This application can be very dangerous. Oxygen in a pure form will
ignite if it comes in contact with a hydrocarbon oil, grease etc...
Since we generally use oil and Buna N elastomers in our pumps, certain
precautions need to be addressed.
The pumps should be ordered with explosion proof motors and should be
prepared for oxygen use and filled with a oxygen compatible lubricant. The pumps need to be
especially prepared for this application. Care should be taken to
use silicone elastomers and thread sealants approved for use in oxygen
