Increase the life of your Tungsten Electrode with MultiStrike®


Thoriated tungsten electrodes are still widely used in GTAW/TIG welding despite the potential health hazards. Thoria is added primarily to stabilize the arc but it is radio-toxic and radio-toxic dust is generated during electrode grinding.

To overcome the risk posed by harmful products Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s blue-tipped MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes contain a mix of rare earth stabilizing compounds without thoria and are thus radio-toxic free. They also offer a life extension of up to ten times that of other stabilized electrodes.

Each packet comes with a traceability number to ensure that companies with a quality control procedure have traceability over another aspect of their joining processes.

MultiStrikes® can be used for welding aluminium with the AC process, as well as steels and alloys with the DC process, which allows the welder to have just one type of Tungsten Electrode to weld all materials and reduce the amount of stock and purchasing requisitions.

MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes demonstration video is available on YouTube. 

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have a worldwide Exclusive Distributor network, which can be found at www.huntingdonfusion.com.

Oxygen Monitor for Welding

Inert gas welding requires the elimination of oxygen from the weld zone during the welding of reactive metals including stainless steel. Before the welding process begins, the oxygen level must be reduced to a required minimum, which is less than 100 ppm when welding stainless steel.  The low cos ...

Low Cost Weld Purge Plugs for Tube and Pipe Weld Purging

Due to tight budgets, welders sometimes have to construct their own Weld Purging Equipment, often made from materials such as paper, card, sponge or foam. Homemade dams made from such materials can often lead to loss of welds when they leak or slip from position thus flooding the welding zone with ...
