Quick Overview

Thorium-Dioxide-Doped Tungsten Electrodes Containing 1.8% - 2.2% THO2.

The most common type of electrode used on carbon and stainless steel.The higher thoria content in the EWTh-2 electrode causes the operating characteristic improvements to be more pronounced than in the lower thoria content EWTh-1. To use Thoriated electrodes for alternating current welding, balling of the end can be accomplished by briefly, and carefully, welding with direct current electrode positive prior to welding with alternating current. During alternating current welding, the balled end does not melt and so emission is not as good as from a liquid ball on an EWP electrode.
