PACIFIC Industrial Supplies has released an Esab power source for use in professional, heavy duty repair, maintenance and assembly work where mains power is unavailable.
The KHM 2x400 PS provides 40kVA, allowing allows two welders to weld with 400A at the same time. It offers a wide working range, dual welding and the ability to do carbon rod gouge work. The unit is powered by a reliable water-cooled Perkins engine, with battery and electric start.
Simultaneous use by two welders allows greater efficiency and cost savings. Coated electrodes of up to 8mm can be welded while low, 20 aminimum, current allows welding with very small electrodes. Using the arc force control allows welding of cellulosic electrodes and polarity change for pipe line welding work.
Features include separate gouging outlets, hour meter, over-speed protection and an indicator for battery charge/low fuel/oil pressure. Thermal load, arc force, voltmeter and earth fault protection mean that the user gets a fully-optioned unit, with all the required safety features.
The power generation capability allows the user the versatility of doing other work, like drilling, grinding and cutting, while being able to provide lighting when required. The unit is delivered for stationary work, but can be transported around the work site with optional site tow equipment.
