Oxy-fuel cutting; the basics explained HGG 3D Profiling

Oxy-fuel cutting is used for the cutting of mild steel. Only metals whose oxides have a lower melting point than the base metal itself can be cut with this process. Otherwise as soon as the metal oxidises it terminates the oxidation by forming a protective crust. Only mild steel and some low alloys meet the above conditions.

Cutting Mild-Carbon Steel tpub

Slightly carburizing flames are ideal for cutting steels and other ferrous metals that produce a large amount of slag. Although a neutral flame is best for most cutting, a slightly carburizing flame is ideal for producing a lot of heat down inside the kerf.

Choosing Between Plasma Cutting and Oxy-fuel Systems

Mar 19, 2021 With oxy-fuel cutting, an oxygen/fuel gas flame preheats the steel to its ignition temperature. A high-powered oxygen jet is then directed at the metal, creating a chemical reaction between the oxygen and the metal to form iron oxide, also known as slag.

Flame Cutting vs Plasma Cutting: Which System Should I Use

So essentially, the thickness of mild steel you can cut is equal to the amount you can heat up and blast with a stream of pressurized oxygen. With larger units, this can get pretty deep you can cut steel well over a foot thick. It just takes a while. How a Plasma Cutter Works

Aug 06, 2020 Push the cutting valve handle down slowly to release the oxygen jet. This will ignite the molten steel. If a violent reaction instantly starts, the steel has ignited, and you can gradually increase pressure until the jet is cutting completely through the metal. If no reaction occurs, the metal is not hot enough to ignite.

Kinetics of oxyfuel gas cutting of steels

A stream of oxygen then trained on the metal combines with the metal which then flows out as an oxide slag to create the kerf (Union Carbide Corp, 1975; DeGarmo et al., 1999; AWS, 1997). The cut quality depends on the torch tip size, type, and distance from the metal (AWS, 1997), the oxygen and preheat gas flow rates, and the cutting speed.

Oxy-fuel welding and cutting Wikipedia

Oxy-fuel welding (commonly called oxyacetylene welding, oxy welding, or gas welding in the United States) and oxy-fuel cutting are processes that use fuel gases (or liquid fuels such as gasoline) and oxygen to weld or cut metals. French engineers Edmond Fouché and Charles Picard became the first to develop oxygen-acetylene welding in 1903.Pure oxygen, instead of air, is used to increase the

Flame Cutting (Oxy Fuel Cutting) A Method to Cut Thick Steel

Flame cutting (also known as oxy fuel cutting), it is to use the heat burned from oxy fuel gas, to cut steel materials or the hard metals to the panels or profiles required. It can cut steel thickness from 1 mm to 1200 mm. And in most cases it used to cut steel plate thickness more than 20 mm, since oxy fuel cutting usually brings big tolerance.
