Description / Abstract:

This standard describes the equipment, procedures, and safe practices for the oxyfuel cutting of steel. It is for the operators of both hand and machine torches and is recommended for management personnel associated with the oxyfuel cutting process.

Oxyfuel gas cutting is a process whereby a metal (usually an iron base alloy) is heated to its kindling temperature (well below the melting point) by an oxyfuel gas flame and then burned rapidly by a regulated jet of oxygen. A cutting torch is used for this operation. Although this recommended practice is not written with mandatory requirements, mandatory language, such as the use of “shall,” will be found in those portions of the document where failure to follow the instructions or procedures could produce inferior, misleading, or unsafe results.
