Blog Post created by lmontville Employee on Jun 20, 2015

NFPA 53, Recommended Practice on Materials, Equipment, and Systems used in Oxygen-Enriched Atmospheres, is a Fall 2015 document and the committee is currently being balloted on the Second Draft. One of the revisions includes an expanded table of Oxygen Index, Autoignition Temperature, and Heat of Combustion data for nonmetallic materials used in oxygen service.  Keep an eye out for the Second Draft report, coming out soon.


In the meantime, check out the medical oxygen fact sheet and safety tips on the NFPA website.
