Abstract : C-130J Program Office requested a study to determine if long breathing hoses (18 feet, 24 feet, and 30 feet) would meet the breathing resistance standards noted in Air Standardization Coordinating Committee (ASCC) Air Standard 61/101/6A, Minimum Physiological Requirements for Aircrew Demand Breathing Systems. The aircraft oxygen system, including CRU-73 oxygen regulator and MBU-20/P oxygen mask, was setup at the On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB OH. The mask pressure data were compared to the mask pressure requirements for breathing resistance in the Air Standard. The study revealed the long breathing hose configurations did not provide acceptable breathing resistance in a significant majority of test conditions.
