LP Acetylene Cylinders

LP Acetylene Cylinders

Acetylene cylinders contain acetylene gas, dissolved in acetone, that is absorbed onto a calcium silicate porous mass within the cylinder. The porous mass is designed to inhibit decomposition, which, when left to itself, could create an extremely hazardous and volatile condition. Acetylene cylinders should always be stored in an upright position to avoid any leaks or unwanted reactions.

Acetylene cylinders are used with oxygen to produce and intense flame at temperatures up to 6,300°F and are used for welding, cutting, soldering and other metal preparations. Their portability makes it a great choice for on-site jobs and there is no electricity needed to operate. All acetylene cylinders are TC and DOT approved [except 40 CF (B-Big Flange) – which is DOTonly].
