Leveraging its expertise in high pressure gas management, Cobham worked closely with operators and end-users to develop its suite of breaching torch systems available in three sizes to fit your mission needs.


This suite of oxygen cutting tools uses a precisely controlled oxygen stream to produce a torch with temperatures in excess of 10,000 F.  The torch systems feature portable high pressure (4,500 psig**) composite oxygen cylinders for longer operational duration and a valve and regulator assembly for rapid and discreet cutting through a variety of materials.


A common valve, regulator and torch handle seamlessly integrates three different size cylinders. A balanced regulator provides constant flow for predictable cutting. Rods can be replaced quickly using the the torch handle quick disconnect feature and a flame arrestor provides increased safety. The torch handle has an integrated on/off mechanism and flow selector.


Cobham lightweight, low-profile, extended duration exothermic breacher systems offer advanced design and ruggedness compared to legacy systems by applying lightweight composite cylinder design, high pressure gas management expertise and manufacturing technology to meet operator needs in extreme and hostile environments.
