Oxygen is an odorless, colorless, and reactive gas. Oxygen is critical to life itself. It also plays a fundamental role in combustion and oxidation reactions. It is instrumental in a wide variety of applications ranging from healthcare, metal production and fabrication, to drinking and wastewater treatment.

What are safety hazards associated when working with liquid or gaseous oxygen?

Working in an environment with too much or too little oxygen is hazardous. An oxygen enriched atmosphere significantly increases the risk of fire or explosion. An oxygen deficient atmosphere increases the risk of asphyxiation. One critical safeguard when working with oxygen is the use of monitors to detect an oxygen enriched or deficient atmosphere.  

Safety is a core value and embedded in everything we do at Messer. We are committed to the safe use of our products and set working standards that protect the safety and health of our customers, our people, and our communities. Here are some resources to find out more information on oxygen safety:

“OXIPYR LEAF burners on our furnace have resulted in significant improvements in our operations and a reduction of CO2 emissions by over 15%. Messer's team was extremely helpful in training our operators on how to best use the new technology, allowing us to achieve our production targets.”
Plant Manager, Current Commercial Aluminum Customer
"To meet the increasing demand for our copper products, we needed to improve refractory life on our Melting Furnace. Working with Messer was a collaborative process. From Messer’s assistance with burner repositioning, equipment tuning, melting know-how, and process optimization, we’ve seen a significant improvement in refractory life and daily operations."
Ray Ribar, Senior Process Engineer, Hussey Copper
“I’ve never seen approvals that quickly – ever. The whole project was approved within a week... [Installing a new bulk medical oxygen station] would’ve taken months to a year in a normal situation. [Messer was] provided the opportunity to help a lot of people and they were thrilled about it. It was a huge win all around.”
Virtair owner, Will Wasserman

By replacing inert nitrogen with combustible oxygen, Messer’s proprietary OXIPYR® oxy fuel solutions can boost production, reduce CO2 and NOx emissions and save energy. OXIPYR LEAF burners boost melt rates by up to 40% with oxygen instead of air-fuel. The enhanced control gives operators the ability to use oxygen only when they need it.

Ozone-based applications for water treatment, mineral and pulp bleaching, and NOx removal continue to proliferate, but traditional oxygen-ozone conversion processes are inefficient, converting only a small percentage of the oxygen input. Messer’s OXYCYLE™ solution can help, recovering up to 60% of the oxygen used in ozone generation.
