INSTALLATION / OPERATION
TORCH / CONSUMABLES INSPECTION
For detailed installation and operation follow all torch instructions in the plasma system manual packed with your cutting
package. DO NOT install or attempt to operate this torch without following those instructions first.
WARNING
Conditions under which extra precautions are to be observed during plasma
cutting:
1. Refer to general warnings in manual.
2. Do not cut closed containers. An explosion may result.
WARNING
Before inspecting or changing consumables make sure power switch on the power
source is in the OFF position and primary input power is deenergized.
WARNING
BE SURE to install the swirl baffle in the torch. Failure to do so would allow the
nozzle (tip) to contact the electrode. This contact would permit high voltage to
be applied to the nozzle. Your contact with the nozzle or workpiece could then
result in serious injury or death by electric shock.
1. Periodically check the heat shield, electrode, nozzle, and swirl baffle. Replace if worn or damaged.
2. The power cable assembly should be inspected periodically. If there are any cuts through the protective sheath or if gas
leaks are noted, replace the damaged assembly.
3. Do not continue to use torch if the electrode erodes to a length shorter than 16mm (0.63 inch) as shown in Figure 3-1.
WARNING
The torch head contains a gas flow check valve that acts in conjunction with the
flow switch and circuitry within the power source. This system prevents the torch
from being energized with high voltage if the torch switch is accidentally closed
when the heat shield is removed. ALWAYS REPLACE TORCH WITH THE APPROPRIATE
TORCH MANUFACTURED BY ESAB SINCE IT ALONE CONTAINS ESAB'S PATENTED
SAFETY INTERLOCK.
4. The gas flow check valve is part of the safety interlock and is permanently assembled in the torch head. The head must
be replaced if this valve malfunctions. The light spring force used to close the ball check can be felt by pushing on the
electrode when assembling the front end components.
Note
The electrode seat comes assembled in the front end of the torch. When using the XT consumables, make
sure the plunger, P/N 0558000511 (20324), is installed under the seat. If missing, remove seat and install
plunger. Make sure seat is tightened firmly with a wrench but do NOT overtighten.
3.2
DISASSEMBLY OF TORCH - REMOVING CONSUMABLES
1. To disassemble the front end, hold the torch with the shield in an upright position as shown in Figure 3-2. This will prevent
the nozzle, electrode, and swirl baffle from falling free when the shield is removed.
2. If the torch is fixed and cannot be rotated upward, the alternate method of disassembly is to disassemble the electrode,
swirl baffle and nozzle as above being careful not to damage them by letting them fall.

3.3
INSTALLATION / OPERATION
INSTALLING CONSUMABLES - ASSEMBLY OF TORCH
Note
Apply a small amount of lubricant - 0558000443 (17672), supplied in spare parts kit, to the heat shield or to
the o-ring as shown in Figure 3-1. Check o-ring for damage whenever the shield is removed. Replace if
necessary. O-ring part number is 0558000514 (950790).
1. To assemble with the torch front end facing up, assemble electrode, swirl baffle, tip and heat shield in that order as shown
in Figure 3-2. The swirl baffle is symmetrical and it can be positioned either way. Tighten heat shield snugly to hold the
parts in firm contact with each other and the torch head. Do not overtighten the heat shield.
2. If the torch is fixed and cannot be rotated upward, the alternate method of assembly is to assemble the electrode, swirl
baffle and nozzle as above and drop them into the heat shield. Then thread the heat shield upward into the torch body.

MAINTENANCE
4.1 MAINTENANCE
The power cable and switch leads in the service line should be inspected periodically. If there are any cuts through the protective sheath or if gas leaks are noted, replace the damaged component.
WARNING
4.1.1
Before any maintenance is attempted on this torch, make sure the POWER SWITCH
on the power source is in the OFF position and the PRIMARY INPUT POWER is
DEENERGIZED.
Disassembly of Service Line (refer to Figure 4-1)
1.
Lay the line out straight.
2.
Pull flex support back and remove the tape from around the switch lead splices.
3.
Free the switch by cutting the leads close to the splices.
4.
Replacement switches have extra long leads to make up for any loss due to cutting.
5.
Remove the rubber boot from the inlet end of the cable.
6.
Remove the tape that secures the sheath at each end.
7.
Pull the sheath off the cable (over small fitting at torch end).
Note
The switch leads wrapped around the power cable are secured with tape several places along the cable.
WARNING
8.
BE SURE to loosen fittings using 2 wrenches during disassembly. Failure to do so
could result in serious injury to the operator.
The leads, switch cord plug, and strain relief can now be removed. See Figure 4-1, Step 3.
CAUTION
DO NOT remove the white tape that forms a band around the power cable at each
end. The sheath is taped to the cable in front of the band which acts as a shoulder
to prevent the sheath from sliding back on the cable. Replacement cables have
this tape in place.
If the switch leads are to be replaced, replace with 16 AWG STRANDED COPPER,
600- VOLT, 90° C (194° F) INSULATED WIRE.
9.
4.2
Reassemble in reverse order.

Standard Consumables
These consumable parts will give good cut quality on light to medium thick metals when used within the recommended cutting range of the plasma power source. The reversible electrode design gives extra electrode life and
enables the safety interlock for operator safety.
The use of other than genuine ESAB consumables and replacement parts can cause personal
injury and / or damage to the equipment.
WARNING
ESAB does not warrant parts for its equipment which are not furnished by ESAB. The use of
parts that are not furnished by ESAB does not automatically void ESAB's warranties for its
equipment. Any obligations otherwise arising from ESAB's warranty will be voided if, but only
if, the design, manufacture or composition of parts or components not supplied by ESAB are
a material cause of the malfunction or poor performance of (or damage to) the equipment.

The larger electrode diameter increases the electrode mass to provide improved cooling and reduced wear on
medium to heavy cutting applications when correctly used within the recommended cutting range of the plasma
power source. The reversible electrode design gives extra electrode life and enables the safety interlock for operator safety.
The use of other than genuine ESAB consumables and replacement parts can cause personal
injury and / or damage to the equipment.

“XT” Consumables
The “XT” electrode and nozzle design extends the metal cutting thickness range and improves cut speed and
edge quality for production plasma cutting applications. The torch safety interlock is enabled through the “nonconsumable” plunger installed behind the removable seat in the torch head.
The use of other than genuine ESAB consumables and replacement parts can cause personal
injury and / or damage to the equipment.
