Pressurized kg/cm squared tanks


#1

my husband just brought me home a new torch set up, bless his heart.
but, the tanks (acetylene and oxygen) each have two pressure gauges
which are in kg/cm squared.

since i have never owned my own gas and oxygen tanks before, i don’t
really know where to set the pressure, but i am especially lost
since it’s not in PSi.

can anyone tell me where i need to set my pressure regulator?

thank you!

Hello Jocelyn,

I’ve got a handy-dandy little units conversion book that I totally
recommend. Anyway it says to convert from kg/cm2 to psi you should
multiply by 14.223. For psi to kg/cm2 multiply by 0.07031.

If you’re interested the book is called the “Pocket Ref” by Thomas J.
Glover, ISBN 1-885071-00-0, Sequoia Pub., Colorado (303-972-4167). I
received mine as a “you should have this” gift from my brother but
I’ve seen them for about $10 or $12 at Home Depot and the like.

Nice and small, easily fits in a shirt or back pocket, literally
thousands of unit conversions, as well as hundreds of pages of info
on gases, cutting speeds, glue, trigonometry, threads, tempering,
drilling, metals etc etc you name it. Weighs only a few ounces.

Happy times with the new torch. I’m going through that same process
with a similar system myself and just can’t wait to get everything
set up.

Cheers,
Trevor F.

hello all,

i apologize for doing this and feel quite sheepish, but i wrote to
the list on feb 28 asking about my new acetylene/oxygen torch setup
which is in kg/cm2 . . .

i got a few responses on my personal email and saved them, thrilled
to have them. but, long story short, i’ve been away from my work for
about 2 months and upon returning, my email program ate itself.
leaving me with absolutely zero emails.

so my wonderful resource of responses is gone. i managed to find
trevor f’s list response --thanks for that info trevor!

but someone else responded with tons of info on his “the little
torch” and his oxy/acetylene torch set up and i would desperately
love to have whomever that was resend me this priceless little
email, if you’re out there and willing!

thanks to all,
jocelyn

Hi, Since you know p.s.i. values you can convert kg/cm square to
p.s.i. by using pressure conversion tables.In the net you can find
these tables.As long as I remember 1Kg/cm square is equal to
14,22p.s.i.

Good luck
