Oxyacetylene Gas Welding Review

Oxyacetylene Gas Welding uses a fuel gas such as acetylene or hydrogen is mixed inside a welding torch with oxygen to produce a flame with a temperature of around 6,300 F . This flame is used to melt the materials to be welded. A filler rod is melted into the puddle of molten metal to reinforce the weld. When highly-reactive metals such as aluminum are gas welded, they must be covered with flux to exclude oxygen from the molten metal and keep oxides from forming which would decrease the strength of the weld. (An illustration of a carburizing flame, a neutral flame, and an oxidizing flame is shown below.)
