Acetylene (C2H2) is a gaseous hydrocarbon, colorless, unstable, highly combustible and with strong garlic odor. It is not an air gas and it produces a very hot flame (over 3000Â°C or 5400Â°C) when combined with oxygen.
SOC Supplies Dissolved Acetylene:
- Compressed in cylinder capacities 12cft to 200cft
- Nitrogen Liquid in duracylinders & cryogenic tanks
Acetylene (C2H2) is a synthesis gas generally produced from the reaction of calcium carbide with water.
Uses Of Dissolved Acetylene
Acetylene is a combustible gas used mainly in the automatic lubrification for glass bottle production moulding. It is the fuel gas in Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS). Acetylene is the most effective and versatile fuel gas, enabling manual applications such as welding, brazing, cutting, straightening or any other localized heating process.
