The KVK Acetylene Generator and Acetylene Gas Cylinder are advanced design, incorporating several features not ordinarily found in other generators and cylinders. The KVK Acetylene generator is fully automatic. Pneumatically controlled valves and highly sensitive sensors, integral with the temperature control instruments, perform all operations. These, in turn, open the water inlet valve or residue drain valve etc. Two hydraulic pumps help to open and close the supply of calcium carbide, which is fed into the generator by screw feed conveyors. The screw feed mechanism and the agitators are operated by flameproof motors and fittings. The entire operation is perfectly synchronized to achieve maximum efficiency and simplicity in operation. Any failure, whether it is of power supply, water or air is signaled visually and also audibly when an alarm bell rings to alert the operator.
(Only flame proof lights & electrical fittings according to 152148-68 (group II) or 655-229 may be used in an Acetylene plant building. Acetylene cylinders must be of specification 15: 7312: 1974 or ICC: 8.)
Temperature Control: The KVK Acetylene Generator can be set to operate at a given temperature, regardless of the size of carbide used or temperature of the cooling water, A sensitive sensor actuates a pneumatic control that adds water to the generator tank when the temperature exceeds the set limit, thus maintaining a given standard temperature. This helps in the complete utilization of carbide, which is a very expensive raw material.
