Oxyacetylene Welding (OAW). The oxyacetylene welding process uses a combination of oxygen and acetylene gas to provide a high temperature flame. Oxyacetylene Welding (OAW). OAW is a manual process in which the welder must personally control the the torch movement and filler rod application

The oxyacetylene welding process uses a combination of oxygen and acetylene gas to provide a high temperature flame.
Cylinders are regularly chemically cleaned and annealed to relieve “jobsite” stresses created by handling .Oxygen Cylinders
The cylinder valve should always be handled carefullyOxygen Cylinders
Most regulators have a gauge for cylinder pressure and working pressure.Pressure Regulators for Cylinders
Regulators maintain a constant torch pressure although cylinder pressure may vary
Regulator diaphragms are made of stainless steelPressure Regulators for Cylinders
As pressure in the semicircular end increases it causes the free end of the tube to move outward.
This movement is transmitted through to a curved rack which engages a pinion gear on the pointer shaft ultimately showing pressure.Pressure Regulators Gauges Using a “Bourdon” movement
This will allow the cylinder to be closed quickly in case of fire.
Cylinder valve wrenches should be left in place on cylinders that do not have a hand wheel.Acetylene Valves
attachment in place of the welding head shown. Welding torches of this general design are by far the most widely used. They will handle any oxyacetylene welding job, can be fitted with multiflame (Rosebud) heads for heating applications, and accommodate cutting attachments that will cut steel 6 in. thick.
