HFT’s Multistrike tungsten electrodes for welding

news item image
Tungsten electrodes are used during tungsten inert gas (TIG) or plasma welding and are the most important consumable during the process.
However, they are often manufactured using thoria - dust from which poses a risk to health.
Recognising both the performance requirement and the health concerns, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques’ (HFT) MultiStrike tungsten electrodes not only deliver an increased overall performance they also contain a mix of non-radio-toxic compounds.
These MultiStrike electrodes give at least 10 times more arc striking capacity than alternative electrodes tested under the same conditions.
MultiStrikes can be used for welding aluminium with the AC process, as well as steels and alloys with the DC process. This allows the welder to have just one type of tungsten electrode to weld all materials and reduce the amount of stocks and purchasing requisitions.
MultiStrike provide savings through longer life, more strikes per electrode before re-grinding, less re-work, less wastage and lower power requirements.
