XP8 300A

Air Cooled MIG Welding Torch

Rating: 300A, 8.7kW, Mixed Gas (80/20) @ 80% Duty Cycle, EN60974-7 .030″ – .045″ / 0.8mm to 1.2mm wires

Selecting the correct XP8 Torch

Amperages and duty cycles alone are arbitrary measures of a torches capability.
For a more accurate appreciation wire type, gas type, flow rate and open circuit voltage must all be taken into consideration.
The XP8 is rated in Amps as a guideline but the Kilowattage requirement of a given application provides a far more accurate method for calculating torch selection.

Kilowattage represents the total power rating required and is calculated as follows:

Welding Amps x Welding Volts
= kW


(Amps x Volts = Watts , 1000 Watts = 1 kW)

Table to show the affect on XP8 performance when using alternate gas types

      Mixed Gas (80/20) xx Mixed Gas (95/5) xx 100% CO2  
  Model   Amps kW   Amps kW   Amps kW  
x XP8-300A x 300 8.7 x 280 8.4 x 375 11.7 x

Note: All ratings are based on a nominal gas flow of 18lpm. A lower gas flow will result in an increase in working temperature but it will not have any adverse affect as long as the gas flow is within the accepted limits for the welding amperage.
