What does adding thorium oxide do for the tungsten electrode?

To determine

The reason of adding thorium oxide to the tungsten electrode.

Explanation

The main reason of adding thorium oxide to the tungsten electrode is to increase the life and the current carrying capacity of the tungsten electrode. In tungsten electrode, 0.6% thorium oxide is added to increase the current carrying capacity and life of the tungsten electrode. If more than 0.6% thorium oxide is added, it affects the current carrying capacity and life of the tungsten electrode.

Tungsten electrode- Tungsten electrode is used in TIG (Tungsten inert gas) welding as a welding electrode. Tungsten electrode is the desired electrode for TIG (Tungsten inert gas) welding, because the tungsten electrode has a high melting point, and it is a non-consumable electrode. The tungsten electrode can easily be alloyed with different types of metals
