Oxygen - Acetylene

Oxygen & Acetylene - Cutting & Heating

Oxygen and acetylene is the prefered combination for work requiring a cleaner and faster cut.  In addition it also has a shorter preheat time.  Where speed quality of cut are of the essence acetylene is superior.  However, although acetylene requires lower oxygen consumption than the alternative of propane, high production costs mean it is less viable for volume cutting - eg for large scale metal recycling.

Acetylene also has a versatility advantage over propane, as it is the only readily available fuel gas that can be used for welding carbon steels. Click here for gas welding
