BINZEL BASICS: Water-cooled Welding MIG Maintenance Tips

Posted by John Esposito on Apr 23, 2019 8:38:28 AM

When you are going from air-cooled to water-cooled welding torches, the biggest component is water. Since water is a good conductor of electricity, it does pose a threat as far as electrical hazards; whether it's to the welder itself, or to nearby workers, depending on if there is water on the floor. So when you're proposing water-cooled equipment, the maintenance is extremely important. You should be on a regular maintenance schedule.

First off, you might want to know what the heck surfacing is?  Surfacing is the process of rebuilding and/or protecting metals by adding metal alloys or ceramics.  These materials can be applied to a metal as either a powder or a solid.  Surfacing might seem like a needless, time-consuming task when you want to just grab your gun and weld, but it has some real advantages. Surfacing a part using a metal alloy or other material can:
