Proven Computational Fluid Dynamics Modeling Services
Acetylene is the primary fuel for oxy-fuel welding and is the fuel of choice for repair work and general cutting and welding, Acetylene produces the hottest and most concentrated primary flame of all industrial fuel gases.
Argon is used in many applications in glass manufacturing. It is colorless, non-reactive, non-flammable and has low thermal conductivity.
Helium is used to protect the glass surface in fiber-optic glass production and to improve refining within the bubbling process during glass manufacturing.
Hydrogen is used in glass manufacturing for atmosphere control, cutting and polishing, heat treating, melting, and softening.
Nitrogen is used in glass manufacturing for atmosphere control and flat glass delamination.
Oxygen is used in glass manufacturing applications like cutting/polishing, heat treating, melting/softening, bubbling, and oxygen-enhanced combustion.
