Gas welding is a very popular method of joining various metals. Used in repair or renovation works. This welding is called oxy-acetylene welding and has been in use for a long time. There are three welding methods gas, i.e. right, left, up. The gas welding station consists of an oxygen hose, cylinder reducers, oxygen-acetylene torch, gas cylinder, and a set of parts for the torch.
Gas welding begins with a very thorough cleaning of the material of all impurities, e.g. grease. The tightness of hoses and couplings is also very important. The technological indications are as follows: we weld low-carbon and low-alloy steels. We avoid welding of high-alloy steels, copper or aluminum. Upward gas welding has many advantages:
- low gas consumption
- easy to make the weld
- high welding performance
The most common type of flame is the normal (reducing) flame. It enables the welding of copper, carbon steel and cast iron. There are two more types of flame, i.e. carburizing and oxidizing.
It is definitely worth becoming a gas welder. Such a person will easily find a job, and the profession is profitable.
