A new compilation from ASTM International includes 23 standards that address fire hazards in oxygen systems, including safe practices in design, materials selection, storage, handling and operations.

The resource is intended for those involved in the production or use of liquid or gaseous oxygen or oxygen-enriched gas mixtures. Among those that could benefit, according to the W. Conshohocken, Pa.-based organization, are engineers, scientists, technicians, purchasing agents, plant managers and operators, safety professionals, and those who supply, design, or manufacture hardware for oxygen services.

According to ASTM, it is a suitable companion to theASTM Manual on Safe Use of Oxygen and Oxygen Systems: Handbook for Design, Operation, and Maintenance, 2nd Edition (Manual 36). To order the CD, search www.astm.org for stock number OXYGENCD10 or call (610) 832-9585.
