1.02 Arc Welding Hazards
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal
shocks or severe burns. The electrode and
work circuit is electrically live whenever the
output is on. The input power circuit and
machine internal circuits are also live when
power is on. In semi-automatic or automatic
wire welding, the wire, wire reel, drive roll
housing, and all metal parts touching the
welding wire are electrically live. Incorrectly
installed or improperly grounded equipment
is a hazard.
Manual 89250890 1. Do not touch live electrical parts.
2. Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
3. Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry
insulating mats or covers.
4. Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or servicing this equipment. Lock input power
disconnect switch open, or remove line fuses so power
cannot be turned on accidentally.
5. Properly install and ground this equipment according
to its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local
codes.
6. Turn off all equipment when not in use. Disconnect
power to equipment if it will be left unattended or out
of service.

in water to cool it or lay it down on the ground or the
work surface. Do not touch holders connected to two
welding machines at the same time or touch other
people with the holder or electrode.
1-1
GENERAL INFORMATION
N7500
GENERAL INFORMATION
8. Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly
spliced cables.
9. Do not wrap cables around your body.
10.Ground the workpiece to a good electrical (earth)
ground.
11.Do not touch electrode while in contact with the work
(ground) circuit.
12.Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace
damaged parts at once.
13.In confined spaces or damp locations, do not use a
welder with AC output unless it is equipped with a
voltage reducer. Use equipment with DC output.
14.Wear a safety harness to prevent falling if working
above floor level.
15.Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
WARNING
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin; NOISE can
damage hearing. Arc rays from the welding
process produce intense heat and strong
ultraviolet rays that can burn eyes and skin.
Noise from some processes can damage
hearing.
1. Wear a welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of
filter (see ANSI Z49.1 listed in Safety Standards) to
protect your face and eyes when welding or watching.
2. Wear approved safety glasses. Side shields recommended.
3. Use protective screens or barriers to protect others
from flash and glare; warn others not to watch the arc.
4. Wear protective clothing made from durable, flameresistant material (wool and leather) and foot protection.
5. Use approved ear plugs or ear muffs if noise level is
high.
WARNING
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous to your
health.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing
these fumes and gases can be hazardous to
your health.
1. Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breath the
fumes.
2. If inside, ventilate the area and/or use exhaust at the
arc to remove welding fumes and gases.
3. If ventilation is poor, use an approved air-supplied
respirator.
4. Read the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instruction for metals, consumables,
coatings, and cleaners.
5. Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated,
or while wearing an air-supplied respirator. Shielding
gases used for welding can displace air causing injury
or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.
6. Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or
spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can
react with vapors to form highly toxic and irritating
gases.
7. Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized,
lead, or cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is
removed from the weld area, the area is well ventilated,
and if necessary, while wearing an air-supplied respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these
elements can give off toxic fumes if welded.
WARNING
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
Sparks and spatter fly off from the welding arc.
The flying sparks and hot metal, weld spatter,
hot workpiece, and hot equipment can cause
fires and burns. Accidental contact of electrode
or welding wire to metal objects can cause
sparks, overheating, or fire.
1. Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot
metal.
2. Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable
material.
GENERAL INFORMATION
1-2
Manual 89250890
GENERAL INFORMATION
3. Remove all flammables within 35 ft. (10.7 m) of the
welding arc. If this is not possible, tightly cover them
with approved covers.
4. Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from
welding can easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
5. Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
6. Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or
partition can cause fire on the hidden side.
7. Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks or
drums.
8. Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding
area as practical to prevent welding current from
traveling long, possibly unknown paths and causing
electric shock and fire hazards.
9. Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
10.Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding
wire at contact tip when not in use.
N7500
NOTE
The following is a quotation from the General Conclusions
Section of the U.S. Congress, Office of Technology
Assessment, Biological Effects of Power Frequency Electric
& Magnetic Fields - Background Paper, OTA-BP-E-63
(Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, May
1989): “...there is now a very large volume of scientific
findings based on experiments at the cellular level and from
studies with animals and people which clearly establish
that low frequency magnetic fields interact with, and
produce changes in, biological systems. While most of
this work is of very high quality, the results are complex.
Current scientific understanding does not yet allow us to
interpret the evidence in a single coherent framework.
Even more frustrating, it does not yet allow us to draw
definite conclusions about questions of possible risk or to
offer clear science-based advice on strategies to minimize
or avoid potential risks.”
To reduce magnetic fields in the workplace, use the
following procedures.
WARNING
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping
them.
2. Arrange cables to one side and away from the
operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cable around the body.
4. Keep welding power source and cables as far away
from body as practical.
ABOUT PACEMAKERS:
FLYING SPARKS AND HOT METAL can cause
injury.
Chipping and grinding cause flying metal. As
welds cool, they can throw off slag.
1. Wear approved face shield or safety goggles. Side
shields recommended.
2. Wear proper body protection to protect skin.
The above procedures are among those
also normally recommended for pacemaker
wearers. Consult your doctor for complete
information.
WARNING
MOVING PARTS can cause injury.
Moving parts, such as fans, rotors, and belts can cut
fingers and hands and catch loose clothing.
1. Keep all doors, panels, covers, and guards closed and
securely in place.
2. Stop engine before installing or connecting unit.
3. Have only qualified people remove guards or covers
for maintenance and troubleshooting as necessary.
4. To prevent accidental starting during servicing, disconnect negative (-) battery cable from battery.
5. Keep hands, hair, loose clothing, and tools away from
moving parts.
6. Reinstall panels or guards and close doors when servicing is finished and before starting engine.

