Applications and uses
Widely used with a fuel gas for cutting, welding, brazing and soldering. The use of
oxygen increases the flame temperature.
In oxy-cutting, an oxy-fuel flame preheats the material to its ignition temperature. The
oxygen is then triggered generating more heat and melting the material. The material
in contact with the oxygen jet is oxidised, creating metallic slag which is blown from
the cut, allowing more material to react with the oxygen.
Thermal lancing oxygen is used in conjunction with the steel lance to create a high-
temperature melting process capable of drilling or cutting through materials such as
concrete, brick, stone and most metals.
Used as an assist gas in lasers for cutting mild steel.
Standard PTFE tape contains oil; oxygen reacts violently with oil and may
spontaneously burn with an explosive force.
