Liquid Oxygen Equipment
Essex entered the cryogenics market in 1963 and today has become a leader in liquid oxygen equipment, having delivered over 100,000 new LOX systems for military/commercial applications.
In 2010, Essex assembled a complete Battlefield Oxygen Sustainment System (BOSS) as part of the USAF Guardian Angels Integrated Oxygen System. The BOSS provides a medevac team with equipment that works together to deliver oxygen to the patient both on the ground and during transport as well as devices to generate LOX and refill equipment in the field.
The technology developed for military LOX systems has led Essex to similar advancements in the commercial medevac marketplace. Essex LOX converters for air medical transport are available in 5 liter, 7 liter and 10 liter sizes. Essex also offers the Ready to Install (RTI) system that allows installation of the equipment on the aircraft without the expense of a costly retrofit.
In addition to supplying new equipment, Essex offers customers complete maintenance, repair and overhaul services on LOX equipment.
