Our Acetylene Generator is a “Continuous Flow” type. When the carbide contents of the hopper are exhausted, (the other hopper automatically goes into operation, carrying the load) the empty hopper can be refilled during the time the gas in the generator is being used. In this way continuous service is maintained conveniently and safely. No shutdown operations at recharging period means that you save both labour and time. The Generator may be started or stopped as and when required.
Carbide lime is a high quality hydrated lime slurry produced as a by-product of the generation of acetylene gas
It is produced as a 10% solids slurry and is stored in tanks, where the excess water is decanted to increase the solids content to the 30-40% range for distribution in 5000 gallon tank trucks.
Many methods to stop flashbacks have been devised. Broadly the Interruption Methods can classify the Flashback Arrestors into two types :
“Active” methods require maintenance of certain parameters, such as liquid level or gas velocity. “Passive” methods require only routine inspection and typically have no moving parts or instrument requirements.
reasons that may cause a flash back. Hot refractory causes a flash back If the refractory lining a burner or furnace is hot enough to bring the hydrocarbon/air mixture to the auto ignition temperature, rapid combustion will start. Heat transfer… Read More »Gas Flash Back & its causes
The flashback arrestor should be placed at the closest point to the flame, if due to unavoidable circumstances the Arrestor can not be places close to the cutting nozzle or the flame then it should be placed of the main pipe line, and also on the fuel gas bank, vessel, cylinder.
While many people may logically conclude that acetylene is stored in standard high-pressure cylinders which are hollow in construction and gas storage use, this point is not true. Acetylene cylinders are a separate, dedicated, and special type of cylinder that… Read More »Handling and Storing of Acetylene cylinders
When it comes to compressed gas products, many business owners and managers prefer buying new ones. Many times, this is due to a gap in their understanding of the benefits of the rebuilding process or even that rebuilt units are available. What are these benefits? What does a compressor rebuilding involve? This post discusses how a rebuilt acetylene gas compressor can be an asset to a business.
This code is intended to provide safety requirements for design in the construction of Acetylene pipelines having working pressure rating above 2.5 kg/cm²g and less than 26 kg/cm²g and filling and discharge manifolds for Acetylene service as well as Acetylene Compressors & High-Pressure Driers.
Acetylene is a combustible gas with a distinctive odor. It is used as a raw material for the production of several organic chemicals, as well as a fuel component in metal cutting, and oxy-acetylene welding. Today, acetylene is also used… Read More »CALCIUM CARBIDE FOR ACETYLENE PRODUCTION
As the name suggests, these tools provide protection against fire and explosions in those environments, where flammable chemicals, fuels, materials, residues or gasses may be present. Many times, these tools are also referred to as “spark-reduced”, “spark-proof”, and “spark-resistant”. benefits… Read More »Here’s why you should not use sparking items near your acetylene plant
