Oxygen and acetylene hose has a wide range of apps. It is a common welding tool and often used in welding, cutting and other processes. In fact, it consists of two parts, an oxygen hose and an acetylene hose. There are many specs and models of welding hose. While different specs are ideal for various apps. Next, let me show you the specs and precautions of twin welding hose.
Specs of oxygen and acetylene hose
The specs vary based on various work. In general, the inner diameter of oxy acetylene hose is 5-25mm. While the outer diameter is 12-36mm.
How to choose the twin welding hose
In fact, the selection should be based on the specific welding process and equipment.
First, choose the right diameter
For hand welding, it is better to choose a small size hose. Because it be more easier for you to control the flame. For machine welding, a large diameter hose can increase the welding speed.
Choose the right thickness
Thick hose has better burn property. But at the same time, it also increases the weight and difficulty of use. Therefore, when you select the thickness, consider the factors such as welding process, equipment and usage condition.
Pay attention to flame temp
Flame temps are suitable for various welding works. During use, adjust the flame temp based on actual needs. Then it will not affect the welding quality.
