of Arc-Zone’s screen stack.

My old go to setup has been a #8 stubby gas lens for mild steel and stainless. This cup is now my go to. For T joints I can run as little as 13 to 15 cfh of argon with a ¾” stick out. Most welds especially out in the open I’m running around 25 cfh with the same stick out. I have pushed this cup with just over a 1” stick out. It worked well, but if you plan on using more than a 1” stick out I would recommend a #14 or #16 Monster Nozzle. I’m giving these numbers as a comparison. Different joints and applications you will need to adjust what works for you.

The packaging says it won't make you a better welder... I disagree, awesome gas coverage in a small nozzle. Reaches places that my old jumbo #12 cup did but with better results and it's a fraction of the weight. I've already dropped it a couple times and it didn't crack!
