Gas Cutting- Oxyacetylene

Oxyacetylene gas welding cutting is commonly used to cut mild steel. A mixture of oxygen and acetylene, burns as an intense/focussed flame, at approximately 3,500 deg.C. When the flame comes in contact with steel, it melts the surface allowing the metal to be cut. Oxyacetylene can also be used for brazing, bronze welding, forging/shaping metal and welding. We use it to create beveled edges on weld test plates as well as cutting longer lengths of steel into more manageable sizes
