Special product for oxyfuel cutting proce

The right solution for your oxyfuel thermal cutting.

The oxyfuel thermal cutting technology is the oldest and best known, but still in continuous development.
This technology is fundamental for processing of construction steels. 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 products specific for this technology with the aim of making the process even more advantageous to 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 cut design to be carried out, you can choose the right combustible gas. For example, when it must be performed a short and complex cut, the combustible gas that best yields is acetylene, as it  allows a greater break through speed and lower oxygen consumption.

When, on the other hand, cuts must be long, it's better to use cheaper gases even if the break through time is longer, but diluted in the length of the cut.

Nippon Gases has in its portfolio special products for the oxyfuel cutting technology.
