Tech. Sharing | What is the difference between different capacities of oxygen concentrators?


Conventional oxygen generators have different specifications, such as 1L, 2L, 3L and 5L, which refer to the corresponding flow (flow per minute) when the oxygen concentration is 90%. For example, a 1L oxygen generator means that the oxygen generator keeps the oxygen concentration at 90% when it produces 1L of oxygen per minute. If more than 1L of oxygen per minute, the oxygen concentration will decrease.

Both 1-liter and 2-liter oxygen generators are health-care oxygen generators, which are suitable for use as health-care devices. The production threshold of such oxygen generators is the lowest, and there are many brands.

Oxygen generators of more than 3 liters belong to medical oxygen generators. Of course, such oxygen generators can also be used at home, which can also be called household oxygen generators. Generally speaking. The 3L oxygen generator can be used to treat some non serious diseases or provide daily health care for the elderly. If the disease is serious, the 5-liter or 10-liter oxygen generator should be selected accordingly. The characteristic of the 5-liter or 10-liter oxygen generator is that no matter how many liters it is modulated, the oxygen concentration is more than 90%; The oxygen concentration of the 3-liter oxygen generator can reach more than 90% only when the oxygen flow is less than 3 liters.

Simply put, the difference between oxygen generators is mainly the difference of oxygen flow. According to the severity of the disease, Chengdu can choose oxygen generators with different flow. And the 1-liter or 2-liter oxygen generator is mainly used for oxygen health care, and the oxygen generator with more than 3 liters can be used for oxygen therapy.
