Bharat Metal Cutting Gas

Bharat Metal Cutting Gas

BMCG is an unique hydrocarbon industrial gas mixed with an innovative additive that enhances flame temperature and produces fine cut finish at very low cost compared to DA.

BHARAT METAL CUTTING GAS IS COMPLETELY SAFE AND OPERATOR-FRIENDLY. Explosive limits (flammability) % in air BMCG ----- 2.3 9.5 Acetylene -- 2.5 80 Has lower explosive limits in air than acetylene, therefore, BMCG is less flammable than acetylene. BHARAT METAL CUTTING GAS IS NON-TOXIC AND HAS NO BACKFIRE. IN CASE OF A LEAK, BHARAT METAL CUTTING GAS CAN BE DETECTED EASILY BECAUSE OF ITS UNIQUE PUNGENT SMELL. BHARAT METAL CUTTING GAS IS STORED AT LOWER PRESSURE, THEREFORE, SAFER THAN ACETYLENE.

Acetylene Cylinder --is it Dangerous ? Un dissolved Acetylene Gas Can Explode With Shock Only Stored Without Filter Pad No Fire Required Decomposition 1 Gm C2H2 = 3.5 Gms of TNT

BHARAT METAL CUTTING GAS:


Bharat Metal Cutting gas is fortified with an innovative additive which enhances the cutting properties of the gas Achieves flame temp. around 3000 deg C - closer to Acetylene (3150 deg. C) High penetration and faster cutting speed Very effective for cutting metals of higher thickness (40 mm & above) Smooth cutting surface and reduction in slag formation

Comparison in basic properties and behaviour of DA & BMCG

LEL for BMCG = 2.5 % LEL for DA = 2.5 % HEL for BMCG = 9.5 % HEL for DA = 80 % Operating pressure for BMCG = 0. 5 kgs/cm2 Operating pressure for DA = 3 Kgs/cm2 (around 40 psi) BMCG cylinder pressure = 3 to 6 kgs/cm2 DA cylinder pressure = 18 to 20 kg/cm2.

BHARAT METAL CUTTING GAS: APPROVALS

Advantages of BMCG

Is marketed in Kgs and could be measured easily. Less Carbon formation hence low maintenance and long life of nozzles. Operator friendly. Reduces fuel inventory. Yields 40 % cost savings on overall
cutting cost.

Advantages of using BMCG

Virtually impossible to back fire or flash back Flame is much less Luminous, so less harmful to eye-sight Less cylinder handling cost Lower frequency for changing the cylinders Safer as the operating pressure is lower in cylinder

Advantages of using BMCG


Faster

cutting rate as secondary flame is higher (19080 Vs 8570 DA Kcal). Smooth cutting surface and reduction in slag formation. priced

Competitively

Easy Change over from DA to BMCG

For BMCG the same torch used for DA can be used. Only the cutting nozzle has to be changed. 3 seater torch / nozzles give better economy and lesser flash back
