Acetylene Torch Tip

May 14, 2011

What is the difference in acetylene cutting torches?

I see some with three metal tubes going to the cutting tip and some have only two tubes going to the cutting tip. Is it a major difference and what does the third tube do?

the 2 line type is for brazing and heating, the 3 line type is for cutting and the third line is for oxygen to produce a hotter flame and produce pressure to blow off the slag.
