OXYGEN COMPONENT TEST
The 1172AS100 oxygen test stand shown in
figure 2-1 is the key to proper testing of oxygen
regulators. A leaky test stand gives improper
readings, uses excessive nitrogen, and can be a
safety hazard. To ensure this equipment is in
proper operating order is the responsibility of the
senior parachute rigger. The senior parachute
rigger can easily accomplish this by periodically
testing the test stand for leaks and performing
daily preventive maintenance.
