SKU: ASNM Category:



An ASNM (Sheet Metal) nozzle for oxy acetylene cutting.  The ASNM (Acetylene sheet nozzle mix) nozzles are designed to fit a cutting attachment on a Type 5 shank.  They allow the user to perform neat and controlled cuts in thin sheet materials.

Key Features
  • One piece ASNM cutting nozzle
  • For cutting 0.8mm – 3.0mm materials



To fit a nozzle, the head nut is removed from the cutting torch or attachment, inserted into the seat and the nut is re-applied and tightened.

An ASNM nozzle has a hole configuration to allow a precise jet of oxy acetylene mixed gas to pre heat the metal to its ignition temperature. The other orifice expels a jet of oxygen to blow away the molten material, piercing the material and creating the cut.

When selecting a nozzle for your cutting application it is worth getting the size applicable to the material thickness to be cut.  An oversize nozzle wastes gas.


Other Information:
  • Hoses being used with the torch should be the correct type for the gas and fitted with check valves (non-return).  They are colour coded according to the gas they are designed for – red for acetylene and blue for oxygen.
  • Flashback arrestors should be installed on the regulator side of the hose.
  • A nozzle should be inspected regularly to check for damage or obstructions.
  • A poorly maintained nozzle can cause turbulent gas flow and increases the risk of flashback.
  • Obstructions to the nozzle can be caused by dirt or spatter.
  • Do not hold the nozzle too close to the workpiece. The nozzle can overheat and cause a flashback.
