The most common occurrence of oxygen in nature is in the form of a colorless gas. It is the life sustaining element found on earth with atomic number 8 and one of the basic chemicals with symbol O. Oxygen is a highly reactive oxidizing agent and nonmetal because it readily forms oxides with many compounds and other elements. It constitutes 21% of the earth’s atmosphere. The common commercial method of preparing almost 99% pure oxygen oxygen is air separation by vaccum swing adsorption process or cryogenic distillation process. Electrolysis of water is another method of producing pure oxygen but it is not economical for large volume of production.
Oxygen is available in gas cylinders, spray cans and containers etc. The base containers for liquid oxygen are available in various quantities varying from 31 to 41 litres. The oxygen market contributes to the growth of various related markets as well such as air-oxygen blenders, medical oxygen generators, stationary and portable oxygen concentrators.
