Oxy-fuel torch preheat and its proper adjustment

June 23, 2013

Flame Cutting/Oxygen Burning requires some source of intense heat to get the plate hot enough to be cut/burned. This source of heat is referred to as the “preheat flame”. The whole plate does not need to be heated, not even the bottom, just that portion slightly ahead of the cutting reaction. There are some plate materials that must be “preheated” before cutting to keep them from cracking during cutting. Typically materials with Carbon Levels above .25% fall in this category. This is NOT the “preheat” we are discussing. Some of these materials require “preheating” up to 600 °F. There are also some materials that require “preheating” to achieve a quality cut.

What is Flame Cutting?

June 2, 2013

The process often called Flame Cutting is known by many names, such as Oxy Acetylene Cutting, Oxy Fuel Gas Cutting, Oxygen Burning, Steel Burning and other terms too numerous to mention. The process is now about 111-112 years old as it was patented in 1901 by Thomas Fletcher. One of the first commercial applications was what the British referred to as “an unauthorized bank entry”, or a “safe cracking”.
