Gas Cylinder to Torch Handle
Cutting & Gouging
Brazing & Welding
Handy Tip: Oxy brazing can be done with both Oxy/Acetylene and Oxy/LPG. Oxy welding (eg welding steel together using steel filler wire), however, is only possible with Oxy/Acetylene.
Handy Tip: Heating with Oxy/Acetylene become unsafe when drawing large flows from the acetylene cylinder (eg: during heavy heating). For this reason, Oxy/Acetylene heating tips are not available in large / very large sizes, as indicated above. Oxy/LPG does not have the same restriction & Oxy/LPG heating tips are available in larger sizes for heavy heating applications. Overall, Oxy/LPG is safer and less costly than Oxy/Acetylene.
