Oxy Fuel[edit | edit source]

Oxy fuel refers to an oxygen and fuel gas mixture being burned rapidly from compressed sources, such as large acetylene cylinders or more commonly, a propane tank (one you may find on a barbecue). A variety of fuel gases can be used in this task, such as propane, acetylene, natural gas, compressed gasoline fumes or anything else easily combustible. However, each type of gas has its own unique pro's and con's of usage.
