Essex is pleased to announce that they have received FDA 510(k) Clearance on the Oxygen Generator and Liquefier (OGL). This clearance covers the use of the OGL in military and commercial applications to produce and transfer liquid oxygen (LOX) into portable systems, such as the Essex BMOS (Backpack Medical Oxygen System), MMOS (Mounted Medical Oxygen System) and NPTLOX (Next Generation Portable Therapeutic Liquid Oxygen System). These portable systems are then used to provide supplemental oxygen for patients during transport.
The Essex OGL is designed to liquefy, store and fill LOX equipment. The system generates 1 liquid liter of 93% USP oxygen per hour, with an onboard LOX storage capacity of 40 liters. The OGL has a user-friendly operator interface and runs on standard 240 VAC. Designed for reliability in harsh conditions, the OGL is portable using a fork lift or pallet transport.
The FDA 510(k) Clearance Number for the Essex OGL is K131990.
