Oxygen for cutting and welding materials
Oxygen can be used in many different processes for cutting and joining materials. Autogenous flame cutting and laser beam flame cutting are two methods for cutting metals. Oxygen is used as a fuel gas in both methods. The metal to be separated is heated to the ignition temperature. At this temperature, the metal forms a combustible liquid which continues to burn on its own if oxygen is added. The heat ensures that the process continues autogenously - even without an ignition source. By adding oxygen as a blowing gas with a high purity, a considerably higher cutting speed can be achieved than with fusion cutting, for example. The resulting iron oxide is also blown out with an oxygen jet.
Gas fusion welding is a joining process used for permanent joining of workpieces. Here, too, oxygen is used as a fuel gas to melt and join the workpieces at the joints.
With our oxygen generators, we supply high quality solutions for the stationary and mobile production of oxygen for different applications, including for low volume requirements.
