The Sea Torch is an improved underwater cutting and welding torch with a one piece body construction. Fully insulated electrically for safety in normal operation, the Sea Torch is bright orange for high visibility to the diver. This torch can be used for oxygen-arc cutting and underwater welding.
The one piece body prohibits oxygen leakage in the torch body which can occur with torches having connections between the head and the handle. The tapered collet in the Sea Torch brings the bare surface of an electrode into contact for the entire length of the collet. This solid grip and increased contact area decreases the risk of arcing between the collet and the electrode, eliminating damage to the torch head. Sea Torch has a single external collet taper which forces the collet and electrode against a seal, ensuring a positive sealing of oxygen flow in that area.
The oxygen path is metallic instead of plastic to avoid the possibility of damage by ignition of plastic. By loosening two set screws, the oxygen valve and lever can be rotated to different positions to provide easier oxygen flow control for the diver.
Sea Torch is equipped with a spark arrestor behind the collet chuck for safe operation. A ball check valve in the torch handle gives additional protection.
This combination torch can be used for oxygen-arc cutting or underwater welding with the correct collet.
