The Broco BR-22 Underwater Cutting Torch is ergonomically designed for diver comfort and reducing forearm fatigue. The torch is constructed from durable high-impact and corrosion resistant materials. Most metal parts are brass. The non-conductive flexible coupler joining the oxygen control valve to the torch head is a key safety feature, unique in design and found only in Broco torches.
Broco torches are easy to maintain. The flash arrestor is brass with an internal filter screen. The large collet nut is knurled to assure the diver a solid grasp. Acme threads prevent binding from mud or other debris insuring quick, reliable rod insertion and retention. Interchangeable collets accommodate 3/8" and 1/4" diameter cutting rods.
The Broco BR-22 can also be used as a welding electrode holder. The BR-22 Cutting Torch is built to deliver years of trouble-free performance at minimum cost. Spare parts kits are available.
