How does Pureline’s oxygen concentrator work?
The Pureline OC8000 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 (about 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.
Can I use it with more than one anesthesia machine?
Yes. The Pureline OC8000 supplies 8 liter per minute of oxygen that can be used for more than one anesthesia machine at a time. It comes complete and ready for use.
What safety features does Pureline have?
Pureline concentrators are FDA approved for anesthesia use (USP93%) and UL tested. It is made of the highest-quality materials and is built in the USA to the highest ISO quality standards. The Pureline® machine itself features both audible and illuminated safety alerts and has an backup oxygen supply (standard E tank).
