Flame Temperatures some Common Gases

Adiabatic flame temperatures for some common fuel gases - propane, butane, acetylene and more - air or oxygen atmosphere

The flame temperatures for some common fuel gases can be found in the table below:

Fuel GasCombustion with Oxygen
(oC)
Combustion with Air
(oC)
Acetylene 3480 2500
Butane 1970
Carbon Monoxide 2121
