Thread: Setting your gauges for Argon and Mix gas

  1. #1

    Default Setting your gauges for Argon and Mix gas

    We've had a few questions on TIG starting gas settings and how to translate the flow from "cubic feet per hour" and "liters per minute". Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what the numbers is on the guage you provided for me with my 250. I know the 304 I work on likes that little ball to be just above the 15. She starts to get ugly if you let it drop any further. Thanks for the info. I will print it out and keep it with my instruction manuel.

    Depending on the gas and metal, yes (porosity, just like atmospheric contamination) and no as the argon (inert) you an get away with more.

    Always stay within the recommended ranges. If you have some air movement or need a longer stick-out you can add some more gas, but enough to get the job done.

    Biggest problem you will have is your wallet though. It's gauge will be going down too
