Oxyacetylene welding, usually referred to as gas welding or oxyfuel gas welding (OFW), is a versatile process that depends on the combustion of oxygen and acetylene. The chemical combination of the oxyacetylene flame can be adjusted by converting the ratio of the volume of oxygen to acetylene. This creates three distinctive flame settings to be available for use: neutral, oxidizing, and carburizing.
Oxyfuel welding is generally carried out using the neutral flame setting which has equal amounts of oxygen and acetylene. The oxidizing flame is acquired by increasing just the oxygen flow rate while the carburizing flame is obtained by increasing acetylene flow in correlation to oxygen flow. Steel melts at temperatures above 2,732oF, so the combination of oxygen and acetylene is used because it is the only gas blend with enough heat to weld steel. However, other gases such as propane, hydrogen and coal gas can be used for joining lower melting point, non-ferrous metals, as well as for brazing and silver soldering.
