Liquid and gaseous oxygen O2
Liquid oxygen is one of the physical forms of oxygen gas that is found in soft and pale blue color and has various applications in industries including medicine, laboratory and industry. Also, this substance is used in the aerospace industry as an oxidizing agent for spacecraft engines. The temperature of oxygen condensate reaches minus 182 degrees Celsius.
The oxygen product produced in the Parsia Gas complex can be ordered with real-time quality control with the specifications in the table above. If other percentages of purity are needed, it will be possible to provide it in the shortest possible time.
Oxygen is one of the second main elements in the atmosphere, which makes up about 20.8% of the atmosphere. Liquid oxygen is also found in pale blue color and is very cold. Oxygen is not flammable, but it is a very strong oxidizer. As you know, oxygen is one of the vital elements for living organisms on earth.
In terms of reactivity, it can be said that oxygen reacts with all organic substances and different metals and then creates an oxide substance. If you expose substances that burn in air to high purity oxygen, these substances will burn more intensely. The equipment that is placed in the service and handling of oxygen must be cleaned precisely and the systems must be made of materials that have a high ignition temperature and do not react if they come into contact with oxygen during service.
Oxygen is a strong oxidant that easily forms oxides with most elements as well as with other compounds. Elements that make up oxides make up almost half of the earth’s crust. The presence of oxygen enables combustion.
Oxygen, odorless and tasteless, with high purity (99.5%) is used as an oxide compound to support cutting operations. Oxygen may be added in controlled amounts to GMAW shielding gases and is also used as a plasma cutting gas (with hafnium electrodes) on steel.
Oxygen is constantly renewed in the Earth’s atmosphere by photosynthesis, which uses the energy of sunlight to produce oxygen from water and carbon dioxide. Oxygen must be constantly compensated by the photosynthetic activity of living organisms to remain a free element in the air. Another (allotrope) form of oxygen, ozone (O3), strongly absorbs UV radiation, and the high-altitude ozone layer helps protect the biosphere from UV radiation. However, surface-level ozone is a byproduct of smog and thus a pollutant.
Common applications of oxygen include the production of steel, plastics and textiles, turning, welding and cutting of steel and other metals, rocket fuel, oxygen therapy and breathing systems in aircraft, submarines, spacecraft and diving.
Oxygen gas is one of the vital and essential elements of the earth, but if you are wondering how this gas is produced, we must say that the earth’s atmosphere was not always full of oxygen gas. In the past, the earth’s atmosphere consisted of carbon dioxide and other gases. The atmosphere of the earth was very similar to the planets Mars and Venus.
Most people believe that the growth and emergence of plants and trees caused more oxygen gas to be made during the process of photosynthesis, but there is also a theory that the creation of oxygen from carbon dioxide gas happened by ultraviolet light. Also, the phytoplanktons that live in the seas and carry out the process of photosynthesis produce a lot of oxygen.
Oxygen gas is a colorless and odorless gas, and its solid and liquid forms are pale blue in color, and in the mentioned states, this substance has strong paramagnetic properties. Liquid oxygen is often made by fractional distillation of liquid air.

Dangers of oxygen gas
Liquid oxygen is one of the three physical forms of oxygen gas, which is available in pale blue color and is used in various industries. We should also say that liquid oxygen is one of the cryogenic gases, and cryogenic gases are gases that are in liquid form and their boiling temperature is minus 90 degrees Celsius under normal conditions.
Due to its high difference between the surrounding environment, this liquid should be isolated from the surrounding environment even in winter, and this issue is very important.
Liquid oxygen has many applications, for example, this substance is used as an oxidizing fuel in spacecraft, shuttles, space shuttles, rockets, Apollos, spaceships, etc., in this way, this substance is combined with liquid hydrogen and Kerosene plays the role of stimulant and booster. Liquid oxygen is also known as an industrial gas in the industry, which has many uses, and it is also widely used in medical fields and hospitals.
