Weldcraft offers six models of stainless steel water coolers, designed to provide consistent, long-term cooling in GTAW, GMAW, and plasma cutting applications.
Each of the water coolers is available in 115- and 230-V models and operates on single-phase power. The 2500SS and 2502SS water coolers feature a 2-gal. reservoir, while the 3500SS and 3502SS models have a 3-gal. reservoir. The largest of the available models, the 6500SS and 6502SS, include a 6-gal. reservoir.
The reservoir design — a closed loop with a radiator — recirculates the coolant through a fan-cooled heat exchanger to prevent the system from overheating and prevent corrosion. Positive vane-style displacement pumps provide consistent coolant flow and pressure ratings, while the water coolers’ thermally protected, 1/3-HP motor provides additional protection against damage associated with overheating.
Each cooler features a removable cover that allows access to the pump filter and radiator for routine maintenance. Their standard inlet/outlet torch fittings are compatible with GTAW torches and GMAW guns that feature standard 5/8-18 left-hand fittings, and adapters are available to convert 0.25-in. fittings.
