    Which oxyacetylene flame has an excess of fuel?

    • A.

      Oxidizing

    • B.

      Neutral

    • C.

      Carborizing

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Carborizing
    Explanation
    A carborizing flame has an excess of fuel. This means that there is more fuel (acetylene) than oxygen in the flame. As a result, the flame is rich in carbon, which can lead to the formation of soot or carbon deposits on the workpiece. This type of flame is commonly used for welding or brazing applications where a reducing atmosphere is needed to prevent oxidation of the metal being worked on.

    The oxyfuel cutting process uses oxygen and what other types of gases?

    • A.

      Inert gases

    • B.

      Reactive gases

    • C.

      Mixed gases

    • D.

      Flammable gases

    Correct Answer
    D. Flammable gases
    Explanation
    The oxyfuel cutting process uses oxygen along with flammable gases. These gases are necessary to create a high-temperature flame that can melt and cut through materials. The combination of oxygen and flammable gases, such as acetylene or propane, produces a controlled and intense heat source, which is essential for the cutting process. Inert gases, reactive gases, and mixed gases do not possess the necessary flammability to generate the required heat for cutting.

    While cutting with acetylene, the oxygen working pressure is?

    • A.

      Greater than the acetylene working pressure

    • B.

      Equal to the acetylene working pressure

    • C.

      Less than the acetylene working pressure

    • D.

      A constant 20 psi

    Correct Answer
    A. Greater than the acetylene working pressure
    Explanation
    When cutting with acetylene, the oxygen working pressure needs to be greater than the acetylene working pressure. This is because oxygen is required to support the combustion of acetylene, and a higher pressure ensures a sufficient supply of oxygen for the cutting process. If the oxygen pressure is lower than the acetylene pressure, it may result in an incomplete combustion and inefficient cutting.

    While flame cutting, the preheat flames (with the cutting jets open) should be?

    • A.

      Carborizing

    • B.

      Oxidizing

    • C.

      Neutral

    • D.

      Reducing

    Correct Answer
    C. Neutral
    Explanation
    During flame cutting, the preheat flames should be neutral. This means that they should have an equal balance of oxygen and fuel, resulting in a flame that does not have an excess of either. A neutral flame ensures that the metal being cut is heated evenly and does not oxidize or reduce excessively. It provides the ideal conditions for a clean and efficient cutting process.

    Oxyacetylene torches can cut?

    • A.

      Stainless steel

    • B.

      Aluminum

    • C.

      Copper-nickell alloys

    • D.

      Carbon steels

    Correct Answer
    D. Carbon steels
    Explanation
    Oxyacetylene torches are capable of cutting through carbon steels. This is because the high heat generated by the torch can melt and oxidize the carbon in the steel, allowing for a clean and precise cut. However, it may not be as effective in cutting through other materials like stainless steel, aluminum, or copper-nickel alloys, which may require different types of cutting tools or techniques.

    If an excessive amount of preheat is used when making an oxyfuel cut, the?

    • A.

      Cutting stream may gouge the side of the cut

    • B.

      Top edge may be melted or removed

    • C.

      Cut may be incomplete

    • D.

      Sides of the kerf may be dished

    Correct Answer
    B. Top edge may be melted or removed
    Explanation
    When an excessive amount of preheat is used during an oxyfuel cut, it can cause the top edge of the cut to melt or be removed. This is because the intense heat from the preheat can exceed the melting point of the material being cut, causing it to melt or evaporate. As a result, the top edge of the cut may be compromised or completely removed, affecting the overall quality and integrity of the cut.

    It is not necessary to wear shaded lenses when oxyfuel cutting, because it uses a flame instead of an electric arc.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that shaded lenses are not necessary when oxyfuel cutting because it uses a flame instead of an electric arc. However, this is incorrect. Shaded lenses are actually required when oxyfuel cutting because the process generates intense heat, bright light, and sparks. These can cause eye damage if proper eye protection, such as shaded lenses, is not used.

    Acetylene can be used with an oxyfuel cutting tip?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Acetylene can indeed be used with an oxyfuel cutting tip. Oxyfuel cutting is a process that uses a combination of fuel gas and oxygen to generate a high-temperature flame for cutting and welding. Acetylene is commonly used as the fuel gas in oxyfuel cutting because it has a high heat content and can produce a very hot flame. Therefore, the statement "Acetylene can be used with an oxyfuel cutting tip" is true.
