Oxygen Industrial Gas
BOC oxygen is typically supplied with a purity of 99.5% or higher. Colourless and odourless. Does not burn, but supports and accelerates combustion.
- Used with a fuel gas for cutting, welding, brazing and soldering.
- The use of oxygen gives higher flame temperatures than if air is used.
- In plasma and laser cutting steel, an arc or a laser beam is used to heat the steel to its ignition temperature.
- Oxygen is then used in the same way as with oxygen cutting to create an exothermic reaction and to blow away any metal oxide or slag
