Elevate your TIG Performance with Diamond Ground

Elevate your TIG Performance with Diamond Ground

Choosing the right tungsten electrode for your welding needs is a crucial decision that can have a large impact on both the quality of your welds and your bottom line. In this guide, we will explore the various factors to consider when selecting the perfect tungsten for your specific welding application. By making informed choices, you can not only achieve superior weld quality but also significantly reduce costs associated with electrode replacement, downtime, rework, and energy consumption.

Diamond Ground Products, Inc. introduced tungsten called TRI MIXTM, which combines three non-radioactive materials into one tungsten. The goal was to make the best possible tungsten by balancing the migration and evaporation rates while keeping the work function down. It starts and re-ignites very well, and it offers a particularly excellent service life in welding situations where welding cycles of at least 15 minutes are used. Technical studies in Japan have shown that mixed tungsten is very successful in optimizing welding, and thus it is expected that more of this type of product will become available in the U.S. market. The Japanese and European markets are already recognizing the benefits of combining three non-radioactive oxides into one electrode. Cryo-T tungsten is a Thoriated tungsten that has been treated with a multi-step cryogenic process. This process produces a more dense structure of the Thoriated tungsten blend. User testing has shown that Cryo-T tungsten has resulted in:
  • Easier starting compared to 2% Thoriated tungsten.
  • A much longer tip life compared to non-treated 2% Thoriated tungsten electrodes.
  • More consistent welds as a result of crisp starts.
  • Longer overall electrode life when compared to a 2% Thoriated tungsten.
  • Higher amperage tolerance as compared to a 2% Thoriated tungsten.
Cryo-T is recommended for all current users of 2% Thoriated tungsten.
