Aviation Breathing Oxygen Cylinder Filling

Aviation Breathing Oxygen Cylinder Filling

Our client, a major International Airline wished to take control of their Aviation Breathing Oxygen Cylinder Filling requirements by developing a market leading Breathing Oxygen cylinder filling plant.

Whilst the client had extensive experience in the airline technology requirements, they had limited knowledge / experience in the area of filling gas cylinders.

The technology adopted was automatic cylinder filling utilising pressure / temperature compensation technique including proportional valve control (“fine fill”) to ensure accurate, repeatable fills and reduced heat of compression, along with minimal operator involvement.

In addition, high levels of safety, quality, reliability and productivity were key drivers in within the project scope.

We, the IGPH Group delivered a full turnkey solution comprising, mechanical, electrical and process design and engineering, HAZOP safety studies, project management, installation, commissioning and training.

The equipment included within the project comprised; liquid vessel, cryogenic reciprocating pump and pump control panel, ambient air vaporiser, line safety panel, filling stations, fully automatic Breathing Oxygen Cylinder Filling module and AiFill control system including SCADA for remote support.
