Products/ Industrial/ Acetylene


Because we do it right

Acetylene is a hydrocarbon and the simplest alkyne, with its chemical formula as C₂H₂
It is a colorless, combustible gas with a distinctive odor
For safe and effective storage as well as proper functioning within cylinders, Acetylene gas is mixed in liquid Acetone
Acetone in Acetylene cylinders helps stabilize the gas making it non-reactive within the cylinder
Acetylene cylinder consists of a steel shell containing a porous mass as a safety feature
Acetylene gas dissolved in Acetone is absorbed by the porous mass and this porous mass slows down any decomposition of the gas, hence, preventing any hazardous/dangerous incidents
This gas should not be handled until all safety measures have been met
Cylinders should not be exposed to heat and are flammable even in the absence of air. Request quotation
