Oxygen

Oxygen has a concentration in the air that we breathe by about 21% by volume.

Production:

Oxygen is produced by air separation process

Storage and transport:

In liquid form, oxygen is stored in tanks and transported to customers by tanker lorries and cryogenic iso-containers. Messer has its own fleet of tank lorries, iso-containers and storage tanks ready to be used to supply your needs

Health and Safety:

At room temperature, Oxygen is a colourless and odourless gas. Oxygen is an oxidizing gas. At a temperature of -183 ° C, the oxygen liquefies. At -218.9 ° C, it becomes solid. At atmospheric pressure, liquid oxygen occupies a volume 854 times smaller than in gaseous form. This is why large quantities of oxygen are transported and stored in liquid cryogenic form. Due to its characteristics, special safety instructions must be observed when handling oxygen.

Industrial processes applications:

The most important feature of oxygen is its reactivity. There are few elements with which oxygen does not react. Oxidation and combustion processes occur much more rapidly in an oxygen-enriched atmosphere than in air. Thus, oxygen is indispensable in a large number of industrial applications. In addition, oxygen is not only essential for the metabolism of many organisms, but it is also soluble in water. As a result, it is used for many applications in the fields of water treatment and the environment.
