It is hauled frequently; hospitals, certain industrial processes use it and some we would be surprised by. It a hazardous cargo for at least two reasons: 1) really cold (man from lox is a eye opener from my Navy days) and 2) an oxidizer (duh?!). The reason #2 is pretty hazardous is if it leaks on to any petroleum based material and there is any "heat" (we talking the pressure of a boot stomping on the ground or a warm tire and RAPID oxidization may occur in the form of a major BOOM! A simple cigarette can become a torch if exposed to the vent waste.

That said, it has to get to its destination some way and trucks haul it. It is safe unless you are careless and don't follow procedures or there is an accident. Same can be said for gasoline, diesel, AVGAS or jet fuel.

As an experienced former tanker yanker I will recommend you get experienced with a regular tank trailer and hazardous materials before hauling anything else. I say it because hazardous materials laws and regulations vary from product to product and can be very confusing at times. That is if you want to pursue hauling liquid oxygen.

You know more about the stuff than the rest of us combined, more than likely.confused.gif Understand being around a vent and breathing deeply will make a hangover go away pretty quick. Gotta watch that it doesn't frost your nasal hairs! rofl-3.gif

Any of you other old f#$ts on here remember Apollo 1? Those guys were in that capsule in a pure O2 environment and one spark set off an inferno. After that, they stopped pressurizing space craft with pure O2.

I've seen it hauled. I used to see it when I was around Savannah.
