Gases for Construction Operations

Construction operations need bulk gases to power equipment and handle welding and cutting processes on-site. Many gases play a role in productivity for these applications.

Acetylene is often used with oxygen in an oxy-fuel cutting process. This process uses a combination of oxygen and fuel gas, like acetylene, to weld or cut metals. Propane and propylene are also fuel gases used for oxy-fuel cutting, but acetylene can create the hottest temperatures among the commercially available gases. Using acetylene offers a clean and efficient cut.

Propane is an excellent alternative fuel source for various construction equipment types when electricity is unavailable on-site. Machinery like heaters, concrete grinders and forklifts are essential for many construction sites, and propane can easily power them. This fuel gas also burns cleaner than other fuel sources.

Construction teams often use hydrogen in plasma cutting and welding applications. This gas is known for reducing oxidation, so it’s ideal for mixing with argon for welding stainless steel. Hydrogen also presents possible fuel cell options as technologies in the construction sector expand.

Argon blends well with cutting gases like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen to improve arc stability and enhance the overall quality of a weld. This inert gas creates a shield around welding gases to reduce contact with atmospheric gases. It is also key for gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW).

Helium is an inert gas like argon, so it’s also used as a welding shield on construction sites. This gas has high thermal conductivity, and it can prevent oxidation and shield the molten weld pool when high heat is required. Typically, high-heat welding applications include aluminum, copper and stainless steel.
