MEDICAL OXYGEN GENERATION
SMALL SCALE OXYGEN GENERATORS (PSA UNITS)
Click any of the tabs above to learn more about the Medical Oxygen Generation industry.
Molecular sieve is used directly in large PSA Units to separate Oxygen from Nitrogen under specific pressures, capturing Nitrogen and releasing Oxygen to a product tank.
Molecular sieve is used to produce medical oxygen for use by patients in or out of the home or hospital. Atmospheric air enters a compressor, passes through the surge tank, then through sieve beds, where nitrogen is removed. Oxygen is then pumped into the product tank, and the sieve bed is regenerated to allow the process to be repeated. The small, portable size of these units require small beads to allow sufficient oxygen production and capacity, while remaining light enough for the user to carry.
