Seventeen peer-reviewed papers cover the latest research on the ignition and combustion of metals and non-metals, oxygen compatibility of components and systems, analysis of ignition and combustion, failure analysis and safety. It includes aerospace, military, scuba diving, and industrial oxygen applications.
Development of safe oxygen systems
Ignition mechanisms within oxygen systems and how to avoid them
Specific hazards that exist with the oxygen mixture breathed by divers in the scuba industry
Issues related to oxygen system level safety
Issues related to oxygen safety in breathing systems
Detailed investigations and discussions related to the burn curves that have been generated for metals that are burning in a standard test fixture
This new publication is a valuable resource for professionals in the air separation industries, oxygen manufacturers, manufacturers of materials intended for oxygen service, and users of oxygen and oxygen-enriched atmospheres, including aerospace, medical, industrial gases, chemical processing, steel and metals refining, as well as to military, commercial or recreational diving.
