GAS WELDING AND CUTTING KITS
Gas welding is one of the oldest welding processes, dating back to 1903. With that said, gas welding is arguably the most versatile even by todays standards. Oxygen and fuel are mixed together to weld or cut metals. By using pure oxygen rather than air, the flames temperature can reach very high temperatures to allow localized melting of the work piece material. For example, an Oxy/Propane flame burns at about 2,253 °C, whilst an Oxy/Acetylene flame burns at 3,500 °C.
With the right gas welding equipment, it is possible to weld, braze, solder or heat. When using gas equipment to weld, a welding torch is used. The torch produces localised heat between the two metals being welded together, causing the metals to melt and share a molten pool of metal. This molten weld pool is generally supplied with a filler material of the correct type for the two metals being joined.
In oxy-fuel cutting, the torch is used to heat the metal to its kindling temperature. A stream of oxygen is then trained on the metal, burning it into a metal oxide that flows out of the kerf as slag.
TBWS are able to supply all parts and spares for oxy fuel gas welding and cutting torches. Our website shows a fraction of the items we are able to supply. Please get in touch if you cannot see what you require.
