Abstract:

The process of generating and using oxygen, as applied to military procedure, has been developed by the Chemical Engineering Division NDRC. Three categories of this process are outlined, i.e., the development of compact, lightweight, portable units for separating oxygen from air the development of equipment for supplying oxygen for specialized uses, such as aircraft breathing, and of instruments for testing the oxygen intended for the specialized uses and the generation of oxygen aboard submarines for use as a secondary fuel and the operation of internal combustion engines while the vessels are submerged. The development of the component parts of several alternative forms of apparatus for generating oxygen and charging cylinders are discussed in great detail.
