Why Aquaflame? The powerful yet compact generator converts distilled/deionized water into hydrogen and oxygen gases by electrolysis. A wide range of tips are provided from 0.50mm to 1.50mm meaning that Aquaflame torches will perform standard soldering tasks such as re-sizing or re-tipping. The larger tips and extra power mean that it is also capable of soldering platinum – Aquaflame truly is at the heart of the workshop and no other soldering systems would be required.

A clean precise environmentally friendly flame is obtained by using Methyl-Ethyl-Keytone (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. Going one step further, the operator will find the light-weight torch handle easy to hold and for safety, it contains a built-in Flashback Arrestor. When using liquid flux or flux based paste solders, you will see less fire scale which is commonly found on 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) in plastic fabrication as this method requires no other materials or compounds and can finish intricate shapes quickly and easily.

The Aquaflame is available in (3) models. The Model 500 is ideal for soldering Silver, Gold, Stainless Steel Medical Instruments and some Titanium Alloys. The Models 800 and 1200 are ideal for the above-mentioned metals plus are better suited for soldering Platinum and additional operators can be added.
