Hopefully this gives some insights into some of the differences between the torches. The two main things to consider are your budget and the size flame you need for your designs. If you are constantly soldering larger cuffs for example, you will probably like an acetylene tank. If you are working on rings and pendants and working within a budget then a butane torch could be a perfect solution for you! Set ups with oxygen are wonderful and versatile as well. No matter what torch you purchase, you should feel confident when working with it. I often recommend if you can, visit a local plumbing supply and ask someone to show you how to use your regulators and check for leaks so that you feel empowered. Many jewelers learn on a particular gas system, whether it be at school, in a workshop or from a mentor and then go on to use that system because they are comfortable with it. If you want to read more about torches check out this article from Kelly of MERITMADE.
The hottest most-versatile gas, acetylene, is very easy to use for all purposes. Pre-heat time for cutting and gouging is relatively short because the flame temperature is between 5,600 and 5,800 F. However, this gas is the most expensive gas available and is not the most efficient for heating large areas.
Most of our standard cutting and welding tips are made from tellurium copper with a precision-swaged calibrated orifice. We also offer a wide range of oxygen acetylene torches from handheld to automated so you can upgrade everything all at once.
Based on what I just paid for a 80 CF tank for my new MIG welder. Figure at least $400 or more for the 2 tanks.Always get the next larger tank size for oxygen over the acetylene tank size. You use oxygen faster then acetylene if you do a lot of cutting.
When I lost my job in a machine shop, my first thought was how to replace the TIG and mill and high amperage welders that I had 24/7 access to and I decided I was going to set up an oxy acetylene rig and go old school. Flame cut, weld and braze everything like I was a craftsman living in the 50's. I dug my regulator set, torch and hoses and went down to the welding supply shop and was informed that they would no longer supply acetylene to anyone who transported it in a closed vehicle. Both local supply houses used to just make you sign a waiver but after a local explosion involving a van they put a stop to that. I don't own a pickup and have no desire to and coupled with the cost of the tanks being almost as much as an entry level TIG machine I gave up on the idea.
Yeah buying an old tank from someone who got it who knows where can be a problem. For many years I had access to a Ox/Acel torch and tanks thanks to my uncle who worked for a contractor and would drop off a full tank of either Ox. or Acel. whenever the ones we had were empty. When my uncle retired getting the tanks refilled or exchanged was a problem. My nephew who had the torch setup finally got rid of the old tanks and purchased a pair that he could get refilled. This is why I suggested that one sets up an account at what ever supplier one uses. Their more willing to work with you if they know who you are. I was able to just switch suppliers and exchange one tank for another after I did so.
Acetylene is a highly flammable colourless gas of distinct odour. The high solubility of acetylene in acetone (300:1 by volume at 1100 kPa) enables it to be supplied dissolved in acetone. Acetylene cylinders are filled with porous material that carries the acetone.
Acetylene or ethyn is a chemical inorganic compound between carbon and hydrogen. Acetylene was discovered in the 19th century by Edmund Davy and rediscovered by Marcelin Bertholot. Acetylene gas is a highly reactive and explosive gas that is used in combustion processes where a high temperature is required.
Cutting processes: acetylene is mainly used in metal processing (scrap processing, shipbuilding) for cutting. Due to the high temperature, the metal can be cut quickly Autogenous welding: the combustion of acetylene with oxygen produces a very hot acetylene flame with which the metal is melted. It is also used to eliminate distortions from a metal structure. Niche applications: acetylene soot is used as a lubricant, for example.
There are gas cylinders in different sizes and with different pressures. Depending on the type of gas in the bottle, the \"shoulder\" of the bottle has a different color, which is standardized under the European standard EN 1089-3. In the case of acetylene, this is maroon. An overview of the different colors of the gas bottles can be found here.
The bottles must not be filled with pure acetylene gas due to the risk of explosion. That is why the acetylene gas bottle is completely filled with a porous mass in which an organic solvent (DMF or acetone) is dissolved. The available pressure at the outlet of the bottle depends on the speed at which the acetylene can withdraw from the solvent. Ensure that a non-return valve is always attached to the line to the acetylene bottle. If the flame speed of the acetylene exceeds the gas speed, the flame in the bottle may blow back and cause the bottle to explode. Therefore, first read the safety instructions!
For large acetylene consumers, acetylene is also available in bundles (linked systems of 8-20 bottles). For very large customers, the gas bottle bundles are mounted on a trailer. Because of the risks of acetylene, we offer alternative gases, depending on the needs of our customers. Call our specialists for more information.
You can buy acetylene gas at one of our distribution points in your country. Most customers order our cylinders online or by telephone. Depending on the distribution point, you can collect the bottles or have them delivered to your home. Call us for more information about the delivery options.
Oxygen is also used to amplify heat during gas welding and for cutting metals in a process called oxy-cutting. Welders prefer mixing oxygen with acetylene to create the highest temperature ideal for welding thick metals such as steel.
Cameron grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a once-proud steel town on the Lehigh River, where he got a taste of TIG welding in his high school shop class. He holds certificates for Certified WeldingEducator (CWE) and Certified Resistance Welding Technician (CRWT) from the American Welding Institute. His interests include scuba diving, sculpture, and kayaking.
The Aero Duplex Soldering Iron Torch provides continuous heat for long seams, it has a shield to keep wind from blowing out the flame and the single gas valve swivels to prevent kinks in the supply line. This acetylene heated Soldering Torch heats up in one minute from a cold start and stays hot throughout the lightest or heaviest soldering jobs.
MAPP gas was a trademarked name, belonging to The Linde Group, a division of the former global chemical giant Union Carbide, for a fuel gas based on a stabilized mixture of methylacetylene (propyne), propadiene and propane. The name comes from the original chemical composition, methylacetylene-propadiene propane. \"MAPP gas\" is also widely used as a generic name for UN 1060 stabilised methylacetylene-propadiene (unstabilised methylacetylene-propadiene is known as MAPD).
MAPP gas is widely regarded as a safer and easier-to-use substitute for acetylene. In early 2008, true MAPP gas production ended in North America when production was discontinued at the only remaining plant in North America that still manufactured it. However, many current products labeled \"MAPP\" are, in fact, MAPP substitutes. These versions contain mostly propylene with some propane, dimethyl ether is included as a 3rd ingredient in some versions.
Genuine MAPP gas can be used in combination with oxygen for heating, soldering, brazing and even welding because of its high flame temperature of 2925 C (5300 F) in oxygen. Although acetylene has a higher flame temperature (3160 C, 5720 F), MAPP has the advantage that it requires neither dilution nor special container fillers during transport, allowing a greater volume of fuel gas to be transported at the same given weight, and it is much safer in use.
MAPP/oxygen was advantageously used in underwater cutting, which requires high gas pressures (under such pressures acetylene can decompose explosively, making it dangerous to use). However, underwater oxy/fuel gas cutting of any kind has been largely replaced by exothermic cutting because it cuts more quickly and safely. 59ce067264
