wc-20 grey ceriated 2% tungsten electrode

wc-20 grey ceriated 2% tungsten electrode

Supplier — AvekGlob Company — offers tungsten electrodes of the brand WC-20 at an affordable price from the manufacturer. The supplier guarantees the timely delivery of products to any address specified by the consumer /

Technical specifications

Tungsten electrodes of the brand WC-20 («gray») contain cerium oxide, which makes it possible to improve the emission properties of the product and stabilize the arc discharge in «soft» modes corresponding to small processing currents and low voltages. Such modes are used for electric welding with a small welding cycle (welding of thin-walled metal, small-sized products). They are also relevant for orbital welding of pipelines, when the electrode completes a full revolution around a stationary tubular blank. This method is mainly used for welding stainless steel pipes.

The power of the electronic transgression of WC-20 electrodes is 2.4 eV, which is less than that of the thorium-tungsten electrode.

Urgency of application

Tungsten electrodes WC-20 are effective for TIG welding, but can also be used for welding in an inert gas, mainly argon. Technological advantages — stable and fast ignition of an arc, steady its burning, rather small deterioration, insensibility to current drops, absence of harmful for health of impurity.

The electrodes under consideration are the best substitute for tungsten-thorium electrodes in conditions of low direct current. They are also used for plasma mesh grids, for coatings on metal grids, for gas-discharge light sources.

Chemical composition

In accordance with the technical requirements of ISO6848: 2004, the composition and limitations of WC-20 tungsten electrodes are:

Name Additive Percent of cerium oxide Other impurities Tungsten Recommended discharge frequency
WC20 CeO 2 1.80… 2.20 <0.20% The rest, but not less than 97.3% 2.7… 2.8

Assortment and properties

Tungsten electrodes of the brand WC-20 are supplied in the range of diameters 0.5… 25 mm, with a length of 150… 200 mm, or other, with the individual order of the consumer. Electrode parameters can be selected according to the following table:
