Abstract:

The regulators submitted by Robertshaw Fulton Controls Company were picked at random from production samples of oxygen breathing regulators model 2867A1B and B1. In accordance with request contained in BUAER 1tr Aer-AE-51119 of 14 March 1955, these regulators were submitted for evaluation and determination of their compliance with the performance requirements. The results of testing indicate that the regulators do not fully meet the performance requirements with respect to the added oxygen characteristics. This laboratory has recommended that the regulators be considered as unsatisfactory for service use. In addition it is suggested that the manufacturer review his inspection test procedures relative to the inspection testing of added oxygen requirements for the regulators. Author
