Acetylene ( D A ) Gas Cylinder
We, Axcel gases along with our associated companies are a renowned Acetylene gas cylinder manufacturer, supplier and exporters in India. Acetylene gas cylinders are sometimes referred to as Dissolved Acetylene gas cylinders and D A gas cylinders as well. These are special types of carbon alloy steel cylinders shells, filled with monolithic porous mass. Porous mass is nothing but a chemical substance (Calcium Silicate) having porosity of 90-92 %, in which solvents like Acetone or DMF is being added for further dissolution of Acetylene Gas. Acetylene is a highly flammable and unstable gas at high pressure and needs to be dissolved in any solvent like Acetone or DMF (Dimethaylformamide).
For the safety reasons, generally All the Acetylene Cylinders are equipped with Fusible Plugs, which is nothing but a safety device so that the cylinder does not explodes / blast off in case of fire happened inside the cylinder.
We also supply Acetylene Cylinder quads or cascade as per particular requirement of the customers.

Acetylene cylinders are basically of two types, namely Seamless and Welded.
- Seamless Cylinders are the cylinders in which the complete cylinder shell is made of single part of carbon alloy steel pipe and is without any welding or joints
- Welded Cylinders are cylinders in which Top, Middle and Bottom parts are being made separately and thereafter welded together using Sub merged arc welding as well as Metal Gas Welding technique. This is also called as 3 parts welded acetylene cylinders.
