This document defines the minimum degree of purity and maximum levels of certain deleterious impurities allowable for aviator's breathing oxygen at the point of manufacture or generation. It covers gaseous, liquid, and chemically generated oxygen, and oxygen supplied by in situ concentration and in situ electrolysis.
Different limits are established for oxygen from different sources, in recognition of differences in the ways the oxygen is stored, dispensed, and utilized, taking into account the safety of the user. These limits are not intended to specifically reflect upon the relative capabilities or merits of various technologies. Procurement documents may specify more stringent limits, where required for specific applications.
Medical oxygen is not covered by this standard. In the United States, medical oxygen is a prescription drug and complies with the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP). In Europe, medical oxygen specification compiles with the European Pharmacopoeia monograph (Ph Eur 0417).
The aim of this edition is to harmonize impurity requirements, of various oxygen supply technologies; like gaseous-, chemical-, liquid-, or in situ-generated oxygen. Limits included in this edition correspond from human physiology point of view to acknowledged data of American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

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.
