EGL Bombarders and Choke

BOMBARDER TRANSFORMERS: 15 KVA Bombarder Transformers are suitable for use with all applications, and are generally the recommended choice for this reason. 22 KVA models are best suited for large scale, full-time production shops processing 15-25mm tubing and using primarily 60-120 milliamp electrodes. The EGL model 4600 variable controlled choke is a DC reactance device using a dial Variac. When used in conjunction with the EGL milliamp gauge (item number 733300) the model 4600 will provide precise control of bombarding levels combined with ease of operation and reliability.

*The use of an EGL Bombarding Milliamp Gauge is recommended.
