Gas Guard | KGP 10

Supplier: Kemppi Australia

Shielding gas has an important role for the weld pool, but released in the breathing air, it can create a serious risk for the welder. The KGP10 gas guard prevents this risk.

Price Guide: POA

A gas guard protects the welder

KGP10 gas guard prevents shielding gas from leaking into the breathing air from the gas hose between the power source and the welding gun even if the gas hose was faulty and the gas valve was left open.

The device gets its operating power from the welding cable connection, so the gas flow is active only when the welder pulls the torch trigger.

The KGP10 gas guard can be attached to the DIX connectors of any MIG/MAG welding power source.

It is particularly useful when using long extension cables (30 - 50 m) between the power source and the wire feeder. The gas guard prevents leaks in the interconnection cable.

A shielding gas leak can be lethal

A hole in the shielding gas hose can be lethal particularly in closed spaces with inadequate ventilation.

Faults in shielding gas hoses are difficult to recognise. In such a case, shielding gas may flow into the breathing air and replace oxygen. This may cause unconsciousness and even death.

Kemppi's KGP 10 gas guard prevents this kinds of hazards in the interconnection cable.
