What is Oxygen?
Oxygen is an odorless, colorless gas or colorless to pale blue cryogenic liquid. Besides supporting life via our respiratory system, oxygen is used in various industries from steel manufacturing, aerospace technology and the treatment of sewage to name a few.
Oxygen is not flammable, but as an oxidizer it will intensify combustion or fires. With this clear hazard warning, oxygen must be kept away from combustible materials. Liquid oxygen also poses a health hazard for individuals, exposure may cause frostbite to the eyes and skin. It is key to follow safety practices and wear appropriate personal protection equipment to prevent serious accidents or injury.
