G-4.9: Safe Use of Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers for Producing Pressurized Oxygen
This publication addresses BAHXs used for boiling product oxygen at elevated pressures. The oxygen enters the BAHX as a subcooled liquid (or supercritical fluid) and leaves as a superheated vapor. Other BAHX uses in oxygen applications are not addressed, although incidents involving aluminum in oxygen service are discussed.

This publication contains a summary of current knowledge and industrial practices used in the safe application of BAHXs for the boiling of oxygen at elevated pressures.

This publication is not intended to be a mandatory standard. It is based upon the combined experimental work, operating experience, and design practices of major producers and operators of air separation plants.
