The SLICE Utility Pack permits you to use the exothermic cutting process to cut virtually any metallic, non-metallic or composite material.  This package has the basic items needed to do a cutting job packed in a rugged tool box.  Just supply oxygen and an ignition source and you are ready to cut.  The power cables on the torch and striker assemblies in this pack should be used with a 12-volt battery only.  Also included is the collet extension and shield for added protection when piercing.
TIPS FOR CUTTING
Normal cutting is done by using a drag technique.  Once the rod is in contact with the piece to cut, drag the rod in the direction of the cut.  If the operator can't see the kerf, the speed of cut is too fast.  If the rod is being used too rapidly the progress of the cut is too slow and the rod is being used without cutting.  REMEMBER, the cutting rods consume as long as the oxygen is flowing.  Maintain the proper travel speed at all times.  NOTE: Use a sawing motion when material to be cut is thicker then 1-1/2 to 2 inches to ensure a complete melt through.
Use a smooth motion to complete the cut.  Be careful not to hit nearby material with the rod when cutting in "close quarters."  After completing the cut, release the oxygen control lever in the handle.  THE CUTTING ROD WILL CONTINUE TO BURN AS LONG AS OXYGEN IS SUPPLIED.  Hold the torch safely away from you until the rod cools.
TIPS FOR PIERCING SURFACES
The SLICE Torch can be used to pierce solids.  Special procedures must be used when piercing.  When piercing, use a collet extension (and shield).  This extension adds life to the torch and hand shield, and greatly improves operator safety and comfort.  Always hold the torch at arm's length and wear plenty of protective clothing, eye and ear protection.  Cutting rods can get stuck inside the pierced hole.  If possible, remove the cutting rod from the hole before releasing the oxygen lever.  With any thermal cutting equipment blowback is most likely to occur when the user is piercing holes.  Cutting rods may burn unevenly.  Slowly swirl the cutting rod as it enters a pierced hole.   Cutting rods may burn out on the sides.  Correct the problem by removing the cutting rod from the pierce point, shut the oxygen off, and replace the cutting rod.
To pierce follw these steps:
The pierce procedure is also used to cut concrete.  By piercing a series of holes where a user wants to cut concrete, the concrete becomes easier to fracture.  This helps reduce the time it would take to actually cut the concrete.
The oxygen consumption rate for the SLICE cutting rods at 80 psi is 7 to 7.5 cfm for the 1/4" diameter cutting rods and 11 to 12 cfm for the 3/8" diameter cutting rods.  This rate will vary if a different operating pressure is used.
