The launch of COMET Edge on the 21st February 2011 will enhance the CIGWELD Professional line with a uniquely designed regulator, superior in quality, proven in performance and unsurpassed in safety.
COMET Edge has taken regulators to a new level.
CIGWELD have been manufacturing gas equipment since 1922, and since then regulators have come a long way.
From the original cumbersome chunky brass RA Series that were limited by cylinder pressures which have more than doubled in the last 50 years, to the introduction of the CIGWELD COMET range in 1988 that reinvented the look of regulators in the Australian market today.
Now, in 2011, CIGWELD have introduced a new member to the family, the COMET Edge Regulator which is significantly advanced in both its features and design.
This is the biggest revolution in regulator design in over 20 years, incorporating added gauge guards that ensure the regulator fits snugly within the cylinder profile protecting it from hard knocks and the accidental damage of a falling cylinder.
This unique design feature guarantees a robust and durable exterior unsurpassed by other regulators on the market.
In addition to the gauge guard, the COMET Edge boasts an encapsulated seat for precise pressure and flow control, colour coded pressure gauges and control knobs, a Gas Guard safety device and most importantly the reassurance of quality through a 5 year warranty and compliance with AS4267.This extensive range of functional and design features ensure a user-friendly regulator with safety and longevity in mind.
