 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.

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 :)

This Vortex nozzle has been a great addition to my welding arsenal!

Lets start with the durability of the aluminum construction of this cup. First thing I accidently did with it was fumble it when I pulled it out of its packaging and dropped it on the concrete floor (ouch!!). When I picked it up I expected it to be dented and at least the black finish to be chipped off… Nope! It was still in perfect condition! The anodized finish is tough and no dents in the cup.

Another key point is that this nozzle does use a diffuser biscut which are cheap to replace but has amperage restrictions to about 130amps. It also has a great threaded retaining ring to ensure that it keeps the diffuser from falling out overtime.

I would recommend this product to anyone working with stainless steel, steel or light gauge aluminum. I used it on a lot of stainless sheet metal with great results! The gas coverage was amazing and when set up right I was getting pure gold welds(about 30cfh).

After spending some time with Vortex nozzle, I am confident this can be a useful tool in every welders tool kit.

I have used the setup a couple of weeks now and found that the gas coverage on this nozzle is as advertised, which is simply excellent! I have been getting extremely consistent weld quality and I am very pleased with the rugged design of the nozzle, I am pretty hard on stuff. The nozzle is lightweight on the end of the torch and the threaded ring cap is a nice feature.

This set up is ideal for guys and gals working tube, chassis, thin sanitary pipe and precision work.. The nozzle performed flawlessly on thin stainless, sheet metal, and thin gauge aluminum, which I have been working a lot of lately. I was definitely pleased with the appearance of the welds. I have pushed this thing to its limits and it has definitely found a place in my arsenal. The only limitation is, if you run too much amperage through it, the diffuser bisket will burn up , leaving you with a sad face .

All in all I think this is a great setup with some pretty cool engineering put into it. I think most welders will find this nozzle is worth the price and will benefit them, especially when it comes to precision work and on the tedious thinner materials.

If you want o check out my work, you can find me @jalumo1973 on Instagram. Cheers !!
