The right flame for oxyfuel cutting

Does your preheating take longer than specified in the cutting table?
Is the cutting quality bad?

One reason may be the incorrect setting of the flame.
A cutting flame should have the correct mixture between heating oxygen and heating gas.
With propane, it is approx. 1 part propane and 4 parts oxygen. For acetylene, it is about 1:1.
In the attached video, you can see examples of a heating flame.
For the correct adjustment often years of experience is necessary.

Alternatively, you use APC, our fully automatic Oxy-Fuel Process Control System.
