Acetylene E Size Cylinder Now Available - December 2017: Sydney Only Great news we now have Acetylene available in E size cylinders for our Sydney customers. Acetylene is a fuel gas that is ideal for cutting, flame hardening, and Oxy-Acetylene welding. You can now purchase your own cylinder and have it delivered to you for one price including the gas, cylinder, and GST. Whenever the cylinder requires refilling, we come to you and swap it over fora full cylinder. Simple. Our brand new E size Acetylene cylinders hold 3.2m3 of Acetylene and are free of asbestos, unlike other suppliers in the market. In terms of welding quality, with a heat transfer rate of 3,100C, oxy-acetylene is the best cutting & heating gas available. A research project conducted over 2008 and 2009 by the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing concluded that acetylene was a safe gas. It highlighted that mechanical impact alone cannot initiate acetylene decomposition, that only a cylinder that had been exposed to direct fire was at any risk of decomposition, and that one-hour cooling was enough to ensure that no decomposition was ongoing in these cylinders. The cylinders must be stored in an upright position that doesn’t allow for falling or knocking over, must not be rolled, and when handling them one should wear eye protection, safety shoes, and gloves. Rent Free Gas is able to supply customers with Acetylene for a multitude of uses, but our customers primarily use our Acetylene for welding and cutting. Our rent free model allows our customers to purchase their own Acetylene cylinder which they will never have to pay rent on and that will come completely full of gas, delivered for free to Sydney.
