What is backfire? Backfire is the momentary retrogression of the flame into the torch that is usually signaled by a popping sound. The flame may either extinguish or re-ignite at the end of the tip. Sustained backfire (flashback) is the retrogression of flame into the torch with continued burning inside the torch. This event can […]
Rivet Washing Tips Rivet washing tips use a low-velocity cutting oxygen stream to blow rivets through a plate without damaging it. Burn the rivet heads off by placing the tip perpendicular to the rivet and not by trying to cut the rivet head off from the side as you will likely score and damage the […]
Advantages of Oxy-fuel Gas Cutting The advantages of oxy-fuel gas cutting include: Equipment is very portable and can be used in the field. Cutting direction can be changed rapidly on a small radius during operation. Large plates can be cut rapidly in place by moving the torch rather than the plate. Equipment costs are lower […]
Beveling Beveling allows a full-penetration weld (if required). It gives the torch tip access to deep-lying base metal, prepares a well-defined, uniform container for molten metal and ensures quality welds. Bevel angles and root openings are essential for adequate weld penetration in thick plates or pipes. The joint design must specify all relevant dimensions and […]
