Stainless Steel Water Coolers Offer Consistency, Corrosion Resistance and Long Product Life
APPLETON, Wis. - Weldcraft announced that it will offer six models of stainless steel water coolers designed to provide consistent, long-term cooling performance on both TIG and MIG welding applications, as well as plasma cutting operations. Each of the water coolers is available in 115 and 230 volt models and operates on single-phase power. The 2500SS and 2502SS water coolers feature a 2-gallon reservoir, while the 3500SS and 3502SS models have a 3-gallon reservoir. The largest of the available models, the 6500SS and 6502SS water coolers, include a 6-gallon reservoir.
To reduce coolant temperatures and resist corrosion, the water coolers feature a rugged, stainless steel coolant reservoir that includes a closed-loop design with a radiator. The design also recirculates the coolant through a fan-cooled heat exchanger to prevent the system from overheating. Positive vane-style displacement pumps provide consistent coolant flow and pressure ratings to help increase pump life expectancy, 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 for easy access to the pump filter and radiator for routine maintenance, which is recommended to increase the longevity of the products.
Adding to their reliability, the water coolers include factory preset pressure release valves that maintain consistent pressure during operation. They also have 10-foot-long power cords - longer than most in the industry - to allow for greater maneuverability around the workspace. The water coolers' standard inlet/outlet torch fittings are compatible with TIG torches and MIG guns that feature standard 5/8-18 left-hand fittings, and adapters are available to convert 1/4-inch fittings, making them a versatile cooling option.
Weldcraft recommends the use of Miller Low-Conductivity and Aluminum-Protecting coolants with the water coolers to protect against freezing to -37° F (-38° C) or boiling to 227° F (108° C).
Weldcraft is the world's leading manufacturer of GTAW (TIG) welding torches and accessories. A broad line of premium products includes the unique Crafter Series, WP Series, MicroTig(TM) and Quick Connect System(TM).
