​Oxy-Fuel Cutting

Cutting, heating and brazing fuel gases

Many fuel gases are available including acetylene, ethylene, hydrogen, methane, propane, propylene and mixtures. Each gas has different characteristics and benefits. The most common ones are:

  • Acetylene which is lighter than air. It is colourless and odourless in its pure state, however, commercial acetylene has a slightly garlic-like odour. It is also selected due to its versatility as it suitable for welding as well as cutting.
  • Apachi® cutting gas; propylene liquid petroleum gas which is exclusively available from Air Products. It is heavier than air.
  • Propane, a liquid petroleum gas (lpg), which is heavier than air and, although not as hot as acetylene or Apachi® gas, is selected due to its versatility.
