This course will discuss the many different types of arc welding cut types. It will cover oxyacetylene flame cutting and equipment, safety guidelines when using oxygen and acetylene, flashback arrestors, operator variables, the definition of plasma cutting plasma cutting equipment, and cut quality.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Oxyacetylene flame cutting and equipment
  • Safety guidelines when using oxygen and acetylene
  • Flashback arrestors
  • Operator variables
  • The definition of plasma cutting
  • Plasma cutting equipment
  • Cut quality

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is oxyacetylene welding?
Oxyacetylene welding, commonly referred to as gas welding, is a process which relies on the combustion of oxygen and acetylene.

What safety guidelines should you follow when working around oxygen?
The following should be considered when working around oxygen: if oxygen comes into contact with oil or grease, it will burst into flames; never use oil or grease on oxygen cylinder valves or regulators; make sure hands and gloves are free of oil and grease before handling cylinders; crack open the cylinder valve then close it before installing the regulator to clear the valve of any dirt.

What is the primary function of a gas regulator?
The primary function of a gas regulator is to control gas pressure. It reduces the high pressure of the bottle-stored gas to the working pressure of the torch and maintains the pressure during welding.

What is plasma cutting?
Plasma cutters work by sending a pressurized gas, such as nitrogen, argon, or oxygen, through a small restricted opening (the nozzle). In the center of the nozzle is a negatively charged electrode. When power is applied to the negative electrode, the tip of the nozzle is touched to the metal. The connection creates a circuit.

How do you determine what a quality plasma cut looks like?
Quality plasma cuts should have smooth faces with dross or slag that is easily removed. For superior cuts on stainless steel and aluminum, a plasma gas other than compressed air might be necessary.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
