Oxy-gasoine cutting torch system

Hello, every friend! Does anybody know oxy-gasoline cutting torch? I just known it from ***************.com. It says that, comparing with oxy-acetylene cutting torch, gasoline cutting torch can save more than 85% fuel cost for steel cutting job. Futhermore, it is absolutely no backflash risk. Is it true? If somebody knows about it, pls contact me.

You CANNOT use pure oxygen near petroleum products, they will instantly ignite. That is why the gauge says 'USE NO OIL' on the face. Gasoline is explosive, not just flammable. DO NOT TRY THIS!

Actually one of the advantages of this thing is it,s claim to safety vs Acetylene. These things have been around a few years now but I still have not seen one close up except for a short demo last summer, still could not get my hands on it but it sure looks interesting. Some of the claims they make for it sounds really suspicious to me and I doubt it will ever replace the Acetylene torch but safety does seem to be an advantage and I have no doubt it is safer than Acetylene.

There is a pretty impressive video on utube. Google petrogen utube. I know very little about cutting large pieces of steel, but it sure zipped through some really thick pieces. Very little slag.

Not sure what the spammer is talking about, but my acetylene supplier was trying to sell me on a replacement last year, supposedly cheaper and just as hot. Forget what it was called. I didn't go for it as my usage isn't large anyways.

Nothing is as hot as Acetylene! Was he trying to sell you MAPP? These guys like to use terms like "more heat" or "more BTUs" both of which are very misleading. You can get "more heat" or "more BTUs" out of Propane than Acetylene, or so the sales pitch goes, but what they are saying is more BTUs per pound of fuel which don't mean squat as to actual temperature since they burn at a different rate. "More heat" is not in any way equal to hotter like some of those salesmen would have you believe. As of right now I don't think any kind of fuel gas is as hot as Acetylene.

GAS Never heard of it!! Or do you mean Natural Gas?

If you're worried about the price of the contract Try propane or tap into your natural Gas. No contract required.
You just need a differant tip. Many factories use natural gas( the same tip) Or Readily Available
I'f used to cut 4" thick steel plate. Can't get the hang of bracing though

The demo I saw last summer was very impressive also and although he claimed to be able to cut thicker steel after talking with him I have doubts about that, however cutting thicker steel cleanly is another story! That's where this outfit gets impressive, it cuts clean and seems to be less sensitive to the operators lack of steadiness due I think to the heat from the flame traveling farther down the cut which helps with preheat, I'm just guessing about that however. Contrary to what the salesman was trying to tell everyone it is the Oxygen that does the cutting not the fuel BUT if the torch flame can get the metal hotter over a larger area it makes thicker cutting much easier even if the flame is not quite as hot at the tip which apparently this thing does. I sure would like to talk to someone who would tell it straight and not some salesman with a load of BS who just tries to make it out to be more than it is, this thing just might be quite useful but for some reason it does not seem to be catching on all that well.

Propane or natural gas works ok to cut with but not as well as Acetylene nor can you weld with either propane or natural gas (either one is a PITA to use outside if the wind is blowing too! ) They are cheap however, much cheaper than Acetylene, and for that reason alone we used propane in my shop when I was still there. We did have Acetylene in the shop also for when it was needed but probably 90% of our indoor cutting needs were done with propane, it was too much trouble outside and didn't work worth a darn with a grooving tip anyway so we always used Acetylene on the service trucks.

I have only used propane to cut with, and had gotten into welding aluminum with it, I agree it's not hot enough to weld steel plate with, but that's what I have the welders for.

I mainly use my torch for cutting, and occasionally use it for brazing when the need arises, but with the age of my hoses and having to renew my oxygen lease soon, I'm seriously gonna give this a good look. I found a very decent video on YouTube form off this thread and searching slightly in the other videos on the right, and then going onto the one website I found.

I'm just lookin for now, but will have to eventually price new stuff to replace what I already have.

If your main use is cutting you cant beat the gasoline,it will cut 4in real clean and .starts faster than propane or nat gas.my cousin used his for cutting pad bolts on a 235 cat excavator, worked great. cliff
