Acetylene (C2H2) is a gaseous hydrocarbon, colorless, unstable, highly combustible and with strong garlic odor. It is not an air gas and it produces a very hot flame (over 3000°C or 5400°C) when combined with oxygen.

Supply Options

SOC Supplies Dissolved Acetylene:

  1. Compressed in cylinder capacities 12cft to 200cft
  2. 40L-10L-5L-2L
  3. Nitrogen Liquid in duracylinders & cryogenic tanks


Manufacturing Method

Acetylene (C2H2) is a synthesis gas generally produced from the reaction of calcium carbide with water.

Uses Of Dissolved Acetylene

Industrial Use

Acetylene is a combustible gas used mainly in the automatic lubrification for glass bottle production moulding. It is the fuel gas in Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AAS). Acetylene is the most effective and versatile fuel gas, enabling manual applications such as welding, brazing, cutting, straightening or any other localized heating process.
