Anyone know the difference in the two tips?

These two tips are for a S45 torch. They are actually the same size, pictures are not.
Is there any advantage of one over the other??

Keith,
the one on the left #PDO102-10 is a 40amp
the right #PDO116-08 is rated 20-30 amp
the 3rd not shown PDO103-09 is rated at 20-40amp
and there are also three electrdos PRO105, PRO110, and PRO106
found this in the Trafimet Cataloge
hope this helps

the one on the left #PDO102-10 is a 40amp
the right #PDO116-08 is rated 20-30 amp

Thats odd when i ordered fine cut tips from Longevity they sent me the 40amp...
This is good info...maybe someone in the warehouse will see this and get them in the right bins.
And maybe I'll get better cuts when cutting something thicker.

samsberr and Keith,
hey I have no knowlage of S45 torch
this is just the information I took out of the Trafimet Cataloge
and maybe the amps and the set up in these tips and electrodes is what controls the kerf

when I first saw it I thought maybe the first one was a drag tip. It looks like it has the little offsets.

On the Longevity web site they call the Left one a SMALL tip and the one on the right a LARGE tip. So they have a 40 amp tip as the small and the 30 amp the Large, That is confusing!!! It does not appear to be a warehouse problem, but a listing problem,,,,

Keith,
google Trafimet Cataloge there is a 228 page one,and there are 2 page ones with no info just part numbers and I do believe 2-3 versions of the large cataloge
that gives some info

Your probably right...
I'm going to try some test cuts and see if there's any difference.
I'll post results later.

found this on the large tip kit on Longevity so I just copied and past, has nothing about amps but does say about finer cut

Our durable Pilot Arc Large Electrodes, Large Tips, along with our Swirl Rings and Shield cups combine for a finer cut
with our Pilot Arc Longevity Plasma Cutter Torches. These consumables are compatible with the following plasma cutters:

I think the PR0105 Electrode is for service with a PD0102-xx tips (10 for 1mm orifice), thats the flat one with the little nubs
Likewise I think the PR0110 electrode is for service with the PD0116-xx (06=.6mm, 08=.8mm, and so on) thats the other one
And finally I think the PR0106 electrode if for service with PD0103-xx (09 for .9mm and so on), those are longer and not shown
I have made a Trafimet decoder ring because I got tired of trying to fathom their catalogs, if someone likes i will post it
It would be nice to have a single resource for applying the Trafimet electrodes, tips, etc, especially for us newbies...might lead to more sales.

This is an old thread, but the tip on the left is a drag tip, hence the four slots.

yep..

There seems to be a PD0116-10 nozzle (1mm) (40amp nozzle) that goes with the PR0110 electrode.


In the spreadsheet above, I think the PD0116-09 nozzle should actually be numbered PD0116-10
