Presentation Transcript

  1. PLUMBING TOOLS

  2. PLUMBING TOOLS Blow torches are used to heat metal during soldering. Gas can be supplied via a portable, reusable gas bottle.

  3. PLUMBING TOOLS Above: portable blow torch with disposable gas cylinder.

  4. PLUMBING TOOLS Flux is applied to prevent oxidisation of the surfaces of connectors.

  5. PLUMBING TOOLS Pipe work is heated using a blow lamp. Solder is melted to a liquid with the blow lamp, and is used to weld connectors and pipes together. Once cooled, the solder returns to a solid, forming a watertight seal.

  6. PLUMBING TOOLS Left: oxy-acetylene bottles. One bottle contains oxygen, the other contains acetylene, which is a fuel source. The gasses inside the cylinders are compressed and are in liquid form: once the gasses leave the cylinder, they become gas and are mixed to form a flammable mixture.

  7. PLUMBING TOOLS THE FIRE TRIANGLE HEAT FUEL OXYGEN In order for anything to burn, 3 elements, as above, need to be in place. Oxy-acetylene welding & burning provides these elements.

  8. Top left: oxy-acetylene torch just after ignition: bottom left: torch at full temperature. Below: welding lead using oxy-acetylene torch. PLUMBING TOOLS

  9. PLUMBING TOOLS Pipes are bent to shape using pipe bending tools. The series of images shown next show pipe being bent.
