To achieve maximum SilverLine electrode life

To achieve maximum nozzle life

A fully used SilverLine electrode will have a pit depth of .060 in. (1.5 mm). Note: This is deeper than the recommended pit depth for standard parts .040" (1 mm).

With careful use, the nozzle can last 1:1 with the SilverLine electrode.

Purge torch: after each parts change purge the torch for at least 30 seconds to remove residual moisture. 2.

Leak check the torch after purging to make sure all o-ring and metal-to-metal seals are working as designed. Adjust gas flows: Plasma gas flow rate is critical. High flow will cause rapid electrode wear and hard starting. Low flow will cause uncontrolled arcing. (See parameters)

3.

4.

Adjust arc voltage: As the electrode wears, the torch will get closer to the plate. To compensate for this, increase arc voltage in 2-volt increments, up to 10 volts higher than the initial setting.

5.

Avoid ramp-down errors: Ramp down errors can occur when rip cutting off the plate or when leading out to the dropped part as the arc stretches. These “blowouts” shorten electrode life by 10 or more starts per occurrence.

Properly tighten the nozzle retainer: Make sure the nozzle retainer is sealed tightly against the nozzle to maintain a metal-to-metal seal and prevent leaking. Pierce at correct height: Piercing too low causes molten metal (spatter) to hit the shield and nozzle. This is the most common cause of premature nozzle failure. Piercing too high can cause slow arc transfer and misfires. In most applications, 1/4" (6 mm) pierce height works. Adjust shield flows: Correct shield gas flows during pre-flow protect the nozzle and shield from damage. Make sure pre-flow is adjusted according to the cut chart. Clean the nozzle and shield: Periodically clean the nozzle and shield to remove spatter. This will prevent double arcing. Adjust arc voltage: As parts wear, adjust arc voltage up in 2-volt increments to keep the shield from dragging on the plate. Damage to the shield and nozzle occurs if the torch contacts the plate during cutting.

Half-used electrode This SilverLine electrode is only half consumed. The pit in the center of the part measures .040" (1.0 mm). Electrodes are often removed prematurely due to cut quality deterioration related to nozzle failure. Additional life can be achieved by replacing the nozzle and leaving the electrode in place.

SilverLine technology involves fusing a silver front-end onto a copper electrode base. Inserting the hafnium emitter into an all-silver front end versus copper creates two advantages. 1) The hafnium-silver bond is stronger, allowing a deeper pit depth in the hafnium as the electrode is used. 2) By diffusing more heat during use, silver slows the rate of hafnium wear. Both of these benefits combine to prolong electrode life and lower the cost of cutting.

Fully-used electrode The SilverLine electrode has provided full use. The pit depth is .060" (1.5 mm). The operator increased the arc voltage by 10 volts from the first cuts made with this electrode to the last. This maintains a constant distance between the torch and the work-piece through the life of the electrode.
