NC+ Cutting GasNational Gas has developed a revolutionary new alternative cutting technology that will change the way metal is cut. Traditionally, cutting of metal sheets has always been done using the oxy-Acetylene mixture. Acetylene is expensive, highly unsafe and damaging to the environment. The NC+ Cutting Gas is a hydrocarbon-based cutting solution that offers unmatched economy on overall cutting cost as compared to acetylene.
NC+ is operator –friendly and safer than acetylene. It is also non-toxic and has low backfire tendency. In case of a leak, NC+ can be easily detected due to its unique pungent smell.
|DA (Dissolved Acetylene)||NC+|
|Backfire Tendency||Very High||Low|
|Explosive Limits In Air||3% --- 93%||2.5% --- 9.3%|
|Operating Pressure||1 --- 15 psi||1 --- 133 psi|
|Heat Emission Primary Flame (kcal/m3)||4512||4164|
|Heat Emission Secondary Flame (kcal/m3)||8570||19080|
|Total Heat Value (kcal/m3)||13082||23244|
|Tare Weight (22KG Cylinder)||65 - 70 KG||19 - 21 KG (Easy Handling)|
|Inventory||High. 6 DA = 1 NC+ Cylinder.||Low (1 NC+ Cylinder replaces almost 6 DA.|
|Bulk Supply (Piping)||Piping is not advisable. Can only be used through cylinders||Pipeline transportation is safe|
How to shift from DA to NC+?

SAFETY & PERFORMANCE
10 times safer than Acetylene because of 10 times lower explosive limits than Acetylene. Low cylinder gas pressure (6-7 kg/cm2). Low backfire tendency. Stable gas. Low slag formation. NC+ can easily cut 12 inch (300 mm)thick metal and even more. NC+ cylinders are easier to handle due to lighter weight.
Up to 30% cost saving in overall oxy fuel cutting cost. Superior cut finish, narrow kerf formation. Low Oxygen consumption. Reduced cylinder inventory by 5-6times. Reduced logistic cost due to 1cylinder of NC+ replacing 5 cylinders of DA. High penetration. Smooth cutting surface and reduction in slag formation.
NC+ has presence in Oman, UAE, Qatar,KSA and Malaysia and National Gas is aiming to develop NC+ markets in other Middle East and South East Asian countries. National Gas offers a reliable energy solution for users coupling assured local capabilities with proven global expertise.
