A CUT ABOVE THE REST
Perfect for Acetylene Torches
Acetylene is a highly flammable, colorless gas and the most common fuel gas used with cutting torches and various types of welding techniques. Acetylene creates a neutral flame that can reach over 5,700 F!
Not only is oxyacetylene gas welding effective in soldering filler rods to base metals, it can be used to melt iron and steel. Take advantage of acetylene’s incredible flame temperature and apply it to all your metal fabrication needs.
Some of acetylene’s uses include:
Materials Suitable for Oxy Acetylene Welding:
- Mild Steel
- Stainless steel
Benefits of the oxyacetylene welding process include:
- Ability to switch quickly to a cutting process, by changing the welding tip to a cutting tip
- Gas mixture attains a high temperature
- Regulators to control gas flow and reduce pressure on both oxygen and acetylene tanks
- Ability to regulate temperature by adjusting the gas flow
Pressure and Temperature
Outside temperature can affect the “full” pressure inside your cylinder, especially during extreme heat or cold. Please refer to the chart below for guidance:
Acetylene Pressure – Temperature – Oxygen Pressure:
(Pressures shown apply to full cylinders)
- 355 – 100 -2380
- 320 – 90 – 2320
- 285 – 80 – 2260
- 250 – 70 – 2200
- 222 – 60 – 2140
- 194 – 50 – 2080
- 170 – 40 – 2020
- 146 – 30 – 1960
- 125 – 20 – 1900
- 106 – 10 – 1840
- 88 – 0 – 1780
