Control hazards to protect lives and property with the 2011 NFPA 53: Recommended Practice on Materials, Equipment, and Systems Used in Oxygen-Enriched Atmospheres.

The 2011 NFPA 53 is your single-source for the latest criteria for the safe use of oxygen (liquid/gaseous) and the design of systems for use in oxygen and oxygen-enriched atmospheres (OEAs). Information is provided for the selection of materials, components, and design criteria that can be used safely in oxygen and OEAs.

Applications of NFPA 53 include:

  • Gas and compressed air supplies
  • Spaceflight operations
  • Industrial processes
  • Welding applications
  • Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA)
  • Self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA)
  • Underwater tunneling and caisson work
  • Commercial and military aviation

This document also provides actual reports of fire experience in OEAs. (Softbound, 54 pp., 2011)
