High Purity Industrial Oxygen Service For Laser Cutting

High Purity Industrial Oxygen Service For Laser Cutting

While oxygen is in-and-of itself not flammable or explosive (except under compression), it acts as a combustion
accelerator – meaning that it can turn even a tiny discharge into a raging inferno. For reasons that are apparent, this
can be an unacceptable risk in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Other non flammable materials, including metal shavings or rust, danger causing injury or aggravation to persons as will
probably aspirate any stuff stirred up from a decompressing oxygen tank using an oxygen feed.

In the aerospace business cleaned oxygen systems are even more dangerous. In a pressurized environment, such as the
cabin of an airplane, a small discharge resulting from inferior oxygen cleaning can have instantaneous and catastrophic
effect, putting the entire aircraft in danger.

For What Do You Need Oxygen Cleaning?

For these reasons, it is consistently proposed that any and all oxygen system components be properly maintained

  • Valves & Fittings
  • Pipes, Tubes, & Hoses
  • Assemblies
  • Heater Coils
  • Tanks & Vessels
  • Housings
  • Gages

Subpar oxygen cleaning is never worth the very real and imminent risk it poses to living organisms.

Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.

The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A typical commercial laser for cutting materials would involve a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material.

The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Industrial laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping materials. (read more at
