About Oxygen Gas
Chemical element Oxygen, having symbol "O" is a highly reactive non metal, and an oxidizing agent that readily forms oxides with most elements. We get Oxygen through the process of fractional distillation of liquid air in a cryogenic air separation unit; a process that separates liquid nitrogen from liquid oxygen.
Oxygen is widely used in various industries in varied applications. However, it is most commonly used for its highly reactive chemical property. Apart from this, Oxygen is used in scientific research, as oxidizing agent and in laboratory equipments. Apart from these industrial uses, oxygen also have various medical applications.
Purity Of Commercial Grade Oxygen Gas
This grade oxygen is the least pure oxygen compared to other grades of oxygen gas. The Oxygen content of commercial grade oxygen comprises of upto 99%. Though, it is widely used in the process of gas cutting, yet, it is not recommended for laboratory or medical purposes.
