15 Positive Pressure Type Mixing chamber is located inside the valve bodyRequires high pressure to mix gases
16 Injector TypeAcetylene is injected into the oxygen stream using venturi actionMixing chamber creates turbulence to further mix gases
17 Welding Tips Solid copper Two different types of tips Do not drop tips One pieceTwo pieceDo not drop tipsDo not try to remove hot tips
18 Tip Cleaners Orifice size and shape must be maintained Splatter from base metal may contaminate tipTip cleaners use a round file type cleanerOnly correct size cleaners should be usedTips should be filed off perpendicular to orifice
19 Welding Eye Protection The shade used should be dark enough to protect the eyes from annoying glare; yet light enough to permit the welder to see his work.
