Combination Torch Welds Up To 1 Inch Thick, Cuts Up To 8 Inches Thick

The Purox Elite Series Combination Torch from ESAB includes the WH-4200 welding handle and the CA-4200 cutting attachment. The torch delivers superior safety with its tubeless extruded handle that minimizes the potential of gases mixing in the handle.

The Global Center of Excellence for Gas Apparatus at ESAB Welding & Cutting Products (Florence, SC) offers an improved line of combination cutting torches as part of the Purox Elite Series of gas apparatus products.

The Purox Elite Series Combination Torch includes the WH-4200 welding handle and the CA-4200 cutting attachment.  The torch welds material up to one inch thick, and cuts up to 8 in thickness. The torch delivers superior safety with its tubeless extruded handle that minimizes the potential of gases mixing in the handle. This tubeless handle design, along with the torch’s head injector, contains any flashback that could occur at the furthest point from the user.

Flashbacks typically occur at the point where the fuel gas and oxygen mix together – the design contains this mixture in a safer location in the torch. This tubeless design is stronger than torches with individual gas tubes, which increases the torch’s durability. The Purox Elite Series Combination Torch features color-coded pressure adjustment knobs for quick and easy identification of gases, and the torch is properly weighted for comfort and reduced operator fatigue.

The Purox Elite CA-4200 Cutting Attachment features an internal tip nut to keep the cutting tip seated, thereby reducing the risk of leaks. This unique design also protects the threads on the head of the cutting attachment from damage while changing tips. The piston-style attachment makes it easy to connect to the welding handle, increasing the safety benefits.

Both the Purox Elite CA-4200 Cutting Attachment and the Purox Elite WH-4200 Welding Handle are compatible with the Purox W-300 handle and CW-300 cutting attachment. The Purox Elite Series and Oxweld Elite Series product lines include welding handles, cutting attachments, hand cutting torches, regulators, and complete outfits. All Purox Elite Series products sold in North America are backed by a 100 percent Satisfaction Guarantee. The company guarantees complete satisfaction with the product for the first 100 days of ownership.

The company also offers a line of manual Straight Cutting Torches (SCTs) as part of its new Elite Series of gas apparatus products. The new torches provide up to 50 percent more cutting capacity than comparable designs with the ability to cut up to 10 in when using acetylene, and up to 12 in with alternate fuel gases.

Elite Series torches deliver unmatched performance and superior safety with the patented Elite Swirl Head Injector design. This revolutionary design optimally mixes high pressure preheat oxygen and lower pressure fuel gas to create a vacuum producing “entrainment zone” that pulls gas through the torch. As a result, the risk of damaging flashback is minimized.

This exclusive design also creates the best mix of preheat gases achievable while doing so in the torch head, which is the furthest point from the user. Flashbacks typically occur at the point where fuel gas and oxygen mix together. The design creates this preheat mixture in the safest location possible. In addition, the Elite Swirl Head Injector improves performance with long hoses and low-pressure operations, and provides a more thorough mixing of gases than conventional methods.

Elite SCTs have the flexibility to work with multiple fuel gas types. The Elite Series provides the only cutting torch capable of changing from a positive pressure universal mixer to a universal injector simply by changing the cutting tip from acetylene to any alternate fuel gas. This eliminates the need to change the mixer to match the fuel gas or have different cutting torches for different fuels.

Additionally, Elite Series SCTs feature a 3-tube, in-line design that provides for increased gas flow, performance and durability. The strength of the 3-tube design permits a higher cutting capacity in acetylene and alternate fuel gases, which may eliminate the need for larger, more expensive heavy-duty cutting torches. The torches also feature an internal tip nut which keeps the cutting tip seated, thereby reducing the risk of leaks when temperatures rise and thermal expansion takes place.

This unique design also protects the threads on the head of the cutting attachment from damage when changing tips. These torches are equipped with color-coded pressure adjustment knobs for quick and easy identification of gases. The cutting oxygen lever and valve are designed for “ease-on” control of cutting oxygen, which reduces the potential for blowback when piercing and increases user confidence. The torch is properly weighted for comfort and reduced operator fatigue.
