Speciality Welds are pleased to offer the 'PVL' gas cutting torch as an alternative cutting product. This torch provides you with a totally different view of underwater cutting. Instead of the need for cutting electrodes or lances, it uses propylene gas (C3H6). The manufactures claim this cutting method offers up to six times faster cutting speeds, with the corresponding reduction in operational costs. The torch has a unique underwater lighter, which allows you to ignite the torch while underwater.

The torch is available with a 90° or 55° cutting head.


The cutting torch is available as the torch only, or in two kit forms:

Kit 1:
