set and forget, tamper proof !!!
In Tig and Mig Welding when the welding arc is established a surge of gas is emitted from the torch. The Elga Optimator reduces this surge considerably saving gas consumption by around 30%. The more arc starts the greater the gas saving.
Elga Optimator® - You must look hard for better return on an investment!
Most companies working with MIG/MAG and TIG welding know very well the price of welding wire per kilogram. But, relatively few are aware that the cost of the shielding gas is at least as high, per meter of weld. Elga Optimator® is designed for one sole purpose, to reduce your consumption of expensive gas, generally by 30%. Just a few months using your Elga Optimator® and you will get your money back - the rest is pure profit.
Ordinary regulators are too slow!
The Elga Optimator® produces an optimised shielding gas flow from the very first second. Any traditional regulator will not control the initial flow surge, which is unnecessarily high, and a very expensive waste. In worst cases this excessive surge represents up to 50% of your total shielding gas consumption! The higher the freqency of starts, the more gas is wasted and more money could be earned when you change to the Elga Optimato®r.
Quality without cost
The Elga Optimator® provides optimal start flow that is approx. 1/4 of the initial flow of a conventional regulator. This saves you shielding gas. The smooth initial flow, in addition, enables higher quality of welds since you minimize the turbulence that often influences your welding process.
Elga Optimator® also as lockable version
Since we are talking about quality, it is important that you should know that the Elga Optimator® can be equipped with a lockabel gas flow control. This is an advantage when you need to meet the highest welding quality demands, for instance ISO 9000 certification.
