WALTER Surface Technologies has announced its next generation of SURFOXTM weld cleaning systems. The fleet includes two upgraded fieldwork units with the SURFOX Turbo and SURFOX Mini and two upgraded units for heavy-duty shop use with the SURFOX 206 and 306.

WALTER is also introducing a one-of-a-kind all-new unit with the SURFOX MAX, combining the portability of the fieldwork units and the cleaning power of the heavy-duty SURFOX 306, for versatile, heavy-duty weld cleaning in fieldwork applications.

“Our new SURFOX models represent a big leap forward in weld cleaning technology, with increased cleaning power on all units to help users clean dirtier welds faster,” said Philip Laforest, senior product manager, safety and SURFOX, at WALTER. “Users will be able to clean weld discoloration and contaminants, and guarantee passivation on TIG, MIG and even STICK welds thanks to the power of the SURFOX MAX and the SURFOX 306.”

The SURFOX MAX and the SURFOX 306 now also include dual-user functionality, allowing two users to clean welds using the same unit.

Unique to WALTER, industrial SURFOX 206 and 306 models also offer an integrated reservoir to keep the electrolyte solution free from contaminants, as well as Dynamic Flow technology to ensure the optimal amount of cleaning liquid is released through the wand upon contact with the metal.

The new generation of SURFOX units also includes features such as an LCD display panel that allows for more precise settings and functionality.
