Flame Monitoring And Quick Change Nozzle Feature On Quattrojet Flame Cutting System

ESAB Cutting Systems : 21 July, 2010  (New Product)
The Quattrojet oxy-fuel cutting system from ESAB enables high performance cutting of metals between 3 and 300 mm in thickness
Flame Monitoring And Quick Change Nozzle Feature On Quattrojet Flame Cutting System
With the introduction of ESAB Cutting Systems' new Quattrojet oxy-fuel flame cutting system, new levels of productivity and performance have been brought to this established cutting process. Available for use with propane and natural gas and capable of cutting metals from 3 - 300 mm thick, Quattrojet incorporates a number of features including integrated height sensor and flame monitor, integrated ignition system and a quick change cutting nozzle. Together these features are a further step towards full cutting automation as well as ensuring a safer cutting environment.

Quattrojet requires no separate height sensor to ensure the correct distance between the cutting nozzle and the surface of the metal and the design means that there are no unnecessary components around the cutting torch and nozzle. The result is much lower maintenance and spare parts are needed.

The flame monitoring feature ensures that the Quattrojet torch recognises every break in the cutting operation, including for example those caused by possible malfunctions on the cutting tool or faults in the material. This prevents cutting errors as well as uncontrolled leakages and losses of cutting gas which could otherwise result in a fire.

The fully integrated automatic internal ignition system means that a conventional external ignition device is unnecessary and results in a compact design for the torch unit. The internal ignition has fail safe protection against dirt and mechanical damage. Time consuming and cost intensive cleaning and servicing are no longer required and optimal operating reliability is ensured.

The quick change of nozzles can be carried out without tools, resulting in far shorter set up times and no accidental change in the position of the torch. The need for readjustment after the nozzle change is virtually eliminated.

Quattrojet, with its slim and compact design is consistently geared towards smooth operation and high performance oxy-fuel cutting. For multi - torch operation, it also allows smaller spaces between the individual torches than conventional models. Overall fewer parts mean less wear and a reduction in the wear parts inventory.
