The recent “new to acetylene thread” caught my interest when others
started sharing shut down routines for your tank(s) &lines. I would
love to compare others’ routines. It may be apple/oranges because my
set up is propane/Oxy.
My tank shut down order at the end of work, with flame engaged:
Screw out Oxy regulator valve and when Oxy burned off, shut down
With propane flame still engaged, screw out propane regulator
valve until burned off/ pressure gone, then shut down propane tank
Screw down(shut) torch gas controls.
I do this because in addition to bleeding out the lines, I know the
regulators are doing their job.
