Propylene QuickView

  1. 1. QuickViewQuickView Propylene A Fuel Gas Alternative to Acetylene Improved Safety and Efficiency MATHESON QuickView Application Review and Summary© 2012MATHESON
  2. 2. QuickViewQuickView Propylene is Versatile • Flame Hardening * In most cases, • Flame Cutting Propylene is • Metalizing faster than any • Soldering other fuel gas. • Brazing • Pre-heating • Stress-relieving© 2012MATHESON * ask about hardness limitations
  3. 3. QuickViewQuickView Propylene Can Reduce Rejects • Cuts clean, virtually eliminates grinding • Hardens uniformly, no out-of-spec surfaces • Metalizes smoothly, no porosity, tight bonds • Joins efficiently, ideal for the multi-job plant© 2012MATHESON
  4. 4. QuickViewQuickView Propylene is FAST * • 15% faster than Acetylene for flame cutting • 21% faster than Propane or Natural Gas for flame cutting • 28% faster than Acetylene for metalizing • 21% faster than Propane for flame hardening© 2012MATHESON * Speed advantage = typical application average performance
  5. 5. QuickViewQuickView Propylene Does More Work • Less cylinder handling • Easier to store and transport = • Fewer cylinder changes • Lower cylinder rental One 63 lb. Four 300 cu. ft. Propylene Cylinder Acetylene Cylinders© 2012MATHESON
  6. 6. QuickViewQuickView Propylene is Safe • Stable as a liquid and as a gas • Can be used up to 135 psi @ 70ºF • Does not detonate if a cylinder is Acetylene Propylene dropped or dented • Backfire and flashback resistant • Propylene cylinders weigh less than Acetylene cylinders; reduces risk of injury 113 lb. wt. 240 lb. wt.© 2012MATHESON
  7. 7. QuickViewQuickView Propylene is Cost Effective Fuel Fuel Oxygen Labor Total Cost Cost Cost Cost Acetylene $1.50 + $3.36 + $25.20 = $30.06 Propylene $1.26 + $3.08 + $22.80 = $27.14 Propane $0.46 + $4.95 + $31.92 = $37.33 Natural Gas $0.00 + $4.84 + $31.92 = $36.76 Calculations based on costs per 100 feet of 1 inch plate. Labor estimate is based on typical cutting speed for each gas.© 2012MATHESON Ask your MATHESON rep to show you the detailed calculations.
  8. 8. QuickViewQuickView Switching to Propylene is Easy • No change in technique • Parts for Propylene service are different than for Acetylene – Tips, Hose, and Regulators for use with Propylene will need to be used – These items are common and easy to find, and are not expensive • Propylene is not as corrosive as Acetylene – Parts require less maintenance – Parts last longer© 2012MATHESON
  9. 9. QuickViewQuickView In Review … • Propylene is an effective alternative Thank you to Acetylene for your • Propylene can deliver better results time! in less time • Propylene is safer to transport and to use • Making the switch to Propylene is easy • Learn more: contact your MATHESON rep or visit one of our stores • Find us fast at: www.MathesonGas.com/contactus.aspx© 2012MATHESON
