DetailsAcetylene (C2H2) Is A Colorless Gas Used In A Variety Of Industrial Applications. Its Unique Value Is Due To An Ability To Achieve The Highest Temperature (As High As 3200° Celsius) Of Any Fuel Gas On Combustion with Oxygen, Releasing More Than 1400 BTUs Per Cubic Foot. Hvac Technicians Use Manual Torches, Either Oxy-Acetylene or Air-Acetylene, For Brazing. Oxy-Acetylene Requires A Cylinder Of Compressed Acetylene Gas As Well As A Cylinder Of Compressed High-Purity Oxygen. These Gases Combine For An Intense Flame Temperature. An Air-Acetylene System Requires Only A Single Acetylene Tank, Taking Oxygen From The Atmosphere. Since Air Contains Only About 21% Oxygen, It Was Difficult For Older Air/Acetylene Torches To Reach A Temperature Suitable For Brazing, So These Torches Were Used Mainly For Low-Temperature Soldering. With The Development Of Swirl Combustion Technology, Air/Acetylene Systems Came Into Use For Brazing. Oxy-Acetylene Welding Is A Cost-Effective Alternative In Remote Locations That Lack Reliable Electrical Supply, and Is The Only Fuel Gas That Creates A Flame Hot Enough To Weld Steel. It Is Also Used To Apply Wires or Powder To Metals and Ceramics, and Non-Stick Coatings To Metal Castings. It Is The First Choice Of Fuel Gases, Offering Low Oxygen Consumption and Safe Use Within A Confined Space. In Commercial Supplies, Acetylene Exhibits A Characteristic Odor, Often Described As Garlicky. Some Common Industrial Applications For Acetylene Include: *Welding *Shipbuilding *Research Laboratories *Glass Manufacturing.
