Elga Optimator Pipeline Adjustable Regulator
All welders know the cost of welding wire per kilo. But do you know what shielding gas costs per meter of weld? It costs at least as much as the wire. Optimator is a regulator that was designed from the start with a specific purpose – to save gas. It reduces your shielding gas consumption by up to 50% with normal welding. The high quality of the welded joint it produces is something you get for free. Every time you start a traditional regulator, a large amount of gas is lost for no benefit.
Optimator has an optimum start flow that is just a quarter of a traditional regulator, right from the first second. This unique two-stage reduction valve has been developed for qualified shielding gas welding. The extremely pressure sensitive second stage greatly reduces the gas surge that normally occurs at start-up. This saves large amounts of shielding gas. The even start flow also provides a higher quality weld since you avoid turbulence. The risk for pores in the welded joint is minimised.
