APPLICATIONS OF ACETYLENE GAS

With the chemical formula of C2H2, acetylene is not a naturally occurring gas in atmospheric air. In fact, it is a synthesized gas, which is commercially produced from the chemical reaction of calcium carbide with water.

In the 19th century, it was employed in "acetylene lamps" to light homes and mining tunnels.

The colorless, odorless and tasteless gas is extremely combustible, and produces a very hot flame (over 3000 °C or 5400 °F) when mixed with oxygen thus making it a suitable application to be used in a number of industries.
