Broco® Underwater Exothermic Cutting Rods
Burning in excess of 10,000° F at the tip, Broco Underwater Exothermic Cutting Rods cut or melt virtually any known material. Broco’s patented rod design features alloy core wires retained by circular crimps. The special design prevents burnback into the torch. Exothermic Cutting Rods can be bent 90 degrees or more to access hard to reach places without restricting oxygen flow or causing insulation to split or flake off.
These rods may be used with a maximum of 150 amps to assist in the burning process and have no electrical requirement. Once ignited, they continue to burn as long as oxygen is supplied or until the rod is consumed. Broco Underwater Exothermic Cutting Rods are available in 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch diameters. Standard length is 18 inches. Broco offers 36 inch Exothermic Cutting Rods for heavier jobs allowing more burn time between rod changes.
