Victor TechnologiesTM has announced it has introduced an improved ­Victor®Arcair® “boot” design that encapsulates the electrical connection between the torch and weld cable and eliminates the chance of accidental arcing. The patent-pending two-piece boot design is molded from a hard nylon reinforced fiber polymer made to withstand the substantial abuse in shop and field applications.

 “The new boot design encapsulates the power/air connection, virtually eliminating the chance of any accidental arcing,” says Jeff Henderson, Brand Manager, Victor Arcair.

Along with the conventional means of connecting the power cable using a crimped-on copper lug onto a welding cable, Arcair also offers a hook-up power kit. The kit contains the improved molded nylon fiber boot, with a twist lock-style power connection and air hose extending from the rear of the torch cable. This option allows the operator to connect or disconnect the incoming power lead and air line quickly and easily.

The conventional torch cable assembly can accept one 4/0 welding cable from the power supply and one ¾” diameter air hose assembly providing current and compressed air. The new design will be found on the Victor Arcair Angle-Arc series of torch and cable assemblies beginning in June 2014.
