Rugged Oxygen Generator (ROG)

The Rugged Oxygen Generator (ROG) is a portable, lightweight oxygen generator that delivers 90 litres of breathable oxygen for 15 minutes. Easy-to-use and small enough to carry in a backpack, the ROG gives immediate access to a potentially life saving oxygen supply.

Rugged Oxygen Generator

Oxygen is produced by the thermal decomposition of sodium chlorate within the ROG. This decomposition requires a significant amount of energy input to drive the chlorate decomposition. The source of this energy is the oxidation of iron powder (formulated with the sodium chlorate as a fuel). The initial energy input from the interaction between chlorate and primer is generated by the initiation mechanism, in this case a phosphorous match.

  • Oxygen producing chemical utilised: Sodium chlorate
  • Self contained chemical oxygen generator requires no maintenance during storage
  • Unit activated via an integrated phosphorous match
  • Produces a minimum of 90 litres of breathable oxygen @ NTP over approximately 15 minutes
  • Associated with a high degree of safety due to the absence of pressurised gases
  • Resistant to shock and vibration
