Chemical Oxygen Supplies
- Aerospace Standard
Published October 30, 2014 by SAE International in United States
Solid chemical oxygen supplies of interest to aircraft operations are "chlorate candles" and potassium superoxide (KO2). Chlorate candles are used in passenger oxygen supply units and other emergency oxygen systems, such as submarines and escape devices. Potassium superoxide is not used in aircraft operations but is used in closed-cycle breathing apparatus. Characteristics and applications of both are discussed, with emphasis on chlorate candles.
This document has been determined to contain basic and stable technology which is not dynamic in nature.

A-10 Aircraft Oxygen Equipment Committee
Welcome to the SAE A-10 Aircraft Oxygen Equipment Committee public forum area.The SAE A-10 Aircraft Oxygen Equipment Committee develops standards and practices in the design and information compiled from users, equipment suppliers, aircraft manufacturers, regulatory agencies and medical groups in the aeronautical oxygen field. The A-10 Committee also promotes safety in the aviation oxygen field. It defines the needs and encourages research needed in the area of aviation physiology, as it relates to respiratory functions and oxygen equipment performance.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
