aerox® Provides High Flow Oxygen Solutions

April 6, 2009  By Administrator

oxygenApril 6, 2009 – At sea level, the atmosphere contains 21% oxygen. As you go up in altitude, (ambient pressure, and therefore the partial pressure of ambient oxygen, decreases), requiring the use of supplemental Oxygen.


Historically, aircraft operators requiring high oxygen flow rates have had few choices in regulators, and those choices came with long delivery lead times. To solve the problem aerox® designed and added the High Flow Remote Regulator to its regulator line-up, stocked and ready for immediate delivery.

When asked why aerox® designed the High Flow Remote Regulator, Lloyd Boston, president of aerox® said “customer requests indicated that there was a significant need for this specialized regulator. It is capable of providing sufficient oxygen flow rates for 12 or more occupants aboard an aircraft. When it comes to operating respirators and other medical equipment aboard an aeromedical aircraft, only a regulator designed for the task has the ability to supply the high flow rates and pressures required regardless of the supply pressure from the source cylinder. The use of Diluter Demand Masks is another application that requires unusually high flow rates. The development of this Specialty Regulator was truly customer based.”

Demanding work environments is where the High Flow Remote Regulator shines. The Outlet specifications tell it all:

Inlet pressure
Outlet flow
End pressure
250 psi
200LPM +/- 10%
70 psi +/- 10 psi
1850 psi 300LPM +/- 10%
70 psi +/- 10 psi

Whether your application requires ambient or overboard discharge, the High Flow Remote Regulator will work for you.
