Centricut Consumables for ESAB PT-36 Torches

The patented SilverLine electrode features a hybrid copper / silver weld joint that delivers performance equal to a solid silver electrode for a fraction of the cost. Advanced cooling features reduce its operating temperature to maximize the hafnium pit depth and slow its wear rate to extend electrode life. CoolFlow technology improves cooling to help maintain the size and shape of the nozzle orifice for longer life. 
These new electrodes and nozzles replace the original XR consumables in the torch and are guaranteed to perform as well as the ESAB units.
