The manual oxygen filling station is manufactured completely in house, which saves on costs and results in a reduced final price. It is light weight making it a lot easier to transport from place to place if needed. It is a lot easier to handle and safe (user-friendly). Being manufactured with different materials to those used before, makes it kinder to the environment (environmentally-friendly).
There are 2 pressure gauges on the Filling Station. The right hand gauge indicates the bottle or incoming pressure, and this should always be 3000Kpa. The gauge on the left indicates the Vessel or filling pressure. The rate of the filling is clearly visible on this gauge. One can fill the vessel to less than 3000Kpa (never more), however this will only be applicable when one is analyzing samples which are highly combustible (e.g. wood samples) and need less oxygen to burn. For samples such as these we recommend filling the vessel to 1500Kpa.
During normal operation the Filling Station requires very little maintenance. However it is suggested that the ex-center and piston be lightly silicone greased (NOT oiled) so as to minimize wear. Also, the o-ring in the nozzle should be lightly smeared with silicon grease daily to avoid the vessel from sticking to the nozzle when filling. Incorporated with the Filling Station are two holders on either side - one can be used for holding the handling hook and de-filler cap, while the other is to hold the vessel's lid assembly.
WARNING : NEVER use any oil or oil based lubricant on the Filling Station and Vessel. A light (small) amount of special silicone grease can be used on the Filling Station Nozzle O-Ring, Lever, Piston and Ex-Center. DO NOT use silicone grease on any part of the VESSEL.
FILLING STATION APPLICATION
The Filling Station is used to pressure the vessel with oxygen to 3Mpa (3000Kpa) or less as with some applications which have samples that ignite easily. However, you may need to fill the vessel to more than 3000Kpa. This is required so that the sample will ignite and then burn away completely. The oxygen rich environment allows quick and complete combustion of most samples.
