Identify potential combustible materials in oxygen-enriched atmospheres

Control Measure Knowledge

Elevated oxygen levels will result in the increased potential of combustible materials burning. Direct contact with liquid oxygen can also result in the ignition of materials that would not typically be considered as combustible (e.g. carbon and stainless steel, aluminium and Teflon). Organic materials may also react explosively in the presence of sufficiently high concentrations of oxygen.
