OB-30Oxygen Booster OB-30
Oxygen Pressure Pump for Aviation and Other Industries

PN: OB-30 - Without Calibrated Gauges and Certificate
PN: OB-30-Cal - With Calibrated Gauges and Certificat

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 to 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

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. The pump will not run if the 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 the atmosphere that minimizes the likelihood of drive media/oxygen migration
  • Integral air regulator with the pump on/off air toggle switch
  • Maybe nitrogen-powered for remote operation
  • An 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.
  • Fewer man-hours needed to set up and perform a service.
  • Less oxygen inventory required to perform the 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 newly 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 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 the installation of new seals and replacement of other suspects 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.

(Please review operating manual for up to date recertification guidelines)

You Ask. We Help. Your FAQs on the Oxygen Booster.

What is the warranty on these units?
The factory warrants its products to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one (1) year from date of shipment from the factory. Any defect discovered after the warranty period has expired will be deemed to be outside the above coverage. No goods claimed to be under warranty shall be accepted for return unless authorized by the factory beforehand. (Please consult your operating manual for up to date warranty information)

Can you help with recertification?
Yes, we sure can. Please contact us when you are ready for recertification. Your OB-30 ships with special, high strength packaging. It is recommended to save the packaging so you can return the booster in the same packaging for any further certifications.

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.
