Special tools for Thermit® welding

In addition to our consumables, we offer machines, devices and equipment for the different Thermit® welding processes for all types of tracks, e.g.:

  • flame cutting and preheating, autogenous technology
  • Aligning the rail joint
  • Work equipment for performing the various Thermit® welding processes, e.g. mould shoes, slag pans, clamping devices, preheating burners
  • Machining the rail joint after performing a Thermit® weld

    SMARTWELD SPARK

    Secure, precise ignition of Thermit® portions

    The innovative SMARTWELD SPARK ensures reliable and precise initial ignition of the Thermit® portions and is therefore an alternative to igniters which are considered to be hazardous substance.

    Benefits

    • Total elimination of as hazardous goods declared igniters for import and transportation
    • Significant increase of work safety due to omission of hot and open burning igniters
    • Applicable for all crucibles supplied by Elektro-Thermit
    • Service life of one charged battery for at least 20 ignition processes, which means more than one shift before recharging
    • Cost saving consumables

    Features

    • Initial spark using electrodes
    • Voltage < 60 V (according DIN 62135)
    • Shock proof and impact resistance frame
    • Integrated LED-lights as well as warning light & alert when ignition starts
    • Weight: 1.8 kg (without case); Dimensions: 340 x 220 x 75 mm incl. battery    
    • Offered as a kit in a convenient case incl. recharger, one battery,  1 pack/10 pieces single use electrodes
