    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.

    Topics cover:
    • 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.
