Oxygen shipping containers
Americase designed, developed, and completed the first HM224B/DOT31FP shipping containers for the NORS (Nitrogen Oxygen Recharge System) program, a part of NASA’s Orbital Replacement Unit Project. Working in concert with The Boeing Company in Huntsville, AL, Americase created containers that will resupply the International Space Station with nitrogen and oxygen.
The purpose of the container is to safely transport the RTA (Recharge Tank Assembly), a very large and complex oxygen chamber, to several locations in the world. The assembly will then be loaded onto spacecraft and brought to the International Space Station. Like all of the Americase’s “Super Boxes,” the NASA containers must pass ATA 300 Category 1 requirements, as well as the flame and heat penetration standards set forth in the Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations.
