Aditya Engineering Oxygen Concentrator
Home medical oxygen concentrators were invented in the early 1970s, with the manufacturing output of these devices increasing in the late 1970s. Union Carbide Corporation and Bendix Corporation were both early manufacturers. Before that era, home medical oxygen therapy required the use of heavy high-pressure oxygen cylinders or small cryogenic liquid oxygen systems.
Both of these delivery systems required frequent home visits by suppliers to replenish oxygen supplies. In the United States, Medicare switched from fee-for- service payment to a flat monthly rate for home oxygen therapy in the mid-1980s, causing the durable medical equipment (DME) industry to rapidly embrace concentrators as a way to control costs. This reimbursement change dramatically decreased the number of primary high pressure and liquid oxygen delivery systems in use in homes in the United States at that time.
Oxygen concentrators became the preferred and most common means of delivering home oxygen. The number of manufacturers entering the oxygen concentrator market increased exponentially as a result of this change. Union Carbide Corporation invented the molecular sieve in the 1950s which made these devices possible. It also invented the first cryogenic liquid home medical oxygen systems in the 1960s.

Oxygen concentrators are typically used as stationary sources to provide long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) to patients at home. Oxygen concentrators consist of a cabinet that houses the compressor and filters; tubing; a nasal cannula and/or face mask.
How does oxygen concentrator work?
An oxygen concentrator works by filtering and concentrating oxygen molecules from the ambient air to provide patients with 90% to 95% pure oxygen. The compressor of the oxygen concentrator sucks ambient air and adjusts the pressure at which it is provided. A concentrator consists of a compressor and sieve bed filter. The former squeezes atmospheric air and also adjusts the pressure at which is delivered. The sieve bed is made of a material called Zeolite that separates the nitrogen. There are two sieve beds that work to both release oxygen into a tank that’s connected to the cannula as well as release the separated nitrogen and form a continuous loop that keeps producing fresh oxygen.
Advantages Of Oxygen Concentrator
1) No Refilling is Require
One of the Oxygen concentrator advantages is they don’t require refilling, unlike cylinders that need a refill when they run out due to a limited air supply. The Oxygen Concentrator Machine runs on electrical power providing unlimited oxygen.
2)Portability is one of the key advantages of Oxygen Concentrator
There are many variants of Portable concentrators available in the market weighing up to 4.5 kg and can be used “on the go”. These types of oxygen therapy devices come with a battery pack and can last up to 12 hours of continuous use on a single charge. Oxygen Concentrator machines are more convenient than compressed gas cylinders, and they are known to last for up to 1500 hours of a lifetime.
3)Different Models and makes
Oxygen concentrator machines are available in various sizes, models, styles, and build. Each type of concentrator is designed to perfectly fit your requirements. You can also opt to install a stationary Oxygen Concentrator machine in your place according to the space provided.
Safety is also one of the comparative advantages of Oxygen Concentrator Machines. Oxygen cylinders are prone to leaks and oxygen wastage. Everyone knows how valuable Oxygen has been during the pandemic surge in India. An oxygen-rich environment also acts as fuel to the fire. On the contrary, there no worries about oxygen wastage or leakage issues with oxygen concentrator machines.
5)Oxygen Concentrator Price is Similar to Oxygen Cylinder
A stationary oxygen concentrator machine has higher oxygen output and low costs. This is an excellent alternative to oxygen cylinders and often comes with more durability and longer life—the best part about the Oxygen Concentrator machine is that you can buy a used one at a surprisingly low cost.
