About Gas Welding (Artisan)

Gas welding is a procedure of joining at least two elements in order to establish a fixed joint, using the warmth of gas ignition. There are several types of gases to be used in this procedure.

This Gas Welding Certificate course incorporates explaining the position of welding, the technology and technique of welding.

Each welded construction has a sketch, and the students are trained to be able to interpret and know the data from the sketches.

In the gas welding procedure there is always the danger of electrification, radiation, fire, or explosions. This Gas Welding Certificate course teaches the students about the danger factors and prepares them to be adequately prepared to act in a case of emergency or injury. The general health and security measures, personal protection, and first aid are all included within the theoretical part of the gas welding course and training.

Gas Welding Equipment:

  • Oxygen gas cylinder
  • Acetylene gas cylinder
  • Pressure regulator
  • Both gas hose pipes
  • Welding torch or blow pipe with set of nozzle and gas lighter
  • Trolley for the transportation of oxygen and acetylene cylinders
  • Cylinder key and spanner
  • Filler rods and fluxes.

Advantages of Gas Welding:

  • It can be applied to a wide variety of manufacturing and maintenance situations.
  • Welder has considerable control the temperature of the metal in the weld zone.
  • The equipment is versatile, low cost, self sufficient and usually portable. Beside gas welding the equipments can be used for preheating, post heating, braze welding, torch brazing and it is readily converted to oxygen cutting.

Applications of Gas welding:

  • For joining thin materials.
  • In automotive and aircraft industries, in sheet metal, fabrication jobs.
  • For joining most ferrous and non-ferrous metals e.g- Carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, aluminum, copper, nickel, magnesium and its alloy etc.
