RIX Industries knows oxygen compressors. RIX has been manufacturing oxygen boosters since 1970.
Safety and a strict quality product as RIX’s number one priority are incorporated into manufacturing each oxygen booster. Inside the oxygen clean rooms, RIX follows strict oxygen cleaning guidelines to CGA 4.1 and US MilSpec with each gas contacting part, and maintains detailed cleaning records.
RIX uses oxygen-compatible materials and carefully evaluates gas velocities throughout the oxygen system. Low or medium pressure oxygen compressor systems are available for VSA applications at steel mills, paper plants, and water treatment plants. High-pressure oxygen boosters are used for filling oxygen cylinders from oxygen PSA systems.
RIX high-pressure oxygen compressors are usually used to fill oxygen cylinders for oxygen storage at up to 210 barg (3,000 psig). The oxygen gas comes from either a PSA (pressure swing adsorption) system, a liquid oxygen vessel, or from oxygen cylinders that have been drawn down to low pressure. The RIX oxygen booster compressors then use from two to four stages to boost the pressure up to storage levels. This is done in a totally oil-free environment. The compressor lower ends are lubricated with grease on the smaller systems or with force-fed oil in the larger systems. The lubricated lower ends are very carefully separated from the oxygen compression cylinders with extended distance pieces, rod wipers, and oil slingers. Many PSA manufacturers around the world use the RIX oxygen boosters to connect their PSA’s to cylinder-filling manifolds.
RIX has designed and manufactured oil-free oxygen compressors for many applications, ranging from the oxygen system of large size ASU(Air Separation Unit) to the oxygen bottle filling system, even hospital as well. Small size oxygen compressor is applicable to PSA oxygen self-made system. The pressure of the compressor used in VSA plant can be at up to 30barg and the pressure of the one used in oxygen bottle filling system can be at up to 300psig(200barg).
All the compressors are well designed and manufactured with carefully material selection, cleaning and quality control. Only the compression system which is safe and reliable will be supplied for various applications.
Oxygen for industrial processes is generally higher volume and can require flow rates of up to 3,000 nM3/hr (1,900 SCFM). The pressures can be higher than requirements for medical oxygen, sometimes up to 35 barg (510 psig).
RIX keeps the piston speeds on these compressors very low, usually in the range of 2 to 2.5 m/sec (450 ft/min). RIX’s oversized bearings and slow run speeds make the RIX pumps among the longest-lived and lowest maintenance in the industry.
