Aviator Breathing Oxygen Testing Programs
Periodic monitoring of Aviator’s Breathing Oxygen (ABO) as described in Mil-PRF-27201J Type I (cylinder stored) or II (bulk O2 transport vessel contained) grade oxygen is a recommended quality assurance check for all commercial airline operations. ALI offers two ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Accredited ABO test programs to its customers that meet either Type I or Type II testing requirements.
ALI can either provide on a rental or purchase basis O2 service-cleaned sampling cylinders or accept customer-supplied DOT-rated cylinders. We also offer on a rental or purchase basis approved O2 cylinder shipping cases for proper air transport of ABO samples to & from our laboratory.
Internal cylinder inspection studies can also be performed whenever cylinder contamination by foreign solids / particulates is suspected. Certified, periodic re-hydrotesting & O2 service cleaning services of customer cylinders is also offered whenever needed.
Air Analysis Testing Programs
Air is used for many important functions. Typical air sources include:
- Natural Outdoor Air
- Indoor air (industrial, commercial, medical, residential, laboratory, aircraft cabin)
- Synthetic (blended) air
- Compressor supplied air
- SCBA / SCUBA contained air, etc.
Each air source has a unique set of impurities that must be controlled for trouble-free use in a specific application.
The quality (grade) of air needed for a given application is often defined by professional agencies (for example CGA, USP/NF, NFPA, NIOSH, Mil-Spec, OSHA, EPA or equipment vendors). In some cases, users must select an appropriate purity grade depending on their specific needs.
Most customers are not “Haz-Mat” qualified to ship compressed air samples to our lab for testing. To eliminate this problem, ALI has developed a number of “No-Haz” air sampling kits that allow you to take a non-compressed air sample in our gas sampling bags, minicyls, sorbent-tubes or filter cartridges and properly ship them to us as “non-hazardous goods of no commercial value”.
ALI also has some easy-to-use on-site test equipment for rapid determination of air quality using simple, accurate detector tubes.
