Hot, Hot, Hot…high pressure natural gas for pre-weld heating, bending, heat treat

We put two torches on opposite sides of a large tube and flange...one torch with Chemolene and the other torch with just natural gas at 18 psi.

 

After 30 minutes the natural gas side was

120-130F hotter!

You don’t need expensive fuel gases or gas additives for quick pre-weld heating when you have natural gas available from a G-TEC Natural Gas Torch Booster.

 

A torch fueled with natural gas has a large bulbous flame that actually has more BTUs than acetylene so it is perfect for heating large areas. The bigger the item being heated the better natural gas performs compared to other gases.

 

Natural gas costs half as much as acetylene and 75% less than propane or propylene. Best of all there are no limits on withdrawal rates (acetylene is limited to 15 psi) and no icing of the cylinder valve that is common with liquid fuel gases.

 

G-TEC Torch Booster is directly connected to the utility gas supply so you never run out and don’t have to change cylinders in the middle of a big job!

We set two torches, one on the right with Chemolene and the one on the left with just high pressure natural gas.

Do you use a Belchfire Torch for pre/post weld heating?

After 30 minutes the side heated with natural gas measured 460F and 620F.

After 30 minutes the Chemolene side was 330F and 500F. The natural gas side was 120F+ hotter!
