Oxygen for Metalfabrication Industry

The comburent gas par excellence.

Not just Oxyfuel technology

The main characteristic of oxygen is that it is a comburent. Used for the thermal cutting (oxyfuel, plasma and laser) of carbon steel, precisely because it has the ability to react with the carbon contained in the steel generating heat that continues to feed the process.

Oxygen it is used in small percentages mixed with Argon to obtain a good aesthetic welding of carbon steel or some high alloy steels.

Acetylene for Metalfabrication Industry
Acetylene is the synthetic fuel gas which, combined with oxygen, generates a flame at very high temperature and is the most commonly used fuel gas in braze-welding and oxy-fuel technologies. Its particular instability is resolved by storing it in special cylinders that contain a porous mass which is first saturated with a solvent that Can be Acetone or DMF (Dimethyl Formalamide) which serve to dissolve the Acetylene making it so stable and safe both during transport and in phases of use.
