BOC eases the load for UK emergency services


BOC Healthcare has introduced a revolutionary new oxygen cylinder for frontline emergency medical services in the UK, offering an ultra-lightweight and easy-to-use source of medical oxygen.

Developed in cooperation with Ambulance Trusts and Luxfer Gas Cylinders, the 1 litre, 300-bar cylinder weighs in at just 1.55kg at full capacity – the lightest cylinder package currently available.

As well as having the best gas weight-to-duration ratio available on the market, the new BOC oxygen cylinder has the added benefits of lightweight integral valves, regulators and easy-click settings.

As a member of The Linde Group, BOC worked closely with Luxfer Gas Cylinders to develop the ultra-lightweight product – which incorporates Luxfer’s Odyssey-L7X® cylinders.
