SPARES / CONSUMABLES FOR WP26, WP18 & WP17 TIG TORCHES

The WP17 TIG torch is rated to 150A DC and 115A in AC. One of the most popular torch types, the WP17 takes Weldcraft® compatible consumables listed here. The spares listed on the page are also suitable for the water cooled WP18 TIG torch – which is rated to 350A DC and 260A AC and the WP26 TIG torch – rated to 200A DC and 150A AC (Values quoted are at 60% duty cycle)
Below is an exploded diagram of a WP17 TIG Torch, showing the common consumables used:

  1. Torch bodies – Available as rigid (with or without gas valve), flexible and pencil.
  2. Back caps – Available as short, medium or long. Long and medium except full length tungsten electrodes whilst the short back cap is useful for intricate, difficult to reach areas.
  3. Collets – Essentially the tungsten holder.  The body screws onto the torch, gripping the collet which in turn pinches the tungsten and keeps it in place. Far right (not numbered) is a short collet.  The collet should be purchased as the same size as the tungstens being used.
  4. Collet Body – Screws down onto the collet to secure the tungsten in place. The collet body should be purchased as the same size as the collet and tungstens being used.
  5. Ceramics – To be used with a standard collet body. Different sizes to affect the shielding gas coverage. The larger the ceramic, the larger the shielded area.
  6. Long Ceramic / Nozzle
  7. Collet
  8. Gas Lens Body – A gas lens can be used in place of the standard collet body. Its function is to aid flow of the shielding gas and decrease turbulence. Can be purchased as a small or large size lens.
  9. Gas Lens Ceramic – To be used with a gas lens.
  10. Gas Lens Ceramic Long
