Liquid Oxygen (LOX) Production System

Model # LOX

The future of U.S. Navy cryogenics has arrived on USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), the most advanced aircraft carrier ever built. The new state-of-the-art energy efficient Thermoacoustic Stirling Technology developed in partnership with CHART/Qdrive® and Newport News Shipbuilding achieves major reductions in lifecycle costs. The highly integrated autonomous design delivers nearly “hands-free” LOX on demand, reduced energy, size, weight, maintenance, training and crew. 

Fully Qualified For Military Marine Use.
Oxygen Purity is 94%.

Features

The LOX Production System by RIX Industries is a shipboard-qualified liquid oxygen (LOX) production system that produces both LOX and gaseous oxygen at the same time.

Fully Qualified For Military Marine Use.

Oxygen Purity is 94%.

Controlled by a Programmable Logic Controller, the system is virtually automatic and starts producing LOX within 30 to 60 minutes after turn on.

The LOX System consists of two VSA gaseous oxygen units, one pressure wave generator, and a vacuum-insulated storage module that stores 100 Gals of LOX; the storage module is scalable up to 500 Gals.

Gaseous Oxygen can be pressure boosted from 50 PSIG from the VSA to 3000 PSIG to 5000 PSIG.

Cooling: 30 GPM Chilled Water @ 44 0 F – 50 0 F

VSA Modules (2): Belt-Driven Rotary Blowers

Adsorption Beds: Easy, Direct Access Replaceable Beds

Boost Compressor: RIX 2PS, Belt Driven; Air Cooled

Liquefaction Module: Pressure Wave Generator; Linear Motor Drive with Helium Fluid

Cold Heads: 3 Cold Heads; No moving parts

Storage Module: 100 Gals, scalable up to 500 Gals; vacuum-insulated

LOX Pump: Reciprocating; 3000 PSIG; 9 KW Vaporizer

Controller: Automated Programmable Logic Control System monitors Oxygen Purity and LOX Production
