​Acetylene Gas Supplier

For oxy-fuel cutting, heat treating and torch brazing applications

Acetylene is a flammable gas produced by reacting calcium carbide with water or as a secondary product from ethylene production. Acetylene is dissolved in a solvent in specially designed cylinders filled with a porous mass. Since the gas is dissolved into the mass, it is sometimes called 'dissolved acetylene'.

The exceptionally high flame temperature of acetylene (3100°C) makes it ideal for oxy-acetylene cutting, heat treating and torch brazing. It can also be used in analytical laboratories for organic synthesis and as a flame gas in analytical techniques such as Atomic Absorption (AA) Spectroscopy. Sometimes it is used for chemically-induced flower production.

Air Products offers acetylene gas in a variety of purities and in various modes of supply around the world ranging from cylinders to manifolded packs.

Transporting Cylinders? Drive Safely and Arrive Safely

There are some basic safety rules to follow when transporting cylinders :

  • No smoking
  • Check that cylinder valves are properly closed and that valve caps are fitted
  • Ventilate your vehicle
  • Disconnect regulators, hoses and torches, etc.
  • Secure cylinders properly to prevent them from moving
  • Go directly to your destination
  • Do not leave cylinders inside the boot or in an unventilated place
  • Immediately unload at destination or if stopping for a longer time and store in a ventilated place
