Oxy-fuel cutting services at Steel Plate
Oxy-fuel cutting is a dependable process that is used to cut steel and other metals of various thicknesses using fuel gasses and oxygen. In this process, pure oxygen is used to increase the flame temperature to allow localized melting of material. In oxy-fuel cutting, a torch is used to heat metal to its kindling temperature. A stream of oxygen is then trained on the metal, burning it into a metal oxide that flows out of the kerf as dross. So, the stream of oxygen has the capacity to eliminate the liquid waste matter without disrupting the solid steel. An ongoing process called the exothermic reaction cuts the steel while the cutting torch continues to do its job.
