Epoxy Oilserv Limited is the Oxygen gas Cylinder supplier in Nigeria
Oxygen (O2) is a colourless and odourless gas. It is vital for most life forms on earth. We absorb oxygen through the air we breathe. Medical oxygen is essential in hospital and clinical care for resuscitation and surgery and for various therapies. It is also mixed with nitrogen or helium to create underwater diving mixtures. Epoxy Oilserv is the Oxygen gas supplier in Nigeria. Our Oxygen gas is compressed in cylinders for both industrial and medical applications.
Oxygen is obtained on a commercial scale through the liquefaction and distillation of ambient air at air separation plants. A second purification process may be necessary if ultra-high purity levels are required. High-purity oxygen can also be produced through the electrolysis of water. Membrane techniques are suited to lower-purity requirements.
Industrial Application of Oxygen
Multi-Industry Uses for Oxygen
Oxygen is used with fuel gases in gas welding, gas cutting, oxygen scarfing, flame cleaning, flame hardening, and flame straightening. In gas cutting, the oxygen must be of high quality to ensure a high cutting speed and a clean cut.
The main industrial application of oxygen is combustion. Many materials that do not normally burn in air will burn in oxygen so mixing oxygen with air greatly enhances combustion efficiency in iron and steel, non-ferrous, glass and concrete industries. It is widely combined with a fuel gas for cutting, welding, brazing and glass blowing, offering much higher flame temperatures and thus greater efficiency than just air. With oxy-fuel (Mixture of oxygen and any combustible gas), plasma and laser processes, a jet of gaseous oxygen is used to cut steel. Oxygen is also popular in thermal lancing to drill or cut through materials such as concrete, brick, stone and various metals.
Due to its ability to help stabilize the arc and reduce surface tension, oxygen is used as an ingredient in some shielding gas mixtures. The chemical industry relies on pure oxygen to increase the efficiency of oxidation reactions, for instance. High-purity oxygen is used in laboratories, process-control operations, gas-cooled nuclear reactors, metal analysis instruments, and in semiconductor and optical fiber production.
On the water treatment front, oxygen is an effective way of purifying waste water and treating sewage. Other applications include sealing glass ampoules in the pharmaceutical industry, oxygenation of water for aquaculture, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) mixtures and liquid explosives.
USES AND APPLICATIONS OF OXYGEN GAS AND LIQUID OXYGEN BY INDUSTRY
Aerospace & Aircraft
liquid oxygen is used to prepare and launch many bipropellant vehicles since the early 1960’s. Gaseous oxygen is also used to support rocket fuel combustion.
Transportation Equipment and Automotives
Oxygen is used as a plasma cutting gas, an assist gas for laser cutting, and is sometimes added in small quantities to shielding gases.
In its purest form, oxygen gas is used in many important chemicals such as ethylene oxide and titanium dioxide. It is also used to increase the production capacity of oxidation processes.
Using oxygen in the place of air can increase performance and capital efficiency in many industries and can enable carbon capture processes. It is often used in boilers and process heaters, industrial fermenters and gasification processes to improve productivity.
Glass production industry
An industrial gas with the power to improve productivity, oxygen is used to enhance combustion in glass furnaces, and reduce NOx emissions.
Epoxy Oilserv is a long time provider of USP grade oxygen and bulk oxygen storage equipment to medical facilities, frequently used to aid in the treatment and prevention of hypoxemia and hypoxia.
Metal Production processes
As an industrial gas, oxygen is used to replace or enrich air, ultimately increasing combustion efficiency in both ferrous and non-ferrous metal production.
