Acetylene

Acetylene is an organic gas that has numerous applications. However, inhaling it can also cause complications. Therefore, it is necessary to take precautions. These precautions include taking the necessary steps to prevent Acetylene inhalation.

Sources

There are several sources of acetylene. It is used as a raw material in the production of various organic chemicals. It is also widely used as a fuel. However, acetylene can become highly explosive. It is therefore used with care.

There are two main methods for producing acetylene. The first is by heating calcium carbide with water. The chemical reaction is known as the wet process. The second method involves a submerged flame. The resulting acetylene is dissolved in a solvent.

The most common source of acetylene is natural gas. In the United States, 66% of acetylene production is derived from natural gas. In 1991, eight plants produced 352 million lb of acetylene. The acetylene was used for various applications, including illumination. The acetylene demand increased significantly during the 1980s and 1990s, primarily due to the discovery of new and cheaper conversion materials.

Acetylene can be manufactured from a wide range of hydrocarbons and Oxygen. The simplest way to produce acetylene is to combine water with calcium carbide. This produces a controlled flow of acetylene. A more efficient method of producing acetylene was discovered by the German firm BASF.
