 916-90210 Vortex™ Aluminum Flooding Cup

Vortex™ TIG Nozzle, #16 = 1" (25mm) Gas Orifice.  Looking for a Bullet Proof TIG nozzle?  Problem solved, The Vortex™ Nozzle works great for out-of-position TIG welds like tube clusters and other difficult applications with contours that are difficult to follow and where torch angle is not as critical.

The nozzle is precision CNC machined from aluminum with a tough hard anodized finish for bullet proof performance in the harshest weld shops. The threaded collar on the front of the nozzle holds the composite diffuser in place and allows for easy replacement as needed.

Nozzle Includes:
1ea. Vortex™ TIG Nozzle
1ea. Teflon Nozzle Isolator
1ea. Composite Gas Diffuser
Replacement gas diffusers sold in packages of 3ea. Part # 916-90211

Note: Not designed for heavy-industrial pipe welding applications that require the user to "walk the cup".

Arc-Zone does not make any claims or guarantees of weld quality improvements, or amounts of shield gas coverage-- 
that varies based on the end-user's technique, gas quality, flow rates, type of flow meter, type of gas hose material, 
welding machine, TIG torch, workstation set-up etc. Your results may vary and performance is determined by you and your set-up.

Set-Up Tips, Do's & Don'ts!
The Vortex™ Nozzle works best with Argon flow rates from 20-35CFH
Do Not Exceed 125 amps, the composite diffuser will rapidly deteriorate at high amperages, and long arctime's.
The Vortex™ nozzle is Not designed for welding with AC current!
Ideal tungsten stickout of 0.7500" or 3/4" (19mm) -- Shorter stickout may result in damage to the composite diffuser.
The Vortex™ nozzle works best with 1/16" (1.6mm) and 3/32" (2.4mm) tungsten sizes.

I found that this nozzle performed admirably on thin chrome moly tubing. It is light and highly durable however the threaded nylon insert on my particular product was not fixed into the aluminium housing by any means. I am not sure if this is by design (perhaps the two different materials should be able to expand at differing rates?) but it can be easily remedied. The ‘biskets’ (fibre diffusers) appear to be simply made from Scotchbrite abrasive pad. I had expected some purpose built material but it works very well regardless.

Make a bieautifull weld with great protection eliminate the distubation and eliminate the atmosfere contamination i rocomande for stainless if you want no color

The cup is machined anodized aluminum with a glued in rubber/plastic bushing to thread onto the collet body. Melted that piece.

The biskets melted instantly.

I will probably be machining a new bushing and welding it onto the cup.

Instead of using the biskets I'm going to punch some round pieces of fine mesh to fit behind the threaded ring at the end of the cup.

I didn't see that this had limitations on amperage but it seems like a good cup for light amperage work.

After using this nozzle I found that its very close in function to the Monster Nozzle. The added benefits to upgrading to this one would be the durability factor and the diffuser bisket cap. I've drop this one a few times with no chipping of the coating and no damage to the nozzle. With the diffuser cap you have the insurance that the bisket will not drop out randomly.

With all that said with any larger nozzle you will have space limitations but your tungsten stick out can be greater.

I just started running it on my wp9 w/ .040 tungsten and it works great on thin wall tube. It's not to heavy and feels well balanced. Like mentioned above, it's machined from aluminum, then anodized, which makes it non electrically conductive and super durable compared to the ceramic cups. The diffuser is also retained via a threaded cap which is a great idea! More pics on instagram, #turbo_fx. Thanks for a great cup and for the two previous reviews :)
