Soitaab Oxy-Plasma Technology
The great ease with which you make oxy-fuel of iron and carbon steel, or low alloy steel, is due to the following conditions:
- These materials are oxidized (oxidation intense) at a lower temperature than the melting temperature
- The oxidation temperature (1050 ° C) is lower than the melting temperature (1530 ° C) of said material
- The oxidation of iron is accompanied by a significant development of heat which varies with the composition of the slag (exothermic reaction). This heat generation contributes, with that issued by the torch, to maintain the cutting face to the oxidation temperature thereby ensuring the continuity of the cut.
With the Oxy-fuel it can be cut up to 300mm thickness or over, starting from a minimum of 6mm. For less thicknesses there is danger of material deformation. Cutting speeds vary between 100 mm / min and 850/900 mm / min depending on the thickness of the material, its chemical composition, size, type of gas used and oxygen pressure.
