Furick Cup SSBBW #20 Hybrid Ceramic/Glass Welding Cup
Part# : FUR-SSBBW
Price : $50.00
Note: This cup requires the use of a large diameter gas lens (45V44) to fit #9 & #20 torches or the Furick Torch Mount Kit to fit #17, #18 and #26 torches. If you have one already you can surely use it, but keep in mind that import brands tend to yield lower results.
The Furick Cup SSBBW #20 Wedling Cup Kit comes with one full cup, one spare glass, and a spare diffuser. This unique hybrid cup features a ceramic mounting attachment that you secure the glass cup to via Furick's standard o-ring connection. Although the upfront cost of this unit is slightly higher, the benefit of this unique combination is that replacement glass cylinders will be much cheaper to replace than an entire cup.
The SSBBW cup is excellent for welding bigger, thicker, and rounder applications. It is great for stainless steel, inconel and titanium, but if you are welding smaller tubing in any of those materials choose a FUPA #12 or the Moose Knuckle #14.
The SSBBW is a common cup used in building schedule manifolds and bigger stainless structures. Due to the nature of the glass, "walking the cup" is not recommended with the glass Furick Cups.
When mounting the SSBBW, if you have a #17, #18 or #26 size torch you will need a #17 torch mount kit, and if you have a #9 or #20 torch you will need to have a 45V44 gas lens. If you have one already you can surely use it, but keep in mind that import brands tend to yield lower quality results.
The Furick SSBBW is recommended for stainless steel, titanium, inconel, and other space grade alloys. It works best on thicker/larger applications where you need spread out gas coverage.
It is recommended with all the BIG Diffuser Cups that you start off on low amp settings to stabilize the arc, making sure you will not arc off the diffuser. If diffuser arcing occurs you will have to clean/regrind the tungsten. You will not hurt the diffuser on low amps but if you arc with high amps you can deteriorate the diffuser.
