Bharat Metal Cutting Gas – providing you the cutting edge in business

Oxy-fuel Cutting is indispensable in industry today, thanks to Mr Thomas Fletcher fromWarrington, England,who discovered that steel could be cut by means of jet of oxygen directed on to a portion of it previously heated to red heat, making it a revolutionary discovery in 1885. Although the possibility of oxygen cutting was appreciated as early as in the year 1885, commercial application only started 20 years later.

Since then oxy-fuel cutting has produced far reaching changes in industrial practices relating to cutting and shaping of steel.

In the Indian petroleum industry, Bharat Petroleum revolutionised the world of cutting, welding and brazing by introducing an innovative product. While the cutting of metal has been done using Oxy-Acetylene Metal Cutting Gas Composition traditionally, Acetyleneis expensive and has availability constraints.

BPCL has painstakingly studied the needs of the industry which need metal cutting gasto cut metal and came up with Bharat Metal Cutting Gas (BMCG), an ideal substitute for Acetylene. BMCG offers superior cutting at a low cost and is an ideal fuel for cutting and brazing applications.

Advantages of Bharat Metal Cutting Gas are:

  • Superior cutting at low cost (better cutting speed, kerf formation and surface finish)
  • Low oxygen consumption
  • Reduces cylinder inventory by at least three times compared to Oxy Acetylene
  • Low slag formation
  • BMCG can easily cut 12 inch (300 mm) thick metal and even more.
  • Has a lower explosive limit in air and oxygen than Acetylene. Hence has lower band of inflammability than Acetylene
  • The cylinder pressure of BMCG (6-7kg/cm2) is one third of Acetylene (17-18 kg/cm2). Hence they are safe to use.
  • BMCG cylinders are easier to handle due to lighter weight
  • BMCG cylinders are available in a range of pack sizes (19kg, 35kg & 47.5kg) to suit specific requirement of customers.
  • Awareness and education programs on safety to the end users
