Knowing how to properly select materials and handle products for oxygen service is critical. The rigorous demands for safety and quality control are especially important as the risk of combustion and fire are greatly increased when dealing with oxygen enriched systems. In this TechTalk webinar presented by Swagelok's senior material scientist, Dr. Bob Bianco, on Thursday, April 8th at 11 am, you will learn about the hazards and solutions when dealing with oxygen systems and service, as well as the various Swagelok and third-party products available for use with them.
A short Q&A will available the end of this 30-minute webinar.
Below is a short summary of topics that will be addressed during the webinar.
