Acetylene Gas Plant

Home   /   Acetylene Gas Plant

Acetylene Generators

We manufacture acetylene gas plant with the best quality materials and components. Acetylene gas is one of the most efficient fuel gases used in wide range of industrial processes. We have customers around the globe that use the fuel gas for sustaining their industrial processes. Acetylene gas is produced as a result of reaction between calcium carbide and water. A lot of heat is generated because of reaction between calcium carbide and water to stop explosion and ensuring safety measures. Manufacturing is carried out according to internationally approved standards. The fuel gas is dissolved in liquid acetone at high temperature making the fuel gas safe for storage and usage. Acetone is dissolved in acetylene gas cylinders to make the fuel gas non-reactive. A porous material is also poured into the cylinder to keep acetylene gas in liquid form making it easier to transport.

Our manufacturing and fabricating of acetylene gas plants is executed in compliance with internationally approved standards. We have entered into a technical collaboration with ING. L. & A. Boschi, an internationally acclaimed Italian company for its superb designs and advanced technology. Our acetylene plants come in different capacities ranging from 15m3/hour to 200m3/hour. Our acetylene generating systems use the superior technology, flawless designs and are offered at unbeatable prices. The plants are fully automated and incur low maintenance and operating costs. Being fully automated, a single semi-skilled operator will be able to handle the machinery. Manufacturing is done with high grade stainless steel making the acetylene plants long-lasting, reliable and explosion-free.

Application of Acetylene Gas

Acetylene gas is considered one of the most efficient fuel gases. It is used in various industrial processes including the following:

  • Welding, Cutting, and Heat Treating
  • Portable Lighting
  • Plastics and Acrylic Acid Derivatives
  • Production of Chemicals
  • Used in volatilization of carbon in radiocarbon dating
  • Used for making polyacetylene films
  • Aids in making Polyacetylene
  • Reaction with iodine produces a highly electrically conducting material
  • Useful for carburization
  • Feedstock for making acrylic fibers, glasses, paints, resins, and polymers

Scope of Supply of Acetylene Gas Plants

Acetylene generator: We use advanced acetylene generator is stationary carbide to water automatic generator with twin hoppers. Acetylene is generated as a result of the chemical reaction between calcium carbide and water. The machinery is designed and manufactured to generate acetylene at a pressure of 7 psi.

Condenser: Condenser Functions by cooling and purifying the gas thereby condensing the excessive moisture. Cooled water is circulated on the shell side from bottom to top. The condenser is designed and manufactured to suit all local conditions provided sufficient water flow is maintained.

Low pressure dryer: The solid anhydrous calcium chloride at (at least) 80% purity in this pressure vessel soaks up the moisture in the gas. It becomes fluid and is collected at the bottom and drained.

The LP purifier: In the LP purifier, this vessel gets divided into 2 sections by wire mesh framework each section charged of purifying mass. The chemicals in the purifying mass soak up impurities, including H2S phosgene.

Ammonia Scrubber: The component is a vertical vessel of latest design with a level gauge and water make-up line. A particular level as marked on the level indicator, which has to be maintained for efficient working. All the water soluble impurities for instance ammonia are scrubbed/removed in the Ammonia scrubber.

Acetylene compressor: The acetylene compressor employed in the systems is a multi-stage compressor which is immersed in a water tank to shun any pressurized gas to get in touch with air and also to make sure that all the components are continuously cooled for highest safety. It is driven by a flame proof electric motor.

High Pressure Drier: High Pressure Drier Three Stage filled with special packing and anhydrous chloride to remove impurities from the compressed acetylene gas.

Cylinders filling manifold: Filling Manifold with two headers, non-return valves, flashback arrestor pressure gauges and control valve.

Flame proof level controller: Strict usage of accurate and reliable infrared level controller senses high level and low level in accuracy of millimeters and designed for hazardous atmosphere and has very long life. It meets the criterion of CE standards directive.

Instrument Control Panel: Instrument Control Panel is employed for controlling of high and low level pressure monitoring in generator, high and low pressure cut off in the compressor for high safety due to accuracy of pressure transmitters as specified by CE manual.
