Oxygen Gas (industrial welding gas) Returnable empty cylinder
Oxygen vigorously supports combustion of many materials, which will not normally burn in air. Copper, brass and high quality stainless steel are the most commonly used metals and are compatible with oxygen. Widely used with a fuel gas for cutting and welding.
- BOC Oxygen is typically supplied with a purity of 99.5% or better
- Colourless and odourless
- Does not burn but supports and accelerates combustion
- Oil, greases and solvents react violently with oxygen and metals may burn. Never use oil or grease to lubricate oxygen or oxygen equipment as they can spontaneously combust with explosive force
- When using oxygen, it is important to be aware of the hazards associated with an oxygen-enriched or deficient environment
