Propane (C3H8) is a colorless, flammable, liquefied gas with a distinct odor. The flame temperature of the oxy-propane flame is lower when compared with the acetylene and FG-2™. The primary flame releases less BTU when compared with FG-2™ or acetylene, which increases preheat time. Propane is commonly used by scrap yards for cutting of carbon steel where the cut quality is less critical. Where cut quality is not a concern, propane may be a cost-effective fuel gas. Grade T supply hose is necessary when cutting with propane.
