HGX®
FUEL GAS

A fuel gas that out produces acetylene
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.


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.

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 availability.

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 cost

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.

Faster 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.

The overall result is greater productivity.
