"Your gas provides the smoothest surface after the cut is made, with less slag and spatter than any cutting fuel I have every used, including acetylene.” - Welding shop owner

Finally, there is a reliable fuel gas for cutting, heating, and brazing operations that will provide higher performance than acetylene, at a much lower price. HGX® is the new standard of economy, performance, and safety for gases used in these metal-working processes. HGX® is a superior high-temperature, high heat content fuel gas with worldwide availability.

FASTER PREHEATING AND PIERCING RATES FOR CUTTING
The piercing flame temperature of HGX® Fuel Gas exceeds the flame temperature of most cutting fuels. It starts the cut as rapidly as acetylene and preheats and pierces faster than other combined cutting fuels at a lower cost.

FASTER CUTTING TRAVEL SPEEDS
HGX® Fuel Gas is capable of cutting travel speeds equal to acetylene while using lower quantities of oxygen during cuts of up to 15-inches thick. Furthermore, LPG (propane and butane) and other types of fuel gases are not as fast in cutting steel, yet they use much greater quantities of oxygen for the same amount of production. The highest combined inner and outer flame temperature plus the neutral flame temperature in oxygen provides the highest total heating value in the industry. HGX® Fuel Gas has greater practical value than any other cutting fuel.

REDUCES SLAG FORMATION AND FACILITATES REMOVAL
HGX® Fuel Gas contains a balanced compound of metal organic material in a pure hydrocarbon solvent. The combustion catalyst of metal organic compounds inhibits the formation of molten slag, changing it into a material which is vaporized in the burning process and deposited in dry form. The result is the smoothest surface after cutting.

FASTER HEAT TRANSFER FOR BRAZING, HEATING, BENDING, CAMBERING, STRAIGHTENING, HARDENING, AND MELTING OPERATIONS
Whether you are using an HGX®-oxygen mixture or an HGX®-air mixture, the superior heating value (neutral flame temperature and inner and outer flame temperatures) allows for faster heat transfer to the metal. This means faster brazing, heating, and metal working operations.
