Portable Acetylene Generator

H-Type Acetylene Generator

Portable acetylene generator works on the water to carbide principle of generating acetylene gas. Our Portable Acetylene generators follow international safety standards.

The unit consists of a Generator Tank which contains two gas producing chambers. Each containing a carbide tray.

The Acetylene gas generated by the chemical reaction between Calcium Carbide and Water. Water passes upwards through a pipe fitted with a nonreturn ball valve into the Generator Tank. Through a filter and a shut-off valve and a non-return valve gas enters the bottom of the flash-back arrestor. From here the gas further passes through the Pressure-Regulator to the Gas outlet cock to which the welding hose is connected.
