A fuel gas that out produces
for cutting and brazing at a fraction of the cost.
The beginning of a cut on a 6 foot (2 meter)
long 1/2 " (125 mm.) thick plate shows faster preheating
and piercing using HGX Fuel Gas and
oxygen versus L.P.G. and oxygen.
The end of the cut on the same plate,
HGX using less oxygen has performed the cut
faster, cleaner with less slag build-up than
the Butane/Propane oxygen mixture.
Finally there is a reliable fuel gas for cutting, heating, and
brazing operationsthat will provide higher performance than acetylene,
at a much lower price.HGX is the new standard of economy,
performance, and safety for gases usedin these metalworking processes. HGX
is a superior high temperature, highheat content fuel gas with worldwide
A 100 lbs./50 KG. cylinder
of HGX Fuel Gas provides over 5 times the BTUs
of a standard 5 cu. m3 Acetylenecylinder, while costing less.
Here is what it means to you.
Faster preheat and piercing rates for cutting.
The piercing flame temperature of HGX Fuel Gas exceeds the flame temperatureof most cutting fuels . It starts the cut as rapidly as acetylene and
preheatsand pierces faster than other combined cutting fuels at a lower
Faster cutting travel speeds.HGX Fuel Gas is capable of
cutting travel speeds equal to acetylene whileusing lower quantities of
oxygen than acetylene during cuts of up to 15"thick. Furthermore,
LPG (Propane and Butane) and other types of fuel gasesare not as fast in
cutting steel yet, also use much greater quantities ofoxygen for the same
amount of production.
The highest combined inner and outer flame
temperature plus the neutralflame temperature in oxygen provides the
highest total heating value inthe industry. HGX Fuel Gas has greater
practical value than any other cuttingfuel.
Reduces slag formation
and easier removal.HGX Fuel Gas contains a balanced compound of metal
organic material in apure hydrocarbon solvent. The combustion catalyst of
metal organic compoundsinhibits the formation of molten slag, changing it
into a material whichis vaporized in the burning process and deposited in
dry form. The resultis the smoothest surface after cutting.
heat transfer for brazing, heating, bending, cambering, straightening,hardening, and melting operations.Whether you are using an HGX and
Oxygen mixture or an HGX and air mixture,the superior heating value
(neutral flame temperature and inner and outerflame temperature), that
is the total heating value, allows for faster heattransfer to the metal.
This means faster brazing, heating and metal workingoperations.
Safer and operator friendly. Non-toxic, non-injurious to health.
No torch backfire. Non-sensitive toshock with a low explosive range.
Creates no dangerous by-products. No annoyingfumes and easy to use with
standard equipment for LPG fuel gases. Long lifefor two-piece, non-fouling
recessed tip torches used for cutting.
result is greater productivity.
