When we are ready to weld with a WaterTorch, is it as if we were using a regular welding set up with two tanks supplying gas and oxygen?
A. You do use a regular welding setup, but you do not need to use the oxygen hose or valves (so you just keep them closed), because all the oxygen you need for the flame is already a part of the gas. The only time you add additional oxygen is when you are actually cutting steel. All other applications like preheating, soldering, brazing annealing, flame drilling, flame polishing, plasma spray, etc. are done with just the gas from the WaterTorch, needing no additional oxygen.
