For many people who are using an oxygen concentrator and preparing to buy an oxygen concentrator, the service life is a very critical issue. There are two key factors that determine the life of an oxygen generator: compressor and molecular sieve.
1. The life of the compressor
First of all, it is necessary to know that the compressor provides power, one of the essential components of an oxygen generator, and is also the core technical accessory of the oxygen generator. The compressor is distinguished by its displacement. From the theory It is said that the larger the displacement, the greater the power in general, the better the effect. From a technical point of view, it is generally believed that high-power compressors are better than low-power compressors. At the same time, the headroom of the compressor with larger displacement will be relatively large, and the displacement may be slightly attenuated during use, but it can also meet the minimum requirements of the system. so, the oxygen generator that needs to have a longer life, must do a large displacement.
Furthermore, under normal circumstances, the compressor consumes most of the electricity of the entire oxygen generator, and comparing the displacement of the two compressors under the same technical conditions, with the viewpoint that a relatively large power one will use a relatively high power. Large oxygen generators need to choose a compressor with a larger displacement to better stabilize the operation of the oxygen generator, and will also have a relatively long service life of the oxygen generator.
The two key points have been explained above, that is, the displacement and power of the compressor. From the principle of the compressor and the oxygen generator mentioned above, when the oxygen generator with a relatively large compressor displacement and power is generally used, the lifespan will be longer. So, it is recommended that you buy JoRadiant oxygen concentrators. At present, JoRadiant oxygen concentrators have the best price/performance ratio.
2. Molecular sieve
For an oxygen generator, molecular sieve is one of the most critical components. The performance of the molecular sieve of oxygen generators directly determines the oxygen production and stability. Those who are familiar with molecular sieves of oxygen generators may know that molecular sieves have the characteristics of strong oil absorption, strong water absorption, and easy pulverization.
There are two main factors affecting the service life of the molecular sieve of the oxygen generator: one is the working environment (dry, oil-free), and the other is the adsorption pressure. Molecular sieves contaminated with oil will have reduced adsorption capacity and cannot be regenerated. Dry and oil-free working environment can prevent molecular sieves from being polluted by water and oil; at the same time, under lower adsorption pressure, molecular sieves are less impacted, and molecular sieves are not easily pulverized.
According to JoRadiant's more than 20 years of experience in oxygen production and supply, the service life of molecular sieves in oxygen generators is affected by their working environment and equipment operation. It can be seen that creating a dry, oil-free, low-pressure environment for the molecular sieve of the oxygen generator can maximize the life of the molecular sieve.
All in all, the oil-free low-pressure oxygen technology ensures that the life of JoRadiant medical molecular sieve oxygen production equipment can reach up to more than 10 years, which also brings real economic benefits to everyone.
Of course, regular cleaning and maintenance of the oxygen generator can also affect the life of the oxygen generator.
