GasiQ Optimator introduced at Bell Equipment

Most companies working with MIG/MAG and TIG welding know very well the price of welding wire per kilogramme. But, relatively few are aware that the cost of the shielding gas is at least as high, per metre of weld. GasIQ Optimator is designed for one sole purpose, to reduce your consumption of expensive gas, generally by 30%. In just a few months of using your GasIQ Optimator you will get your money back – the rest is pure profit – according to the Swedish manufacturers.

In December last year 300 of the GasiQ Optimators were introduced into Bell Equipment, the proudly South African manufacturer of material handling equipment such as construction equipment from tractor loader backhoes and wheel loaders through to dozers, graders and forklifts for a broad spectrum of industries.

According to the South African suppliers Bell is already realising huge savings in gas costs – in the hundreds of thousands of rands.

Ordinary regulators are too slow
The Optimator produces an optimised shielding gas flow from the very first second. Any traditional regulator will not control the initial flow surge, which is unnecessarily high, and a very expensive waste. In worst cases this excessive surge represents up to 50% of your total shielding gas consumption! The higher the frequency of starts, the more gas is wasted and more money could be earned when you change to the GasiQ Optimator.

Quality without cost
The Optimator® provides optimal start flow that is approxiamately 25% of the initial flow of a conventional regulator. This saves you shielding gas. The smooth initial flow, in addition, enables higher quality of welds since you minimise the turbulence that often influences your welding process.

Optimator® in many shapes and variants
The Optimator® can be equipped with a lockable gas flow control. This is an advantage when you need to meet the highest welding quality demands, for instance ISO 9000 certification.
