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.
