Environics Inc. Announces Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device Now Available Through GSA Advantage!
Environics Inc. is pleased to announce that the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device 2 (ROBD2), which simulates altitude exposure and can be utilized for both research and hypoxia training, is now available for purchase through the U.S. General Services Administration’s Online GSA Advantage Portal. Environics is the only licensed manufacturer of the ROBD2. By purchasing through the GSA, customers can simplify their purchasing process and receive the government discount on their systems.
The system uses Thermal Mass Flow Controllers (MFC) to mix breathing air and nitrogen to produce the sea level equivalent atmospheric oxygen contents for altitudes up to 34,000 feet. The MFC's are calibrated on a primary flow standard traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ROBD 2 introduces pressure changes and gas expansion as a function of altitude. Several safety features are built into the device: prevention of over pressurization of the subject's mask, prevention of reduced oxygen contents below those being requested for a particular altitude and an emergency dump switch that will supply 100% O2 to subjects. The software is menu driven, simplifying the use of the system for the field operator. Built-in self-tests verify all system component functionality before the operation of the system can begin. If any self-test fails the system will not operate.
