Electrolytic Oxygen?


I want to safely and cheaply raise the oxygen level in my room from the natural %20 to around %50 like the casinos do.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Oxygen Generators on Ebay

You too can "Flame On!!"

Or just have a historical reenactment of the Apollo 1 disaster. :o

You must have missed the part whare I said cheap, I already searched ebay before making this thread.

I do not plan on getting the concentration high enough to cause any problems.

Any real chemists left on this site willing to guide a lazy noob?

That contradicts your original statement:

Which actually is self-contradictory as concentrations of oxygen above 30% lead to fierce fires, about 35% wet plant matter will burn. At 50% O2 it would be rather difficult to extinguish any fire.

The main methods of producing oxygen enriched air use semi-permeable membranes or pressure swing absorption., as these are the most efficient on a medium scale. Cheap you ain't going to get, unless you stumble over a used unit.

We don't have much use for LAZY noob Punks here.

If you can be bothered to actually READ through ALL the links you are given, you might learn something.
