Essex Industries recently received an order from the United States Air Force for 500 Gallon LOX Trailers. Shipment of the 32 trailers was scheduled to begin in August and run through February of 2018. The USAF will deploy most of these units at domestic bases, as well as US bases in Oman, Japan, South Korea and Italy.

The Essex 500 Gallon LOX Trailer is a mobile liquid oxygen storage tank assembly. Designed for the transport and storage of LOX at airbases and military installations, the 500 Gallon LOX Trailer provides a logistics solution for flight line LOX requirements. Liquid Oxygen is used for aircraft pilot and crew life support applications, allowing them to breath oxygen at altitudes in which oxygen is less prevalent. Liquid oxygen is also used for casualty evacuation applications allowing patients and warfighters who are in critical condition access to the mass amounts of oxygen required to stabilize their SpO2, or blood oxygen saturation level.

Storing oxygen in a liquid form allows for the Air Force, amongst many other users, to mobilize enormous amounts of oxygen without compromising the already limited space and weight allowances on board aircraft. It also stores oxygen at a significantly lower pressure than gaseous oxygen systems which provides a safety benefit for system maintainers, operators, and users.

The 500 Gallon LOX Trailer can be used with all Essex LOX converters, BMOS, BMOS-FS, MMOS, NPTLOX, PTLOX and 50 Gallon LOX Carts. A 500 Gallon LIN Trailer for the transport and storage of liquid nitrogen is also available. Both 500 Gallon Trailers are qualified to Air Force PD13WRGRVEA05 and environmentally tested to MIL-STD-810.
