Demystifying Oxygen Filling: Gas to Gas

October 22, 2014 by Kristen Cifranic

Filling your own oxygen cylinders can save you asignificant amount of money and headaches: Cylinders can befilled for less than one dollar, and youdont have to wait for suppliers or worry about missing cylinders. However, many people think filling is complicated and systems areexpensive. Heres some good news (for a change!)Filling is easy and a lot less expensive than you think. How Does It Work? When gas contained in a cylinder at high pressure is allowed to flow to another cylinder containing gas at a lower pressure, the pressures will equalize to a value somewhere between the two initial pressures. So, with a gas to gas system, the high pressure supply tanks have a higher pressure than the empty cylinders that are to be filled. A filler opens the first supply tank, allows the pressure in the two to equalize, then closes the first supply tank. The filler then opens the second cylinder, and allows it to equalize pressure. This continues down the bank of cylinders until the filling tank
