Acetylene as fuel gas achieves superior performance. Yet handling and working with it calls for special care, guidelines and technology. For Linde, keeping your employees and your workplace safe is a top priority.
Controlled and safe handling of acetylene
As is true for all fuel gases, safe handling with acetylene is advised.
Yet, since acetylene is flammable and above all reactive, its unique characteristics can create distinct hazards. Special care is necessary from transport to storage and operation. Linde provides a number of innovative solutions created for safety, measurement and control at all stages.

It is true for all fuel gases, the uncontrolled mixing of acetylene and air or oxygen presents an explosion hazard. Acetylene with air or oxygen combines to form an explosive mixture that can be ignited by a spark or the like, and can cause a potentially large explosion. To eliminate this hazard, a number of safety precautions should be taken. Linde’s latest generation of injector burners and innovative control and safety technology are designed to prevent the formation and ignition of an acetylene/ air mixture to provide maximum safety.
