Subject: Oil-Pumped VS Water-Pumped Gases


I am looking for a reference that I can get on a snowy Sunday (so hopefully online!) that lists 'oil-pumped' gases and 'water-pumped' gases.  From what I have found online (lab procedures, that sort of thing) nitrogen appears to be in the first category and (for obvious reasons) oxygen in the latter, but if I could find something authoritative from a manufacturer's technical bulletin or something along those lines that would be terrific.  A search of the CGA's Handbook of Compressed Gases didn't come up with a list...

Many thanks,
Ma rgaret
