Why Aquaflame? The powerful yet compact generator converts distilled/deionized water into oxyhydrogen by electrolysis. A wide range of tips are provided from ID 0.31mm to 0.60mm meaning that Aquaflame torches will perform standard soldering tasks such as re-sizing or re-tipping as well as more intricate soldering. Aquaflame truly is at the heart of the workshop and no other soldering systems are required.

A clean precise environmentally friendly flame is obtained by using Methyl-Ethyl-Ketone (MEK). This is far safer than the toxic/hazardous Methanol also known as Methyl Alcohol which is commonly used in other competitive torches. MEK is also much cleaner to run as it leaves no residue on the surgical steel tips. The operator will find the light-weight torch handle easy to hold and for safety, it contains a built-in anti Flashback Arrestor. When using liquid flux or flux based paste solders, you will see less fire scale which is usually found when working with silver.

Though extensively used in the jewelry industry, Aquaflame Systems are also used in the dental and other technical manufacturing industries making them ideal for precision soldering and micro welding. Aquaflame Torches are also widely used for acrylic flame polishing (edge polishing on acrylic edges) in plastic fabrication as this method requires no other materials or compounds and can finish intricate shapes quickly and efficiently.

The Aquaflame is available in 3 models. Model 500 is ideal for soldering silver, gold, stainless steel, medical instruments and some titanium alloys. and the Model 800 or 1200 are ideal for the above-mentioned metals plus are better suited for soldering platinum. Additional torches are also available for the 800 and 1200 models
