WWII Oxygen Regulator MK X. 106D/24. Lancaster Bomber. New Old Stock. Boxed
This WWII-era Oxygen Master Regulator Mark X was used in large bomber aircraft of the British Royal Air Force and Royal Canadian Air Force, such as the Avro Lancaster. The Mk X regulator was for a high pressure continuous flow oxygen system and allowed the pilot to control the flow of oxygen centrally for up to 8 crewmen.
The left hand knob controlled the flow of oxygen, which would be displayed on the ALT gauge. The flow was to be set to match the altitude of the aircraft, up to 40,000 ft. The right hand knob turned the system on and off. The right hand gauge measured system pressure and indicated the quantity of oxygen remaining in the system.
This unit is one of several that I have obtained which were original stored at 137 Maintenance unit and has been in storage as a serviceable item for some time. The unit is New Old Stock and comes in its original box. The label dates this as a 1943 dated item. Condition is excellent. Both knobs rotate and operate as they should. The glass and cases of the gauges (made by US Gauge) are intact and all lettering is clear and precise. The Crown mark is shown on the front of the unit along with the stores reference. This is probably the cleanest MK X we have ever had
Condition is as per photos and the item would need a full professional assessment by a suitably qualified person before been used on an aircraft
