I'm looking to get a bit of info on Chemical Oxygen generation, especially as done on aircraft. I understand the process of Chemical Oxygen Generation. I'm also aware that weight for weight it produces far more oxygen than Oxygen gas canisters.
What I want to know is are there any other advantages? Does it have added safety benefits when compared to high pressure gaseous oxygen storage? The Oxygen candle burns extremely hot when it goes off but I'd imagine high pressure gas canisters could be far more dangerous and prone to exploding if damaged?
