Fuel gas properties

A high temperature fuel gas/oxygen flame produces a quick increase of temperature on the surface of the work piece. A fuel gas/air flame works with a lower temperature (due to the amount of nitrogen in the air). The mixture is easily adjustable at all flame stages. The heating effect on the surface work piece is lowered and thoroughly heating the work piece can be achieved with both fuel gas/air burners and fuel gas/vacuum air burners.
