Tip & Diffuser Assembly & Features:
High Torque Buttress Threads
PowerBall® Torch Tips feature high torque buttress threads to provide more contact surface and a secure connection that will not loosen upon impact. Buttress threads are designed to handle extremely high axial thrust in one direction and are the same threads used in guns and artillery. They also create an ideal connection point between the tip and diffuser to prevent tip locking caused by the uneven expansion of copper and brass.
Stays Cool and Goes with the Flow
The Gas Distribution and Cooling Chamber featured on PowerBall® Diffusers provides optimum cooling for longer tip life and even gas flow to prevent excessive turbulence around the weld pool. The smooth elliptical end connecting the tip to the diffuser maximizes the contact surface to provide superb conductivity with low resistance.
A Well-Rounded Design
The fully rounded tip design on PowerBall® contact tips provides enhanced protection against spatter build-up, helping to reduce burn backs that can cause excessive downtime.
