The Rexarc 301 Acetylene Cylinder Filling Plant is designed for maximum carbide yield and high efficiency. The rated plant capacity is 8.5 m3 per hour using USA grade calcium carbide. The Rexarc acetylene plant is constructed and inspected with a best practice policy that meets the intent of design principles and manufacturing practices from Section VIII of the ASME codes. It is also designed to NFPA 51A: “Standards for Acetylene Charging Plants 2006”. Equipped with all of the safety features found only in Rexarc plants, the 301 is characterized with low building and installation costs.
An ASME certified set of three driers is mounted on the compressor for easy access. A flame arrester for safety and a back pressure valve is provided, which maintains a minimum pressure of 14 bars to remove the oil and water vapors from the acetylene after compression.
