Technical Reports (TR)
A method for estimating the offsite risks from bulk storage of liquefied oxygen. Revision 1: 2013
Describes the hazards from exposure to oxygen enriched air, if so exposed, the chance of being seriously injured, a method for estimating the evaporation of liquid oxygen and how the oxygen vapour disperses, and the chance of a large spill occurring. Originally published in 1984, Revision 1 updated the structure and format of the document but did not change the technical content.
The probability of fatality in oxygen enriched atmospheres due to spillage of liquid oxygen. Revision 1: 2013
Provides information on the harmful effects of oxygen releases on personnel, and includes probability data based on lower rates of smoking among people at work. Originally published in 1999, Revision 1 updated the structure and format of the document but did not change the technical content.
Replacement substances for the cleaning of oxygen system components. Revision 1: 2015
The Montreal Protocol and EU Council Regulation 3093/94 have made the traditionally-used substances for oxygen cleaning unacceptable. The Ministry of Defence therefore commissioned a study by South Bank University into alternative methods of oxygen cleaning. This report is the outcome of that study and is being published by BCGA on behalf of MoD. This publication has been approved within the BCGA for continued availability, despite no formal review of its content being undertaken.
