Your world is very different from mine. I was
using medical oxygen that was just compressed air
filtered for pollens and moisture. No liquid
oxygen used, just regular air from the
environment. I was surprised that was all the
'oxygen' tanks held.
That is not medical oxygen. Oxygen concentrators remove the nitrogen so
you get more O2. That would be medical oxygen.
On point that has been missed talking about the differences between
welding and medical oxygen. Medical has one important feature: A
When you get an O2 concentrator, they also give you a couple of tanks
for portability, also covered. The best is actually to have liquid
oxygen and a fillable portable. This cost the supplier more and needs
more maintenance and insurance pays the same. Typical fill on a liquid
tank is 7 to 10 days.
A concentrator is electric so it does cost to operate. Liquid makes no
Insurance will pay for tanks for portability, but will not pay if you
call those same tanks as emergency backup for power failure.

Medical oxygen must be at leas 99%pure, no odor. It is also tagged with
the lot so it can be traced. Often, it is from the same tanks as welding
oxygen as ts long as they both meet the minimum requirements, that is OK
In real life, I'd use welding oxygen if I was in need of it to breathe,
but as a supplier to patients, I'd not give it to you unless it had the
right tag. It keeps the lawyers away.
Perhaps, but probably not the accurate one. The reality is that the
purity standard for welding O2 is tighter than that for medical O2.
Ultimately, except for the "analytical grade" all of them come from the
exact same cryo tank of O2 at the filling station.
It's clear that homeguy is raising points and bring up facts and logic
that you either won't or can't refute in a clear and rational way, and
it seems to upset you.
I suggest you chill out and relax and just take it all in as our
country, our economy and way of life disintigrates in front of our eyes.

He's a clueless troll with a serious penis envy directed at the USA.
As nestork correctly pointed out, there are all kinds of real
attrocities going on in the world today. North Korea, Central African
Republic, Syria, Putin gobbling up the Ukraine. Yet all this dope
drones on about in one OT post after another is the USA?
