Type A4 "walk round " bottle
« on: July 23, 2016, 06:27:27 AM »
The latest addition to the collection is this Type A4 "walk round" bottle . Sometimes referred to as the "green apple" . This is a low pressure cylinder that holds 104 cubic inches of oxygen .
The regulator attached to this particular bottle is the Type A15 which is an automatic  diluter demand regulator , which if im correct allowed the use of ambient air to be drawn in and mixed with the tanks contents
