Oxy-Acetylene High Pressure System

Oxyacetylene welding is a fusion-welding process. The coalescence of metals is produced by an oxygen-acetylene flame; Extreme heat is concentrated on the edges or on the edge and surface of the piece of metal being joined until the molten metal flows together. The type of joint design determines whether a filler metal should be used to complete the weldment or not. Filler metal is added by inserting it into the molten puddle of the base metals. The puddle then solidifies, after cooling making the weld bead. The extremely high heat depends on the mixture of two types of gaseous substances,…
