EFFECT OF MOISTURE IN GASEOUS AIRCRAFT OXYGEN SYSTEMS OPERATING AT LOW TEMPERATURES
AEROSPACE MEDICAL RESEARCH LABS WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
An investigation of a typical aircraft oxygen system was accomplished to determine the physical conditions that may cause water to accumulate in them and the extent and nature of malfunctions that could be induced by freezing of water in the system under simulated flight conditions. Malfunction of the system was demonstrated under conditions which could occur in aircraft oxygen systems. The malfunction was limited to the high-pressure reducer becoming partially or completely blocked. Author
