A Cut Above the Rest

Acetylene

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 5700° F!

Not only is oxy acetylene 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:

  • Cutting
  • Welding
  • Brazing
  • Soldering

Materials Suitable for Oxy Acetylene Welding:

  • Mild Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless steel
  • Copper
  • Brass

Benefits of the Oxy Acetylene 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

Acetylene Safety

Pressure and Temperature

Outside temperature can effect 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:
