most of the coolers that I am familiar with have a working pressure of 40-50 psi.... so might make sense if they could withstand twice that for safetys sake.... I would lean toward the oem style clamp... they can't cost much.... what about crimping them??.... if a clamp let go during a weld it sure could be no fun at all... coolant... everywhere...

It seems Trafimet still offers a 555 torch. So, I could be wrong that it might be a Binzel.

Who knows.

Here is a pic of the pics on the website of the italian site. It doesn't even show the 555 on the USA site.

I was thinking the same thing, But what is the difference between the ones on the tig coolers and the ones on the mig coolers.

Like I pointed out before. Most tig torches are actually tied off with thin Stainless steel wire. Wrapped twice then twisted around and snipped off.


I do know that the pump in the Esseti is a by pass rotor. In other words it doesn't seal the rotor to the pump sides like an impeller or gear or the like.

It has a rotor that has grooves/pockets cut on the sides of a plain round disk with an intake side with an opening and then a discharge side with another opening. In other words it's simply the disk spinning around with those little pockets that grabs the water and pulls it around and out the other side.

Was really neat to see the design since I've never seen anything like it.


I ordered the OEM's so we'll have to see once they show up.

Default Water cooling Req....

Jen
the Miller Coolmates are used on both TIG and Mig units... ....................
I would be curious as to what pressure and fluid flow ... BTU transfer your unit has...

I have seen some really dodgy looking homemade cobbledy units that were made from pretty near discarded claptrap... that worked just fine... but most of those were not running the high amperage/heat input that your unit is capable of...

was mistaken...on my initial guess of unit pressure, it is higher.. looked up the Coolmate 4 and the pressure relief valve is set at 60 psi..... (chose the Coolmate 4 because it came the closest to what I thought your units requirements are)

http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o624v_mil.pdf

so I would guess that yours is similar... it has to force enough water through those tiny passages to carry off mondo BTU's....

Aircraft safety wire is ideal for this, and nice to have around any mechanic shop. I'd use that since it doesn't get brittle like cheap wire and is quicker to remove than cutting an Oetiker clamp with end nippers. Safety wire pliers (get the small ones) are good to have too but not mandatory if you have needlenose or duckbills with good jaws.

I did order the clamps and it turns out one size should work but the other will not. Bummer. the clamps on the gun are 9.5 and 8.7.

The gun came apart super easy. Almost like it wanted to.

I have attached pic's. I really wish I could of found parts to use with the stock 555 torch since it's about 1" shorter and actually slightly lighter.

Here's the pic's.

I realize this is an old thread now, but wanted to do an update.


This welder Yeti Esseti has been a wonderful purchase. it has made me more money and has paid me back, time and time and time again.

I've changed the water cooler, coolant 2 x. and up till last week it has been so rock steady the only real problem is the Push Pull gun which I use all the time and it needing service on the trigger cable and once running a hole threw the gas cable with it rubbing on the Lucky 13 metal lathe.

The recent repair was a discovery that the hose for the water pump had came loose and the reason seemed to be an over pressure condition and a little loose clamp. this has literally been the only problem with this machine. The water pump pressure switch did not work so will have to replace it at some point.

I knew something was wrong because of the uneasy sound it was making.

I then noticed the coolant was low so added some. I then noticed it was not circulating so removed the line and this primed the pump and noticed the coolant on the floor immediately.



this was remedied with a shortening of the hose and tighening all the hose clamps and resealing of some thread fittings.

i flushed the hoses and the coolant tank till the fluid was clean and clear. and added coolant again.

I will pull the covers off once in the new shop for a thorough cleaning.

Otherwise this welder has been a solid machine. i'd buy one again in a heart beat.

I tried to buy a new hose assmbly for the push pull gun from Binzel and what a cluster. The assembly does not come complete. It is only the main lines with the out casing. No fittings, end connections nor any other thing for nearly 900.00. I returned it..

I called the company and complained.


So, overall it's been an amazing machine.
