FAQ - Oxygen Concentrators
Oxygen concentrators are modern devices used to provide oxygen (95±3%)
using the air from the atmosphere. They can be powered from mains electricity
or rechargeable batteries.
How do they work?
They work by taking in the air (Containing mostly nitrogen and oxygen
plus the trace gases) and run it into a container of zeolite (this is a sieve
material), the air is then pressurised, the zeolite holds onto the nitrogen, and
the oxygen is removed from the container and stored in an internal storage tank
and later comes out of the outlet as the enriched concentration, the container is
then de-pressurised so the nitrogen is released from the zeolite, the nitrogen is
purged from the machine. Then the cycle starts again.
Are they safe?
Oxygen concentrators are absolutely safe because they don't have liquefied and
compressed gases in them or other dangerous elements.
What is the difference between an Oxygen
Concentrator and Oxygen Generator?
These terms have been used interchangeably, with oxygen concentrator being
the most technically accurate. Generically, oxygen concentrators describe
smaller low pressure medical systems, and oxygen generators describe all other
Do I need a back up?
We would recommend that you have spare cylinder of gas handy for an
emergency - basically, just incase you have a power cut (although you could
keep an emergency battery to power the oxygen concentrator).
Will I save money?
The answer to this is undoubtedly YES - but, it depends on your current monthly
oxygen consumption, tank sizes and tank rental costs. Our high demand users
have seen a capital pay back time in as little as 6 months, while our lower use
clients have realised this over 12 months. After this - your oxygen becomes
How long will my oxygen concentrator last?
Oxygen concentrators will last for many years, but over time they may need
routine maintenance, namely cleaning the filters and occasionally repair.
