Piercing Holes in Steel Plate with steel-tubular electrodes

Holes can be easily pierced in steel plate using steel-tubularelectrodes. The following technique is recommended: Touch the plate lightly with the electrode at the desired point. Hold the oxygen triggerdown and call for SWITCH ON. Hold the electrode stationary for a moment, withdrawing it momentarily as necessaryto start an arc and permit melting of the … Read more

Oxygen Arc Cutting Steel-Tubular Electrodes

The oxygen arc cutting steel-tubular electrode consists of a steel tube with a waterproofed flux coating which is applied during the manufacturing process. The electrode is 14 inches long with a 5/16-inch outer diameter and a bore diameter of slightly less than 1/8 inch. The waterproof flux coating is similar in composition to the coating … Read more
