Furick Cup FUPA #12 Glass Welding Cup w/ Titanium Protector
Part# : FUR-FUPA-GLASS-COVER
Price : $65.00
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 FUPA #12 w/ Cover Kit comes with two cups, three spare o-rings, one spare diffuser, and one titanium protective cover. The included titanium cover slips over the end of the cups to add a layer of protection against accidental bumps. The Furick FUPA #12 covered glass covered welding cup uses anywhere from 25-30+ CFH of argon flow depending on the application. It is recommended for use with 3/32" tungsten and carries a 180 amp rating on constant amperage, which can be increased if using pulse settings. The FUPA Cup carries Furick's patented (US9338873) double diffuser design for optimum gas coverage. Don't settle for inferior knockoffs!
All Furick Weld Cups are hand made in the USA from laboratory grade borosilicate glass. Due to the nature of the glass, "walking the cup" is not recommended with the glass Furick Cups. The FUPA 12 is recommended for mild steel, stainless steel, chromoly, titanium, inconel and other space grade alloys. It works best on thinner/smaller applications such as header tubes and chassis tubing.
Replacement diffuser screens are available! Install these with the cupped screen facing inside cup and push flat side into cup evenly. It may take a few tries to get the screen even. Make sure there is an even gap between the both screens, and that the screen facing the end is tight against the wall of the glass. For foolproof installation be sure to pickup one of the new Furick Cup Diffuser Screen Install Tool.
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. Also be careful not to drop or hit cups against hard objects, as we all know the fragile nature of glass!
