Hypertherm Powermax 45XP/65/85/105 Electrode #220842
Plasma cutter electrodes for the Hypertherm Powermax 65 are available at Welders Supply in packs of five. Plasma cutting is hard on electrode elements, even during normal plasma cutting. The Hypertherm Powermax 45XP/65/85/105 Electrode #220842 is what you need to keep productivity high. Every time an arc is produced, the plasma cutter electrode element receives a huge negative surge, instantly taking it from cold to an extremely hot. Touching your powered Hypertherm Powermax plasma cutter’s nozzle to metal causes an intense spark to heat the gas into plasma. The plasma gas is full of particles which race past the electrode, pulling atoms away from the hot electrode surface. This is normal wear and tear, but it works on the emitting element. Pits are created in the surface. If damaged electrodes aren’t replaced in time, there could be serious harm to the torch. The electrode could even explode within the torch. It doesn’t matter how long you cut. The key is how frequently you ignite the torch. The more often you work, the more likely electrode damage could be caused. The pit in the electrode element should be checked often. Hypertherm Powermax 45XP/65/85/105 Electrode #220842 is specially designed for the Powermax 45 XP, Powermax 65 and Powermax 85 plasma cutters, assuring maximum effectiveness and durability. This 5 pack of electrodes from Welder Supply is an excellent, cost effective option. View our other plasma cutter consumable parts.
