Welder was founded in 2021 and is now a global industry leader in welding consumables and equipment. The company distributes approximately 9000 tons of premium quality covered welding electrodes, gas, submerged, flux type welding wires, rectifiers, gas and submerged arc welding machines, and welding generators.
Torch welding can be a productive and creative way to use your time wisely and make something that you can be proud of. A lot of ordinary people take up torch welding as a hobby to build everything from brackets, gates, fences, and frames to entire motorbikes and cars from scratch.
But a lot of beginners wonder how to use a welding torch effectively?
There are some safety tips and standard work procedures that you should always follow when first starting out with torch welding. Not only will these tips prevent an accident, they will also improve the quality of projects that you create.
Torch Welding Basics
Torch welding has been around for a long time. It was widely used in farming and rural communities before electricity was available.
Torch welding outfits generate heat energy by burning a combination of acetylene gas and oxygen. Torch welding equipment is quite effective and it can produce flame temperatures that go up to 3200° C or 5,620° F.
The torch welding machine is quite versatile and can be used for a wide variety of projects from the smallest gadget to the largest structure. It requires a single piece of equipment that can create its own portable heat source. Torch welding apparatus can be used to heat, cut weld, and braze different kinds of metals. It is powerful enough to even work with steel.
Torch Welding Apparatus
A basic torch outfit is made up of two high-pressure cylinders with different gases. One cylinder contains oxygen and the other is for acetylene. Both cylinders are connected to the torch through two corresponding pressure control regulators. A dual-hose supplies oxygen and acetylene from the regulators.
Different types of tips can be connected to the torch nozzle to get the desired result. The handle can be fitted with a cutting head, welding tip, or heating attachment to cut, weld, or mold metal as required.
Mobile suction units from Welder are used for welding fume extraction and, depending on the model, are suitable for occasional to permanent use.
Mobile suction units are particularly flexible due to their high mobility and an operating radius of 360 degrees and contain disposable filters from 13 m² to 42 m² or cleanable filters as required.
Welder offers the ideal solution for every changing workplace.

While the equipment above integrates with a welding system to enhance the process, other welding accessories apply more directly to the workpiece. Because welding often involves joining a long seam, frequent repositioning of large pipes, tubing, and tanks is necessary. This repositioning may be automated by using a circumferential welder or a rotator.
Circumferential welders are employed when joining cylindrical workpieces such as pipes, tubes, and drums. They consist of a welding apparatus, control system, workpiece holders, and a positioning system comprised of bearings or wheels to turn cylindrical parts. Circumferential welders may have two or more welding heads for simultaneous joining at two different points of the workpiece.
Rotators (or turning rolls) are standalone units similar to a circumferential welder’s positioning apparatuses. Turning rolls with widely spaced wheels can be used to turn tanks, while those with close wheels are used to turn pipes.
Weld backing is a ceramic or metal material placed beneath the joint. It imparts numerous benefits to the joining process, including:
Ceramic backings are discarded after welding, but metallic backings are integrated as part of the final joint. All weld backings are manufactured with dimensional profiles specific to a certain weld joint, as shown in the image at right.
Welding accessories may be governed by certain published standards and specifications. Example standards include:
—AWS F2.3M: Specification for use and performance of transparent welding curtains and screens
—BS EN 730-1: Incorporating a flame (flashback) arrestor in gas welding equipment
—ANSI/IEC 60974-5: Arc welding equipment—wire feeders
—BS ISO 17683: Ceramic weld backing for marine use
