Why use Oxyacetylene Welding?

  • Oxyacetylene welding is ideally suited for repair welding and for welding thin sheets, tubes and small diameter pipes
  • Welder can exercise precise control over heat input and temperature, independent of the addition of filler metal
  • Minimal dilution with the base material makes OFW suitable for surfacing applications
  • Use of a reducing flame can assist in carburization of the surface to be welded
