XR Series Nozzles

Extended Range Plasma Performance for the PT-36 Precision Plasmarc® Torch

ESAB continues to advance Precision Plasma Technology

ESAB introduces the new XR Series of high speed plasma cutting nozzles for the PT-36 torch. The innovative nozzle design improves overall cutting performance by increasing cutting speed and extending the dross-free cutting range. The result is lower overall operating costs as you cut the same parts faster, or with lower current. Piercing performance is also enhanced, allowing thicker plate to be cut more reliably.


Extended Dross-Free Range

Advanced nozzle design allows each of the new XR Series nozzles to cut through a wider range of materials. This means that existing m3 plasma systems can now cut thicker with less power. The wide cutting range also means fewer consumable changes, so the operator spends more time cutting and less time changing nozzles. Throughout each nozzle’s cutting range the cut quality and dross performance are improved, reducing secondary operations and clean-up work.


Improved Piercing Performance

The XR Series nozzles use a new Nickel plated shield retainer and shields to help shed pierce spatter and resist front-end damage when piercing thicker plate. The new XR Series shields are thicker and heavier to hold up better under the most challenging conditions. ESAB's EPP plasma power supplies can supply plasma current from 12 amps up to 600 amps.  The improved nozzle cooling also helps extend nozzle life when piercing thicker material. XR Nozzles can cut up to 80% thicker with the same current.*



The XR Series Nozzles feature an extended cooling surface and thicker cross-section for better heat transfer and longer nozzle life. The new XR Series Nozzles are designed to be used with the new TL Oxygen Electrode. This new electrode delivers more consistent cutting angles by reducing turbulence in the plasma stream. Electrode cooling efficiency has also been optimized, so one new oxygen plasma electrode is used throughout the entire range of XR nozzles, as well as many other oxygen plasma setups.


Lower Operating Cost

Better cooling equals longer consumable life. The new XR Series nozzles feature improved cooling which translates to longer consumable life. The extended water cooling surface is closer to the nozzle tip, so the nozzles run cooler and last longer.
