Lighting & Adjustment of the Oxyacetylene Welding Flames - Part 1


Lighting the flame:

  • Open the main valve on the acetylene tank approximately 1/2 turn. This charges the pressure regulator at the top of the tank.

  • Open the pressure regulator valve on the acetylene tank (turn clockwise to open) and adjust the pressure in the acetylene line to 5 psi. DO NOT pressurize the acetylene over 15 psi - it will explode.

  • Open the acetylene pin valve on the handle of the welding tool, letting acetylene escape. Tweak the pressure regulator valve until the regulator pressure is constant at 5 psi. Close the acetylene pin valve.

  • Open the main valve on the oxygen tank. Turn the valve until it is fully open (until it stops turning).

  • Open the pressure regulator valve on the oxygen tank (turn clockwise to open) and adjust the pressure in the oxygen line to 10 psi.

  • Open the oxygen pin valve on the handle of the welding tool, letting oxygen escape. Tweak the pressure regulator valve until the regulator pressure is constant at 10 psi. Close the oxygen pin valve.

  • Slightly open the acetylene valve (approx. 1/8 turn), until you can just barely hear acetylene escaping.

  • Make sure there is no person or anything flammable in the path of the nozzle. Use the striker to ignite the acetylene. The flame should be yellow and will give off a lot of soot.
