What are Oxygen Generators?

Oxygen generators are devices that offer a reliable and efficient way to produce oxygen right where it’s needed. They make use of compressed air, which approximately 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen, along with some other gases. These units then separate the oxygen from the other gases in the air.

This method moves away from older ways of getting oxygen, like using cylinders or liquid oxygen tanks that need regular refills and need ample space. Oxygen generators are especially useful where it’s hard to get oxygen because of where you are or cost issues.

The core technology in our oxygen generators is called Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA). It uses the unique traits of gases under pressure. The process starts by compressing the air and directing it into one of two vessels filled with a molecular sieve that captures nitrogen but lets oxygen flow through.

As the pressure builds, nitrogen gets caught in the molecular sieve, and the clean oxygen gas which is not absorbed by the sieve, is transferred to the buffer tank. When the sieve is full of nitrogen, the pressure is released, and the nitrogen goes back into the air. At the same time, the other tank is put under pressure. This cycle keeps going, ensuring a steady supply of oxygen.


Oxygen Generators: Key Benefits

Oxygen generators that use Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology bring several key advantages for making oxygen right where it’s used:

  • Cost Savings: Making oxygen on-site means companies can save a lot on the costs of moving, storing, and handling the usual bottled or liquid oxygen. It reduces the need for regular oxygen deliveries and the space needed to store it.
  • High Purity: These PSA oxygen generators reliably make nearly pure oxygen, with concentrations of oxygen ranging from 90% to 95%. This precise control of purity levels means they can meet the specific oxygen needs for different uses with great accuracy.
  • Dependable and Safe: The ability to make oxygen continuously on-site is extremely important, particularly in industries that rely heavily on oxygen. PSA technology reduces the risk of oxygen shortages. It also lessens the dangers that come with managing high-pressure oxygen cylinders.
  • Adjustable to Needs: PSA oxygen generators are flexible and can be tailored to produce the right amount of oxygen needed. They can adjust the flow rate, purity, and pressure to match the specific demands of any size operation, from small workshops to large factories.


Choosing the Right Oxygen Generation Solution

When looking for an oxygen generator, it’s important to carefully choose one that fits your needs. Consider these important factors:

  • Purity Needs: The level of oxygen purity required can differ widely based on its purpose. PSA technology can achieve up to 95% purity. Identifying the exact purity your process needs is critical for the best performance and to meet industry standards.
  • Flow Rate: Knowing how much oxygen your operation uses is key. Oxygen output is usually measured in liters per minute or cubic meters per hour. You’ll want a generator that not only covers your usual use but can also handle any surges in demand, to keep your operations running smoothly.
  • Pressure Needs: Some uses may need oxygen at certain pressures. Make sure the generator can deliver oxygen at the pressures you need, which could be anywhere from low (4-8 bar) to high (150, 170, 200 bar), using extra equipment to boost pressure.
  • Working Environment: The place where an oxygen system runs can affect its efficiency and life span. Consider the local air quality, temperature range, and altitude, as these factors can impact the machine’s performance and durability.
  • Total Cost: The purchase price is just one part of the cost. You should also think about long-term costs like energy use, regular maintenance, and parts that might need replacing over time. This will give you a full view of what the generator will cost over its life.

Oxywise Oxygen Generators’ Main Applications

Oxygen generators are vital in many areas, each with specific requirements:

  • Healthcare: In medical settings, these machines provide essential oxygen supply to patients in rooms and ICUs (oxygen therapy/supplemental oxygen), and are also used during anesthesia.
  • Water Treatment: They’re key in ozone generators for cleaning water, helping break down harmful substances in both drinking water and sewage.
  • Aquaculture: In fish farming, oxygen generators are crucial for maintaining the water’s oxygen levels, which is essential for the health and growth of the fish.
  • Mining and Metallurgy: Oxygen boosts the efficiency of mining and metal processing by speeding up chemical reactions. This helps extract metals from ores more quickly and thoroughly.
  • Glass and Ceramic Production: Adding oxygen into the production process can greatly improve furnace operations in glass and ceramic making. This leads to better-quality products and fewer emissions.
