General Description

  • 80 psi drive pressure produces 2,200 psi oxygen pressure
  • Shop air or nitrogen powered for use in and around the hanger

Gas bottles only supply enough gas until the system equalizes. Sometimes there may be 1000psig of unused gas. Don't give back the product you have already paid for. By using our Oxygen Booster, oxygen bottles can know be pumped down to 250 psig. Cost savings on gas pays for the booster. Oxygen can be transferred to another low pressure bottle or directly into the aircraft. The unit is designed to be mounted on a wall, bench or on a portable bottle cart, so it can be taken to the aircraft. Operates by shop air or an optional nitrogen drive. Bottle Regulator on inlet gas recommended.

Designed for Maximum Safety

  • Oxygen wetted components are principally brass – one of the best materials for oxygen service surpassing materials such as stainless steel for ignition resistance in a pure oxygen environment
  • All oxygen wetted parts have been cleaned per Spec. ARP 1176
  • Other materials are optimized for oxygen service including a Monel™ shaft for 2013 models and in 2005 model recertified units

Features

  • No inlet valve. Air regulator or lubricator required
  • A coalescing drive filter is supplied and should be installed as near as possible to the drive inlet
  • Dual 10 micron filters are included for the oxygen in and oxygen out ports
  • Integral cut-in and cut-out pressure switches. Pump will not run if oxygen inlet pressure is below 250 psi or oxygen outlet pressure is above 2,400 psi
  • Polymeric seals and bearings for long life and high efficiency
  • Sparkless operation
  • To preclude drive supply from contaminating oxygen, twin rod seals are supplied with a vent to atmosphere that minimizes the likelihood of drive media/oxygen migration
  • Integral air regulator with pump on/off air toggle switch
  • May be nitrogen-powered for remote operation
  • Excessive flow shut-off valve is supplied loose to mitigate risk/damage in the unlikely event of an ignition incident or opening of the oxygen bottle too quickly. This valve is supplied with newer models, available for retrofit for older models or units returned for recertification.

Top Booster Benefits

  • More efficient usage of low-pressure oxygen bottles.
  • Less man hours needed to set up and perform a service.
  • Less oxygen inventory required to perform same job as a cascade system.

Specifications

  • Dimensions: 15" long x 9.4" high x 8.9" wide, 45 lbs. complete
  • Input & output hoses required: stainless steel/Teflon -4 JIC rated to 3,000 psi
  • Booster output rating: 2,200 psig
  • Oxygen booster ratio: 30:1

Application Info

The new redesigned OB-30 Oxygen Booster with several new components and material upgrades in order to reduce the risks associated with refilling aviation breathing bottles. The redesigned OB-30 Oxygen Booster is now enhanced with a coalescing filter to reduce contamination from compressor oil - a frequent occurrence in compressed air systems. In addition, where feasible nonflammable brass parts have replaced aluminum and stainless steel components, which can be combustible in oxygen-enriched environments.
Recertification Info
The OB-30 must be inspected prior to each use. If, after conducting the OB-30 inspection, it is believed it may have been compromised with suspect components or sub-optimal operational or maintenance practices it must be returned for a complete inspection, cleaning and recertification. Recertification is also required for any OB-30 that has been in service for 1500 hours or two years since its last factory certification, whichever occurs first.

More on Recertification
As indicated in the OB-30 Operating & Maintenance Manual ("Manual"), the OB-30 is required to be recertified every two years or 1500 hours of service, whichever occurs first. Failure to follow the Manual's instructions including the recertification requirements increases the risk of contamination that can act as a source of dangerous ignition of the oxygen in the flow stream. The IDI recertification process includes installation of new seals and replacement of other suspect or damaged components along with a complete cleaning of oxygen wetted parts. In addition, older OB-30's may be upgraded, if needed, with the latest enhancements.

All recertified OB-30 boosters will be returned with a new product warranty. Because of the inherent risks associated with the use of pressurized oxygen systems, continued use of the OB-30 without recertification and/or improper operation or maintenance could result in severe property damage, serious injury, and/or death.

Is there any preventative maintenance that needs to be completed on the booster?
All maintenance performed on the OB-30 oxygen booster shall be conducted in accordance with all applicable codes governing the handling, operation, installation and troubleshooting for high- pressure O2 operation. Maintenance is to only be done by qualified persons. Please review your manual for the Preventative Maintenance Schedule.

Do I have to use shop air to power this pump?
You can use either shop air or a nitrogen bottle to power the oxygen booster.

What kind of filters are installed on this unit?
There are dual 10 micron filters that are included for the oxygen in and out parts.

Can I mount this booster on my own oxygen cart?
This booster is adaptable to most 3 and 4 bottle maintenance oxygen carts.

Does this booster have any ratings?
This booster is CE rated and all oxygen wetted parts have been cleaned per Spec. ARP 1176.

The oxygen booster was delivered promptly. A brand new unit with everything needed in the box. Full instructions came with the unit as well as a link to view a very informational tutorial online. The booster has worked flawlessly since we got it. I have seen this same model used in large maintenance facilities. I have every reason to believe that our unit will last for a long time.
