Most often used in welding, a blowtorch is a device that uses combustible gas to make flames hot enough to provide precise cuts in metal or fuse metal pieces together. Also called blowlamps, types of blowtorches range from professional grade to small kitchen torches found in culinary stores. The type of blowtorch used depends on the type of task involved.

Twee citaten uit de bovenstaande wikipedialink blow torch:
The archaic term "blowpipe" is sometimes still used in relation to oxy-acetylene welding torches.
En:
The blowtorch is referred to in industry and trade as per the fuel consumed by the tool:
Gas:
propane gas, see Propane torch
MAPP gas
butane gas
liquid petroleum gas (LPG) with ambient atmospheric air via a replaceable LPG cylinder.
oxy-gas torch

Blowtorching met oxyacetyleen of oxy-fuel (welding and) cutting is gangbaar, zoals Barend en Kitty aangeven, maar dit mag ook gewoon gas cutting genoemd worden.

neutral  Barend van Zadelhoff: Een 'blow torch' is duidelijk geen snijbrander, Lianne. See applications: brander/soldeerlamp / Een snijbrander is bv. '(oxyacetylene) cutting torch http://tinyurl.com/hnsvsl9 // See: http://tinyurl.com/gsoxz52

  -> Ik heb er een referentie aan toegevoegd, Barend. En nog een keer met de relevante tekst in vette letter.

agree  Kitty Brussaard: See additional info provided by Emma (after you posted your answer) and D-box. I agree with you that this almost certainly refers to 'snijbranden' and would therefore suggest 'oxy-fuel (torch/gas) cutting', 'flame cutting' or even simply 'burning' :-)

Reference information:
Cutting Torch Oxy fuel Safety - The Burning Process

Technically speaking, when using an oxy fuel cutting torch to separate metal, are you ‘cutting’ or ‘burning’ the metal?

Burning.


Although commonly referred as cutting, the actual chemical process is burning.

When BURNING metal, why can’t an oxy fuel cutting torch be used on aluminum or stainless steel successfully?

Lack of iron content in the metal. The combustion process of burning steel is actually oxidation.

Aluminum and stainless will not rust due a lack iron content.

(...)

Cutting or burning of steel, requires an oxygen purity content of 99%. When steel is brought to its kindling temperature, the combustion process will initiate when oxygen purity of 99% is added directly to the steel.

(...)

To initiate a cut or burn, the metal must be pre-heated to its kindling temperature. At that point, pure pressurized oxygen is introduced in the flame, causing the metal to oxidize and the velocity of the oxygen blows the burned metal away.
