ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced Marathon Pac™ Ultra, a new 1,100-lb. bulk welding wire drum, that features a robust outer box and reinforced corners for stabilizing the inner drum to prevent wire movement during shipping. Marathon Pac Ultra retains ESAB’s trademarked octagonal inner drum, as well as ESAB’s reverse coiling technology to ensure that the wire comes out straight for greater process stability, less spatter and better targeting, positioning the wire at the center of the weld joint.
Marathon Pac Ultra holds 22% more wire than the previous ESAB drums and 100 lbs. more than competitive drums. Marathon Pac Ultra can provide an additional 8 to 16 or more hours of welding time before needing to rethread the drum, depending on the process and parameters.
A new desiccant and plastic bag with VCI (volatile corrosion inhibitor) protect the wire against moisture and corrosion.
ESAB packages many of its most popular solid wires in Marathon Pac Ultra drums, including OK Aristorod non-copper-coated MIG wire for superb feedability, arc stability and spatter control; Purus MIG wire for reduced post-weld cleanup and Spoolarc premium copper-coated MIG wires for any quality carbon steel or low alloy application.
