3D PROCESS CHART
Acetylene is generated as a result of the chemical reaction between the calcium carbide and water. The by-product calcium hydroxide is discharged automatically from the generator. Acetylene gas burns along with oxygen as a cutting & welding torch and it provides the highest temperature of any known oxygen gas mixture.
The entire operation is perfectly synchronised to give maximum efficiency and simplicity in operation. Any failure, whether it is of power supply, water, instruments air, is signalled visually and also audibly when an alarm bell rings to alert the operator.
Only flame proof lights and electrical fittings according to IS2148-68 (Group II) or BSS-229 may be used in an acetylene plant building. Acetylene cylinders must be of specification IS: 7312: 1974 or ICC:8.
