Abstract:

In response to reference 1, Navy Experimental Dividing Unit NEDU tested the RIX Model 4N3BG-2.2 High Pressure Oxygen Compressor from 5 October to 17 October 1990. The purpose of this test was to determine if the equipment was suitable for use by the United States navy USN diving community and if so, added to the Approved for Navy Use ANU Procurement List. The RIX Model 4N BG- 2.2 met manufacturers specifications for quantity of gas transferred with a quality which met or exceeded purity standards in reference 2. The design and engineering was determined to be adequate. The RIX Model 4N BG-2.2 Compressor is considered suitable for USN requirements for compressors of this size and type.