2.01 Arcair-Matic N7500 Gouging System
The Arcair-Matic N7500 Gouging System adds new dimensions of flexibility and control in modern weld preparation. It’s the most advanced air carbon-arc gouging/grooving system in the world. The N7500 System assures
improved productivity in the following ways:
• Higher yields of optimum quality end product
• Dramatic reductions of man-hours and process cost
• Expanded areas of applicability
FEATURES
Remote Pendant providing complete control of the gouging operation where it needs to be .... in the welder/
operator hands.
All functions from determining gouge parameters, start/stop function, travel delay, and the capability to manually
feed or retract the electrode in the Torch Head. The welder/operator can view the amperage and voltage during
gouging sequence easily while maintaining the electrode on the weld seam that’s being back gouged.
A single electrode contact shoe assembly accepts the entire range of Victor Arcair gouging electrodes from
5/16” (7.9 mm) through 3/4” (19.1 mm).
The N7500 Torch Head eliminates the necessity of stocking or changing contact shoe assemblies when changing electrode sizes.
The gouging system uses the Power Supply “contactor” to ensure that the gouging current is only present
when the welder/operator presses the “start” button on the Remote Pendant.
System is easily connected to the various power supplies available in the industry.
Ensures conformity to pre-determined, pre-selected groove depth and width specifications.
Welder/Operator can use the “Parameter Guide” option on the Remote Pendant to view the recommended
amperage and travel speed once the electrode and gouge depth is chosen.
A unique “travel delay” function assures excellent groove geometry at the very beginning of the groove.
This function eliminates a sloped groove at the beginning of the gouge, eliminating the need for a starting pad.
No current detect and low voltage functions shut down the system when these conditions are sensed.
These functions ensure optimum groove quality and prevent damage to the equipment and work.
Redesigned Torch Head
Redesigned Torch Head with extended front end to give the welder/operator better range of viewing during the
gouging operation ensuring the electrode is maintained in the correct position to the weld seam.

N7500 SYSTEM
The N7500 System produces in a single pass uniform “U” or “J” grooves of various depths up to 1-1/8” (28.6
mm). Two or more passes produce grooves of greater depth. Through continuous control of arc voltage or amperage and a constant travel speed, the groove is held within 0.025” (0.635 mm) target depth. Victor Arcair Jointed
Jetrods® Electrodes, with tapered male and female ends, make it possible to produce grooves of unlimited length.
Control elements and circuitry for the N7500 System are housed in a Control Box and a splash-proof Pendant.
Gouging operations are managed remotely using the Remote Pendant with a multi-function LCD display and touch
pad controls.
Groove depth and width are controlled in two ways:
• By changing the travel carriage’s forward speed or by changing the work piece rotational speed.
• By changing the electrode’s diameter and increasing or decreasing amperage.
NOTE
Remote Pendant is NOT submersible.

troubleshooting of the N7500 System. Illustrations, charts and other supporting data are provided to bridge the
gap between theory and practice.
In addition, the N7500 System can be integrated with any mechanized travel system that provides forward travel
over a steel plate while in the flat, vertical, or over-head positions. The N7500 Torch Head can also be mounted
in a stationary position for work on rotating shafts, round steel, or a vessel. In a stationary set up the work-piece
rotates in a counter-clockwise direction and the Torch Head is generally located at the work-piece’s 4 o’clock position.

3.04Electrodes
The most important part of the N7500 System is the electrode. Since the N7500 system uses only DC power, the
electrodes must be formulated and manufactured for use exclusively with Direct Current.
The use of Victor Arcair Jointed Jetrods Copperclad DC Electrodes is highly recommended. These electrodes are
manufactured to Victor Arcair specifications to provide the best electrical conductivity, to maintain proper electrode
diameter at the point of the arc, and to minimize carbon sublimation. A male/female joint enables electrodes to
be joined together while the gouging operation is taking place.

