Oxygen

A requirement for most life on earth, Oxygen (O) is one of our atmosphere’s most plentiful elements. A particularly reactive gas, oxygen easily binds to a large variety of elements and compounds to form oxides, requiring inert gases to displace it or prevent contact with surfaces and other gases.

Oxygen’s usefulness stretches across a wide range of industries. In hospitals, clinics, and other health and homecare practices, oxygen is used in resuscitation, surgery, and a variety of therapies to promote better quality of life. In a radically different use, the industrial environment uses oxygen for its combustion properties – making flames hotter and the cutting and braising of metal easier and more efficient. To better serve your needs, RMA sells oxygen at a variety of purity levels and with a variety of systems.

The process for converting iron ore to steel uses Oxygen to combine with a carbon and sulfur, producing carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide.

When Hydrogen and Oxygen react, they produce a great amount of energy, providing thrust for rockets to reach escape velocity.
