Refilling a Portable Supplemental Oxygen Bottle at an FBO

Asked by: 2499 views
General Aviation

I have a SkyOx portable oxygen system. When I want to get it refilled I see that the Airport Facilities Directory tells me which facilities have oxygen using a code that indicates what they offer such as

OX 1 = High Pressure

OX 2 = Low Pressure

OX 3 = High Pressure - Replacement Bottles

OX 4 = Low Pressure - Replacementment Bottles

My question is  which of these codes indicates they can refill a portable supplemental oxygen bottle... I'm guessing OX 3 but I'm wondering about OX 1.

    In your case you are looking for the OX 1, weather you have an aluminum tank or steel tank. If you have lost the instructions here is the link to the manual in PDF format