The formulation and design of the Jetrods Electrodes embody numerous laboratory-proven advantages under the
user’s production conditions. Among these advantages are:
• Cooler operation due to a small incandescent area at the tip and joint
• Excellent arc stability
• High metal-removal rates
• Uniformity of diameter
• Clean grooves or cuts

duty cycle at the amperage required for the
size (diameter) electrode used. Contact the
manufacturer of the Power Supply for paralleling procedures or with questions concerning
amperage ratings and duty cycles.
3.07 Keeping Electrodes Dry
Keep electrodes dry. Damp electrodes should be dried
before using. (Ten hours at 300°F [176.7°C]) Wet
electrodes may shatter from internal steam pressure
when an arc is struck.
POWER SUPPLY (SUPPLIED BY USER) FOR THE
N7500 SYSTEM
WARNING
Direct current/electrode positive (reverse
polarity) is required for the N7500 System. Use direct current/electrode negative
(straight polarity) for special applications.
DO NOT use alternating current with the
system.
NOTE
Recommendations are based on a 4 volt DC
drop per 100 ft. (30.48 m) length given is onehalf the sum of lengths of electrode and ground
leads. Inadequate grounding may cause cable
overheating. There should be at least 1 square
inch (6.45 cm2) of contact per 1000 amps.
DC Welding Power Supply with a minimum Open-Circuit
Voltage (OCV) of 60 volts and 45 volts at rated load supply
the DC current for the N7500 System. Use single Power
Supplies rated at 1,000 or 1,500 amperes to get enough
amperage for larger diameter electrodes. Power Supplies
may be paralleled in combinations of two or more similar
units.

5.02 Position Torch Head
1. Position the Torch Head above the work piece you want to start gouging.
2. Using the Angle Gauge supplied with the N7500, adjust the Torch Head to the work piece. The angle gauge
sets the torch angle, electrode stick-out and aligns the air nozzle.
3. The air should flow between the electrode and the work piece.
Charts, graphs and other data in this manual are based on a 45° electrode angle, but you can use electrode angles
from 45° to 60°. Users should develop their own standards based on shop conditions and application.
5.03 Insert the Electrode
1. Adjust the Electrode Guide Block for the electrode diameter being used. Loosen thumbscrew, adjust, and
then tighten the thumbscrew again (See “Figure 5-3: Torch Head Parts”).
2. Push the Electrode Release (clamping) Lever down and insert the electrode FEMALE END FIRST into the
rear of the Torch Head until it protrudes through the nozzle. The two-legged spring and protective shield
should rest squarely on top of the electrode. To check their positions, look down the rear of the torch. If
the spring and shield are pushed to either side, withdraw the electrode and insert it again. Release the
clamping lever.

The DC Power Supply contactor closes and the electrode will feed down to the work piece. The air solenoid
inside the Control Box will open to release compressed air to the Torch Head air nozzle. An arc will be
struck as soon as the tip of the electrode reaches the work piece. The proper arc gap will be maintained,
even while the electrode feeds downward. Once the electrode reaches the target depth, the travel system
will be energized.
NOTE
If a short out interrupts the operation; check the air nozzle and the electrode guide block in the Torch
Head for signs of arcing. If arcing is evident make appropriate repairs. If NO signs of arcing are present, retry starting the gouge procedure by pressing the “Start” button on the Pendant.
WARNING
Wear protective gear and be sure the work area is clear. The system is ready to begin gouging. If the
unit is attached to a travel system, be sure the travel system is ready to operate. Stand clear of the
Torch Head.
CAUTION
If the unit doesn’t respond, turn OFF the Power Supply and Control Box power. Refer to the Troubleshooting Guide.
14.To adjust arc voltage while operating in “CC” mode, push down on the rotary dial while turning clockwise
to increase or counterclockwise to decrease the arc voltage under load. Range of adjustment is +/- 5 volts
from initial arc voltage value shown on the Remote Pendant before pressing the “Start” S TA RT button. If the
gouging is stopped for any reason, the arc voltage value displayed at that point will be the new value that
can be increased or decreased by 5 volts.
To adjust current while operating in “CV” mode, push down on the potentiometer dial
while turning
clockwise to increase or counterclockwise to decrease the current under load. Range of adjustment is +/100 amperes from initial current value shown on the Remote Pendant before pressing the “Start” button.

This section briefly describes some uses for the N7500 System. If you have any questions concerning a specific
application for this system contact Victor Technologies Technical Services Department at 800-426-1888 or 940566-2000.
GOUGING NON-FERROUS METALS
The N7500 System can be connected to DC Straight Polarity (DCEN) to gouge non-ferrous metals, such as nickel,
copper alloys, etc. “Figure 6-1: N7500 DC Straight Polarity (DCEN)” shows the proper connections for the system
to run on DC Straight Polarity.

NOTE
Use standard #12 insulated copper wire as your signal wire. It must be long enough to prevent stress
on the Contactor connection.
6.02 Zero Force Rough Machining
The N7500 system can work with an automated travel system to remove hardsurfacing material from steel mill
rolls; kiln rolls and shafts which needs re-working. Remove as much as 1-1/2” (3.81 cm) of old material from the
outside diameter in a single pass and as little as 1/8” (3.18 cm) for the finish pass.
OSCILLATION GOUGING TO REMOVE MATERIAL
The N7500 can be mounted on a welding oscillator to remove material. Normal uses for an oscillated gouge would
be to remove cladded material from plates requiring a beveled edge and to remove backup bars and excessive
weld crowns.
