Gas Lens Nozzles

Jun 29, 2011

do you know the parts required for a torch to complete titanium tig welding?

for instance, the gas lens or even the gas lens nozzle

If you’re welding Ti in atmosphere you’ll need the biggest gas lens and shield cup as you possibly can. (I personally use a 3″ diameter one, special made) It is advisable to weld Ti within an argon chamber. Every side of the Ti welding area should be protected against atmosphere other smart you will trash your weld. Any discoloration from the weld area isn’t acceptable lacking a small hay color (no discoloration preferred). To answer your question you’ll need a Torch set up, Gas lens, shield cup, Collet, and Torch tail piece, the collet and gas lens ought to be sized accordingly for your tungsten size.
