  • Union Carbide Corporation Cable 281

    Hi,
    I don't even know for sure if this is for welding. Can anyone tell me what this cable is for? It is marked: Union Carbide Corporation Cable 281

    Thanks.

    Looks like a hose, not a Cable

      It certainly is. Goes to show what I know. What would it be for?

        I think I found it. TIG hose, right?

          "Cable, Hose?"

          How long is it? I see it has brass fittings. Could be used in area code "281?"

          That be in Texas

          Worth a try

            It's about 24'.

            Perhaps it does belong in Texas!

              24' Hose

              Okay, we're solving this mystery. Next question; where did you find it?

                It came out of a garage. There was a TIG welder there.

                  I'll bet it was used for a TIG Torch! The "281" might have been a design type of hose, (Goodyear, Gates, they all have their #'s). Probably goes from the flow meter to the gas hose on the torch.

                  Whew!

                    First thin's first,
                    Is it electrically continous? If it ain't then it ain't a TIG power hose.
                    Which it prolly ain't, 'cause the fittings are wrong. (unless it's some strange, non-universal style.)

                      "Gas Hose"

                      pumpkinhead: It doesn't need to be electrically conductive to be used as a gas hose on a 2 or 3 piece torch. Those are "female" fittings on each end, and could have been used as an "extension" hose from the inert gas hose to the TIG torch, possibly?

                      The mystery lingers on.....................

                        things we can tell by looking at it: 1. it's a hose, 2. it's for inert gas/fluid (no hash marks on the hex), 3. it seems to be built for fairly high pressure, due to it's crimped ends and end sealing fittings.

                              Lemme think about this, hmmm, o.k., a twin TIG hose is siamesed at the torch and has a 5/8" fitting for de gaz at the other end, so, nope it ain't an extension for twin hosed gas.
                              A water cooled torch gas line is also 5/8", so, nope again.
                              Numba three, and mucho important, "extension"???? Dood, extensions have a male and a female fitting, to use this as an extension would require three hoses, two with two male fittings (normal one piece TIG hose) and this thing.

                              Geez, just 'cause it was near a TIG unit doesn't mean it has anything to do with welding, there is a lot of non-related stuff in a whole buch of shops.
