Wall Outlet – Air

The Air Gas Delivery System provides supplemental air and prescribed flow rates to patients in multiple healthcare settings, i.e. hospitals; air ambulances, etc. It is designed to be installed into a gaseous air supply system with an inlet pressure of 50 psi. The Air Gas Delivery System will provide controlled flow rates of 0.25 to 25 LPM. Multiple Outlet Fitting options are available based on operator preference and market or regional connection standards.

Wall Outlet – Oxygen

The Oxygen Gas Delivery System provides supplemental oxygen and prescribed flow rates to patients in multiple healthcare settings, i.e. hospitals; air ambulances, etc. It is designed to be installed into a gaseous oxygen supply system with an inlet pressure of 50 psi. The Oxygen Gas Delivery System will provide controlled flow rates of 0.25 to 25 LPM. Multiple Outlet Fitting options are available based on operator preference and market or regional connection standards.

LM-100J

The LM-100J control yoke is identical to that of the C-130J. This system handles pitch and roll flight control, as well as the control of various aircraft systems such as pitch trim, communications and other on-board avionics.

ERGONOMIC COLLECTIVE GRIP

The Ergonomic Collective Grip has a unique shape that provides the optimum hand position for long-range comfort, reducing fatigue during flight.  The patent-pending design incorporates additional switches to eliminate hand repositioning or dual seat inputs.

The new Ergonomic Collective Grip enables pilots to fly the aircraft while maintaining control of all electronic switch functions.

Essex developed the Ergonomic Collective Grip for the UH-60 Black Hawk with eight different switches, including a Cursor Slew Switch and HUD Switch, which are not typically available on a collective grip.

The Ergonomic Collective Grip can be modified to fit any rotary platform and is particularly suited to those applications that require a wide range of functionality.  Switches can be changed, as needed, to include uses such as weapon or sensor control.

500 GALLON LOX TRAILER

The 500 Gallon LOX Trailer is a mobile liquid oxygen storage tank assembly.  Designed for the transport and storage of LOX at airbases and military installations, the 500 Gallon LOX Trailer provides a logistics solution for flight line LOX requirements.

The 500 Gallon LOX Trailer can be used with all Essex LOX Converters, BMOS, BMOS-FS, MMOS, NPTLOX, PTLOX and 50 Gallon LOX Carts.

A 500 Gallon LIN Trailer for the transport and storage of liquid nitrogen is also available.

Both 500 Gallon Trailers are qualified to Air Force PD13WRGRVEA05 and tested to MIL-STD-810.

SPLIT FLAPPER FUEL VALVE

The Split Flapper Fuel Valve provides a gravity filling operation for fuel and prevents backflow in the system.  The valve shown is one of three sizes designed and qualified for the F-35 Lightning II fuel system.

In addition to flapper valves, Essex also manufactures poppet, swing-arm and ball valves ranging from ¼” to 2” diameter for checking and relieving aircraft fuel, hydraulic and pneumatic systems.

FLAME ARRESTORS

Flame Arrestors are designed to allow for the venting of fuel vapors while preventing external flames or other ignition sources from entering the fuel lines and supply. Essex flame arrestors are installed in all Boeing commercial aircraft, as well as a number of regional aircraft.

 

 

BATTLEFIELD OXYGEN SUSTAINMENT SYSTEM (BOSS)

The Battlefield Oxygen Sustainment System (BOSS) was designed for the United States Air Force Special Operations to generate, store, fill and deploy LOX.  Currently, the BOSS features four Essex Products, which are also available separately: The Oxygen Generator and Liquefier (OGL); the Backpack Medical Oxygen System Filling Station (BMOS-FS); the Mounted Medical Oxygen System (MMOS); and the Backpack Medical Oxygen System (BMOS).

The BMOS-FS Hose Kit connects the MMOS to the BMOS-FS for refilling.

Applications include Medevac fixed wing, rotary wing and ground transport, as well as parachutist and ground evacuation.

EPOS Smoke Hood

EMERGENCY PASSENGER OXYGEN SYSTEM (EPOS)


The EPOS (Emergency Passenger Oxygen System) is a lightweight, self-contained protective breathing device, or smoke hood, for use in emergency egress and escape situations.   The unit takes just seconds to don and provides 360° visibility while supplying aviation grade oxygen to the wearer for up to 60 minutes. The EPOS smoke hood is designed to protect a user’s respiratory system, head and vision from fire, toxic fumes and hazardous chemical spills.

In the early 1990s, the U.S. Air Force initiated a feasibility study to determine if a commercially available product would meet their requirements for passenger smoke and fume protection in military aircraft emergencies.  They selected the Essex Emergency Passenger Oxygen System smoke hood, which has become standard equipment aboard USAF passenger-carrying aircraft and as well as many other air forces around the world.

The U.S. Air Force utilizes the EPOS smoke hood for trained individuals in military aircraft emergencies such as decompression, fire, evacuation, rescue, smoke-filled cabins, toxic fumes or hazardous cargo spills.

The EPOS smoke hood utilizes compressed aviation grade oxygen and CO2 scrubbers to furnish up to 60 minutes of oxygen for someone at rest.  The patented hood provides 360° visibility and dons in less than 15 seconds.

The one-size-fits-all design of the Emergency Passenger Oxygen System simply slips over the head.  There is no mouthpiece or nose clip to impede communication and the smoke hood allows for corrective or protective eyewear with no restrictions.

At only 2 lbs., the Essex EPOS is the lightest and most comfortable smoke hood available.  The EPOS has a maintenance-free 10-1/2 year life span.

NEXT GENERATION PORTABLE THERAPEUTIC LOX SYSTEM (NPTLOX)

The Next Generation Portable Therapeutic Liquid Oxygen System (NPTLOX) is a low pressure portable 20.0 liter liquid oxygen storage and gaseous delivery system, capable of supplying up to 17,200 gaseous liters of oxygen at a maximum flow rate of 66 liters per minute at 50 psig. The unit features six quick disconnect outlet ports and comes with an accessory kit containing three 20 foot medical grade hoses, three flow control valves, three humidifier bottles and three quick disconnect adapters.  The three flow control valves can deliver oxygen to three patients at flow rates from .5 to 15 liters per minute. The quick disconnect outlet ports can also supply 50 psi of oxygen to other medical devices or to oxygen regulators for additional patients. The NPTLOX has been successfully tested to work in tandem with commonly used ventilators.  Weighing 155 pounds when full, the NPTLOX can be carried by two ground support personnel using the four-position locking handles.  It can also be mounted in an aircraft. The NPTLOX requires no external power and uses just two 9-Volt batteries for the quantity indicator. The system has been tested to MIL-STD-810.
