Doc. 197/21Liquid Air

Liquid air has properties that differ from those of other cryogenic liquids, such as liquid oxygen or liquid nitrogen, and which can give rise to specific safety hazards.

EIGA has therefore recognised the need for a publication addressing safety in production, storage, distribution, transportation and use of liquid air. It is intended to explain the specific nature of this two-component product and the need for expert involvement in all aspects of production and use of liquid air. General guidelines for the application of liquid air are also covered, but it is not the intention of this publication to review specific applications.
