Northbay Medical Center Vacaville

This project involved the replacement of an existing main O2 tank that had an aluminum inner vessel—a condition no longer allowed under current Codes. To take advantage of the opportunity and address other Code deficiencies, nearly the entire O2 system was replaced. In order to eliminate need for a temporary system trailer, the new system was constructed on a new pad immediately adjacent to the existing system. Once the new system was certified, it was brought online and the existing system was removed.

The following new equipment was installed:

  • Chart HS-1500 Horizontal Main Tank
  • Chart VHR-260 Reserve Tank
  • Cryoquip VAI 812-F-SP 3-circuit Vaporizer
  • ACME Vaporizer Switching Manifold
  • ACME Hospital Control Manifold
  • ACME Fill Assembly

This project was considered by OSHPD an Emergency Maintenance/Repair project, and was reviewed and approved by the OSHPD Area Compliance Officer
