What are Applications of High Purity Oxygen Plants?

1. Introduction

Oxygen is a chemical element, the lightest and least reactive of the elements. It is also a well-known element of oxygen. In its purest form, oxygen is a colorless gas that has many uses: for example, as an oxidizing agent for steelmaking (as well as for various synthesis processes), in airbags, in rocket fuel and space suits, and more recently in medical applications for prosthetic limbs.
Oxygen is also used in certain types of biology to grow plants and animals. However, this type of oxygen has shortcomings compared to pure oxygen from water or air. It cannot be absorbed by most living organisms because it can be easily oxidized by enzymes present within their cells; therefore it must be delivered by an external source such as sunlight or a chemical reaction involving O 2 or CO 2.

2. What are High Purity Oxygen Plants?

While oxygen is a crucial element in many aspects of life, it is also critical to many processes that are messy and energy intensive. One of the most common uses for oxygen is for the production of hydrogen. The process for producing hydrogen involves electrolysis in which a solution of water and an electrolyte (typically a catalyst) are brought together to produce an electric current.
The current produced by this process is split into two streams: one stream consists of hydrogen and the other stream contains oxygen. In this way, each stream can be used on its own or mixed together to produce either more pure or mixed-up streams. This process requires some sort of separation device that allows pure streams to be generated (or at least some stream with low concentration).
A high-purity oxygen plant or HSOP has been identified as a single point where all three streams can be separated and purified. This provides a truly clean end product: a liquid mixture that is free from impurities such as carbon dioxide, silica, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, etc., but which still contains enough oxygen to fulfill its primary role as an oxidizer (oxygenating the liquid).
Here are some common examples of applications in which high purity oxygen plants have been implemented:
• hydroelectricity – creating pure steam for generating electricity;
• steel making – using pure steel instead of pig iron;
• plant-based medicine – using high purity hydrogen instead of ordinary hydrogen chloride;
• electronics – using pure silver instead of silver cyanide;
• electrical machinery – using zinc instead of zinc cyanide;
• thermoelectricity -using molybdenum instead of molybdenum disulfide (a low-cost form); and
• petrochemical refining – using molybdenum disulfide instead of oleum (a less cost-effective alternative).
3. Applications of High Purity Oxygen Plants
It is a common observation that we see a lot of innovation in the clean tech sector (biofuel, pollution control, etc.). But it isn’t a surprise that the invention of high-purity oxygen plants (HPO) had a big influence on these developments.
In the early 1900s, the world realized that air pollution was getting worse and decided to do something about it. In particular, they began to use high-purity oxygen (HPO) as an alternative to ordinary air. These were not new machines, but rather brand new ways of producing oxygen.
In fact, they already existed in many forms: power plants and manufacturing plants used them as an alternative fuel source; medical facilities used them to purify the blood; and so on. However, until then there had been no way of making them portable or flexible enough for one-off applications.
The first application of HPOs took place in 1951 at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington State where it was used to purify water from the Great Salt Lake (also known as the Salton Sea) . After that, HPOs spread worldwide and soon became indispensable in many fields — from pharmaceuticals and food production to aerospace and electronics.

4. The machinery manufacturing industry

The machinery manufacturing industry is a very important market in which oxygen requirement is one of the key factors. Oxygen demand in this industry is extremely high, which requires highly purified oxygen and a continuous supply of oxygen for the production process. In the present study, it is found that high-purity oxygen plants can satisfy all the requirements of this industry; and it can be applied not only to machinery manufacturing but also to other fields in which oxygen requirement is very high, such as pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

5. The aerospace industry

High purity oxygen plants (HPOPs) are very technically complex systems, including chemical, mechanical and electrical components. These systems are installed in a combustion chamber, which is typically a metal cylinder surrounded by insulation. The combustion chamber can be made of copper or some other metal oxide. The metal oxide consists of aluminum oxide mixed with other oxides, like molybdenum dioxide (MoO2), or boron dioxide (B2O3). High-purity oxygen plants are used for the production of oxygen; however, the process also includes the decomposition of carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen gas (H2), and fluorine gas (F+).
High Purity Oxygen Plants can be used for several purposes:

1. Oxygenates and HFCs

  • Oxygenates are essential substances that contain oxygen to produce energy. They can be produced by high-temperature electrolysis or by high-pressure electrolysis.
  • HFCs are compounds containing one or more hydrocarbon molecules that can be made by high-temperature electrolysis or by high-pressure electrolysis.

2. CO2 Separation and Oxidation
