"DD"-Lite Carbon Fiber Oxygen Cylinders are fully wrapped, carbon fiber reinforced, aluminum lined vessels.

  • Construction consists of a seamless 6061-T6 alloy aluminum liner fully overwrapped with epoxy impregnated polyacrylonitrile, PAN-based carbon fibers. Manufactured using the highest grade aerospace materials.
  • Carries Department of Transportation (DOT) regulatory approvals, including design and qualification certifications.  
  • Carries Transport Canada approval.

  • More Oxygen: The "DD"-Lite holds 717 liters of oxygen, approximately twice the amount of oxygen contained in a steel "D" size cylinder.
  • Less Weight: A significant reduction in the weight of these carbon fiber vessels means you can carry more oxygen to remote locations, on board helicopters, up flights of stairs and in your ambulance.
  • Extend Oxygen Administration: Reduce the chances of running out of life-saving oxygen when administering oxygen during extended transport times and high flow use during resuscitation.
  • Multiple Applications: Ideal for search and rescue operations, mounting on a Ferno 35A+ and 93EX Squadmate, aeromedical transport, transport incubators, ventilators and even EMS bicycle fleets.
  • There are no changes in the way you currently care for and/or handle an oxygen vessel. Care for the fiber oxygen vessel just as you do your existing cylinders.
  • Safety: Structural analysis design/qualification certifications. Vessels underwent hydrostatic burst tests, ambient/environmental/thermal cycling test, drop test, gunfire (ballistic) and bonfire tests.
