Acetylene can be used as fuel gas. Of all the fuel gases, Acetylene produces the hottest flame (3200°C) when burned with Oxygen. It provides high productivity, low Oxygen consumption and safe use within confined spaces.
The high level reactivity property of Acetylene makes it a very useful fuel gas for, Cutting, Welding, Heat treatment, Coating, flame spraying, raw material for the production of various organic chemicals.
Acetylene compounds are used in certain dry-cell batteries, and Acetylenic alcohols, which are used in vitamins synthesis, general fabrication and Ship building, Laboratories and Research, Glass, Iron and Steel and Non-ferrous metals.
