Project Details

The system included the following equipment:

  • Chart HS-6000 Horizontal Main Tank
  • Chart VS-525 Reserve Tank
  • Cryoquip HAI 812-F-7 Vaporizers (3)
  • ACME Vaporizer Switching Manifold
  • ACME Hospital Control Manifold
  • ACME Fill Assembly


Finn Design Group (now merged with PASE) prepared the Structural Construction Documents, including the concrete pad and equipment anchorages, and the Structural Calculations. As part of our design, we allowed for the future expansion of the oxygen system by 1) designing the pad for the weight of larger (HS-9,000 Main and VS-1500 Reserve) tanks, and 2) designing and detailing for the installation of cast-in-place anchors that can be used for the future installation of these tanks.

Finn Design Group closely coordinated the project with the gas supplier, the Mechanical Engineer, and the project Architect.
