Oxycheck is an Australian company with expertise in all aspects of oxygen systems, particularly in relation to the compatibility of materials in oxygen-enriched atmospheres. Dr. Ted Steinberg, Managing Director of OXYCHECK, is a recognised expert in many areas of materials compatibility in oxygen-enriched (oxidising) atmospheres and material flammability. Dr Steinberg also provides consulting services to numerous industrial and aerospace organisations, has received several ASA awards, Lockheed's highest scientific award (the Robert E. Gross Award), co-edited five ASTM Special Technical Publications (STP's) and authored numerous papers on the flammability and sensitivity of materials in oxygen-enriched environments.
OXYCHECK Engineering Manager, Chris Dobinson, has worked closely with Dr. Steinberg in the area of metallic material flammability since 2010. OXYCHECK personnel are active with many international standards and safety organisations, ensuring that the most up-to-date and relevant information, practices and data are incorporated into the ongoing design, development, production and delivery of components.
The need for a range of unique and improved oxygen system flow control valves was identified through the investigation of several significant fires that started within the flow control components of various industrial, medical and aircraft oxygen systems. A thorough evaluation of commercially available oxygen control valves subsequently identified that no products offered both suitable performance and non-flammability. OXYCHECK then began development of a range of control valves that was to contain no flammable metals, no non-metals and no lubricants without sacrificing functionality, endurance or performance. This development process has provided the inherent safety and excellent performance that make OXYCHECK flow control components unique.
All OXYGEN components undergo an extremely rigorous performance evaluation prior to shipping and only the best oxygen-clean processes are used. Functional performance, including flow parameters, reverse leak rates and resistance to resonance-induced valve chatter, is exceptional and these attributes have been independently validated by leading defence organisations, which has lead the Australian Defence Force to utilise OXYCHECK's valves on their fleets of relevant aircraft including the P3 Orion, Caribou and PC9. OXYCHECK utilises a 'Form-Fit-Function' design philosophy, which typically makes its products interchangeable with existing components and, when required by the customer, valves are customized to enable an easy retrofit to existing systems.
OXYCHECK looks forward to providing you with the world's best and safest oxygen control valves for all your various oxygen system requirements at a competitive price. We thank you in advance for your review and consideration of OXYCHECK products.
