Straight-cutting torch’s gas-mixing technology reduces flashback potential

March 26, 2014

ESAB’s Global Center of Excellence for Gas Apparatus has introduced the Oxweld® SCT-1500 TR manual straight-cutting torch as part of its Elite series of gas apparatus products. The torch features patent-pending universal swirl injector gas-mixing technology to provide the optimum mix of gas for cutting efficiency and reduced flashback potential, says the company.

The injector swirls the higher-pressure oxygen streams to create a homogenous mix of gas. The swirling of the oxygen and fuel gas also produces a pump-like action that forms a vacuum in the torch to help improve performance with longer hoses and lower-pressure operations.

The torch can cut up to 10 in. with acetylene and 12 in. with alternate fuel gases.
