Arcair SLICE Battery Pack contentsClick image to enlarge

Arcair, an ESAB brand, has completed a major upgrade to its SLICE exothermic cutting system.

Improvements include a more ergonomic torch grip and oxygen flow lever, as well as a better connection between the grip and the rubber shield that protects the operator’s hand from molten spray when piercing.
To extend striker life, the new striker assembly incorporates a slide mechanism that enables the operator to expose the copper ignition bar in small increments, shielding the fresh portion. Arcair has improved the battery ignition source for faster recharging of a dead battery and incorporated an over charging safeguard and a better visual indication of battery condition. Lastly, the SLICE Battery Pack and SLICE Utility Pack options now come in a heavy duty black plastic case with molded-in storage compartments and instructions inside the lid.
Exothermic cutting uses a stream of pure oxygen and a consumable steel rod to create an 8,000 to 10,000 oF flame that cuts, burns or pierces virtually any metallic, non-metallic or composite material, including steel, aluminum, concrete and firebrick. Once ignited by a spark from the striker, the patented SLICE cutting rod sustains the burn without constant electrical power.
Arcair offers four SLICE Pack options:
• The SLICE Utility Pack, which includes everything required for cutting except the 12-volt battery and oxygen cylinder.
• The SLICE Battery Pack, which includes the improved 12-volt ignition source but no cylinder.
• SLICE Complete Pack, which includes the new ignition source and 55 cu. Ft. oxygen cylinder in a metal carrying case, making it well suited for forcible entry situations where seconds count.
• SLICE Industrial Pack, which accommodates a large oxygen cylinder to extend cutting time, a 12-volt AC battery charger and new ignition source.
