What are the uses of Oxygen?


Oxygen is used most often for its life-sustaining and combustion supporting properties. UHP Grade is used for organic and inorganic chemical synthesis. Zero Grade is used as a fuel gas in various types of chemical analyzers. Oxygen is medically used in breathing apparatuses, transmitting oxygen to patients efficiently. Oxygen is also used for oxidation reactions -- the most obvious example is burning. Fires require oxygen to burn. This is how an oxy-acetylene torch works. The additional oxygen makes the flame much hotter and it can effectively cut metal (by melting it).

Oxygen gas is available in compressed gas cylinders and bulk.
