Special product for oxyfuel cuttingprocess.

The right solution foryour oxyfuel thermalcutting.

The oxyfuel thermal cutting technology is the oldest and best known, but still in continuous development. This technology is fundamental for processing of constructionsteels. Plasma and laser technologies are suitable for medium thin thicknesses, but oxyfuel technology remains the queen for cutting thick sheets.

Nippon Gases has developed some productsspecific for this technology with the aim ofmaking the process even more advantageousto increase productivity and cutting quality.
What is the most important gas in the oxyfuel cutting process?


Without a doubt, the answer to this question is oxygen.


It supports the flame in the preheating phase, bringing carbon steel to incandescence, and thus fueling an exothermic reaction between the carbon contained in the steel and oxygen. However, fuel gas also has a fundamental function in the type of work and process economy.

Based on the type of cutting design to be performed, you can choose the right flammable gas. When, for example. to make a short and complex cut, acetylene is the combustible gas that provides the best yield, as it allows for a faster permeation rate and a lower oxygen consumption.
On the other hand, it is better to use cheaper gases, even if the penetration time is longer, but diluted in the cut length when the cuts are to be long.
In its product portfolio, Nippon Gases has special products for Oxyfuel cutting technology.
