Hello I'm wondering can I weld with esab 15.14 flux wire from my tecarc 300s single phase?
Yes it will run on any substantial power source.
You need a heavy gas ideally 80/20.
For a 1.2 wire these conditions work wonderful.
Should give 180-210 amps.
80 argon 20 c02 is that?
Keep your stick out at 15-20mm.
A good 18lpm of gas. 20% CO in Argon required. Any less it doesn’t weld as great. You can just about get by with 15%.
It starts to spray at 160A. You can weld V-up on thicker material comfortably at 180-200A. Go straight in 90° or a slight push angle. Staying on the leading edge.
In the flat a good 10°-15° Drag angle.
Keep the voltage under 25-26V or it gives gas tracks under the slag.
Thanks for all replies, my mig has dc - but no dc + and I'm sure it needs to have dc+ for this wire doesn't it, my welder has a socket for dc - but next to it there is a cap where + should be but no socket
Yeah you need the torch to be DC+. DCEP.
Same as normal mig with solid wire.
You should be able to swap the polarity inside the machine or just add an extra dinse socket.
Tecarc do repairs, on one of their own machines it shouldn’t take 5 minutes.
This is how it looks
That’s fine, you’ve got a negative return (earth) terminal so your torch is Electrode Positive
So does that meen I still need to get it sorted to use 15.14 wire?
No just weld as you would normally
