Our membranes can be used to generate oxygen enriched air streams with o2 purity of up to 50%. On that note, we have experienced an increase in OEA interest recently and wanted to remind everybody of the safety precautions of working with oxygen or oxygen enriched air. Here’s a great document that covers oxygen specific safety tips like:
• Keep non-typical ignition sources in mind when designing systems for oxygen use.
• In an oxygen-enriched environment, fire chemistry starts to change and materials become easier to ignite.
• Clothes can trap and hold the oxygen enriched atmosphere in the countless air spaces within the weave of the fabric. Hair poses the same problem.
