How does Pureline’s oxygen concentrator work?
The Pureline OC4000 draws in room air through a filter. A compressor sends the filtered air to a solenoid valve, which moves it into one cylinder of Pureline’s two-cylinder design. This two-cylinder design ensures a constant supply of oxygen; while one side is being used, the other side is being replenished. Under pressure inside the cylinder, the molecular sieve material attracts and holds the nitrogen from the room air (21% O2). The enriched oxygen (92-95% O2) is directed to the pressure regulator, a final filter, and finally out to the anesthesia machine. Remember, while one cylinder is in use, the other is refilling with enriched oxygen ensuring you a constant, reliable supply of oxygen.
If this is so good why haven’t we had it already?
Veterinary anesthesia machines with oxygen concentrators have been in use in Europe for years, but have not been used in the United States due to the prohibitive cost of the concentrator. Recent developments have brought down the cost of oxygen concentrators and made them extremely cost effective. In addition to the lower cost, Supera Anesthesia Innovations has added safety features that European models don’t have, perfected the design for use with anesthesia machines, making it easier to use and utterly reliable, and is offering Pureline to vets in the US for the first time.
Can I use it with my existing vaporizer and other anesthesia equipment?
Yes. The Pureline OC4000 works will all kinds of vaporizers and machines. It comes complete and ready for use. Other than the oxygen backup tank, there are no tanks, hoses, or regulators to buy, store, or replace.
What safety features does Pureline have?
Pureline is FDA approved and UL tested. It is made of the highest-quality materials and is built in the USA to the highest ISO quality standards and certified by TÜV SÜD America. TÜV SÜD America is a globally recognized testing, inspection and certification organization. The Pureline machine itself features both audible and illuminated safety alerts and has an emergency backup oxygen supply (standard E tank). Supera products have never had an equipment-related animal death reported.
What sort of savings can I expect?
With the Pureline OC4000, you get your medical-grade oxygen for free, on demand. By eliminating tank rental, refills, and tank management, Pureline enables you to save thousands per machine, per year. In fact, it could pay for itself in as little as one year.
