FAR – Regulatory Requirements Covering the Use of Breathing Oxygen in Aircraft

2016-06-22
CURRENT
AIR1389B
This report presents, paraphrased in tabular format, an overview of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) for aircraft oxygen systems. It is intended as a ready reference for those considering the use of oxygen in aircraft and those wishing to familiarize themselves with the systems requirements for existing aircraft. This document is not intended to replace the oxygen related FAR but rather to index them in some order. For detailed information, the user is referred to the current issue of the relevant FAR paragraph referenced in this report.

Oxygen System Fill/Check Valve

1997-12-01
CURRENT
AS1225A
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines minimum standards of design, construction, and performance for two types of permanently installed, high pressure 12,800 kPa (1850 psig) and 13,800 kPa (2000 psig) oxygen system cylinder fill valves used in commercial aircraft. Refer to Purchaser's Specification for Requirements which are beyond the scope or level of detail provided in this document. One valve has an adjustable pressure sensitive closing valve to automatically control the final pressure for a correct amount of oxygen in the system. The second valve incorporates an automatic shutoff feature designed to limit system overpressurization in the event maintenance personnel do not stop system filling at the correct pressure. The intent of the fill valves is to control the rate of fill to limit the rise in temperature caused by compression heating to acceptable values, prevent oxygen back flow and prevent the ingestion of foreign matter that could cause contamination of the system.

MINIMUM STANDARD FOR OXYGEN PRESSURE REDUCERS

1973-05-01
HISTORICAL
AS1248
This standard is designed to cover all types of pressure reducers required for oxygen systems and for all performance profiles without regard for a particular inlet pressure or outlet pressure performance curve. Special attention will be given, however, to construction requirements essential in reducers where critical high initial oxygen pressures such as 1850 to 2250 psig (12.76 to 15.51 MN/m2 gauge) at 70° F (21.1° C) are involved.

HIGH PRESSURE OXYGEN SYSTEM FILLER VALVE

1971-07-30
HISTORICAL
AS1225
This AS covers oxygen filler valves for use in aircraft to ensure safe servicing of high pressure oxygen system cylinders. The intent is that the valve shall automatically control the rate of fill such that the temperature rise in the oxygen system caused by compression heating of the gas will be within acceptable limits. In addition, the valve shall have a pressure sensitive closing valve to automatically control the final pressure for a correct amount of oxygen in the system cylinder. The pressure closing level may be manually selected by means of adjustment dials on the valve.

MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR VALVE, HIGH PRESSURE OXYGEN, CYLINDER SHUT OFF, MANUALLY OPERATED

1968-12-01
HISTORICAL
AS1066
This standard covers all types of manually operated high pressure oxygen, cylinder shut off valves for use in commercial type aircraft. It is intended that the valve shall be attached to a pressure cylinder storing oxygen under pressure of 1800 to 2100 psig at 70 F. Upon opening the valve, oxygen will be permitted to discharge from the storage cylinder to the valve outlet and thence to other components of the oxygen system. It shall also be possible to recharge the cylinder through the valve.

Minimum Standards for Valve, High Pressure Oxygen, Cylinder Shut Off, Manually Operated

2002-03-01
CURRENT
AS1066B
This standard covers all types of manually operated high pressure oxygen, cylinder shut off valves for use in commercial aircraft. It is intended that the valve shall be attached to a pressure cylinder storing oxygen under a nominal pressure of 12.76 MPa (1850 psig) at 21 °C (70 °F). Upon opening the valve, oxygen will be permitted to discharge from the storage cylinder to the valve outlet and to other downstream components of the oxygen system. It shall also be possible to recharge the cylinder through the valve.

Passenger Hypoxia Protection Utilizing Oxygen Enriched Gas Mixtures

CURRENT
AIR6036
Currently, existing civil aviation standards address the design and certification of oxygen dispensing devices that utilize oxygen sources supplying at least 99.5% oxygen. This Aerospace Information Report discusses issues relating to the use in the passenger cabin of oxygen enriched breathing gas mixtures having an oxygen content of less than 99.5% and describes one method of showing that passenger oxygen dispensing devices provide suitable hypoxia protection when used with such mixtures.
