Standard Electrode For P130 Plasma Torches
Pack of 5 electrodes for use with a P130 plasma torch, as supplied with the Oxford CUTMaker 1000, 1300 and TecArc OPTeCUT 95 and 125 plasma cutters. The P13006 electrodes can be used for plasma cutting, thermal heating and gouging applications.
This electrode, part number P13006 is one of the most commonly changed parts when using a plasma torch. The electrode provides power to the plasma arc. An insert at the tip of the electrode is made from a material with a very high melting point, such as Hafnium. As the electrode wears, the insert will slowly erode away, forming a small hole in the electrode tip.
WHEN TO REPLACE: Changing the electrode is recommended once the pit in the tip reaches approx. 1mm in depth. Failure to replace an electrode can cause a blowout which will damage both the electrode and nozzle. If you need to slow down the cutting speed, are experiencing green discolouration of the arc or the arc is misfiring it is time to change the electrode.
The PR13006 electrode is for use when drag cutting between 45 and 130A.
