Reduce time consuming and costly grinding
Close cutting for the removal of lugs and other attachments has typically been performed via oxyfuel cutting or carbon arc gouging, followed by labor intensive grinding. FlushCut for Powermax plasma systems provides a new, more efficient process for challenging removal applications.
The patented consumable design for FlushCut features an angled nozzle bore design which delivers the plasma arc at a 45 degree angle – essentially bending the plasma arc. This unique design gives Powermax users the ability to cut closer or more flush to the base than ever before which significantly reduces grinding and increases the opportunity to reuse pad eyes, attachments and other temporary weld supports.
Advantages of the Powermax® FlushCut™ process vs. oxyfuel cutting and carbon arc gouging in close or flush cutting applications
FlushCut vs. oxyfuel cutting
• The Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) associated with FlushCut is significantly smaller than the HAZ associated with oxyfuel which allows for a closer cut and less grinding.
• Because of the HAZ associated with oxyfuel, operators have to cut higher on the lug or attachment which reduces the chances of reuse.
FlushCut vs. carbon arc gouging
• When carbon arc gouging a lug or attachment, a minimum of two passes are needed for removal compared to the FlushCut process which requires only a single pass.
• The carbon arc gouging process is more likely to dig into the workpiece, which requires costly and time consuming repair work.
