Electro Arc Features in a Competitive Market

Simple to Operate – Electro Arc metal disintegrators are engineered to operate worry-free.  There are no warning indicators, no pressure gauges, or special adjustments to make after the disintegration process.   Power: The 15 or 10-KVA power supply (now includes 20KVA)  supplied with Electro Arc metal disintegrators allows you to disintegrate holes as large as 1

How long does my Electro Arc Coolant Last?

The coolant system is essential to the metal disintegrating process.  Your metal disintegrator heats the electrode to 5000 degrees in order to disintegrate the metal, the coolant cools this temperature down so that no damage occurs to the electrode or part during the process.  It also prevents the machine from overheating.  It is important to
