Oxygen And Acetylene Regulators

The gases stored in the gas cylinders used for oxy-acetylene welding are originally at very high pressure, and cannot be directly used as such. Here, the oxygen and acetylene regulators play an important role in reducing this pressure to a working pressure. These regulators enable maintaining a constant desired pressure at the point of delivery, … Read more

Oxyacetylene Regulators Malfunctions and Corrections

The leakage of gas between the regulator seat and the nozzle is the principal problem encountered with oxyacetylene regulators. It is indicated by a gradual increase in pressure on the working pressure gauge when the adjusting screw is fully released or is in position after adjustment. This defect, called “creeping regulator”, is caused by bad … Read more
