Francis X. Hursey, President and Founder of On Site Gas Systems Inc. is a pioneer of PSA Oxygen technology. His vision was a company whose focus would be perfecting the PSA process through research and development, while providing cost-saving, reliable nitrogen and oxygen generation systems for numerous applications. He was on the breathing air team of the Apollo Program, and helped develop one of the first oxygen concentrators for home use.
