Alternatives to oxygen bottles and nitrogen cylinders

Oxygen filled in oxygen bottles and cylinders is used in both a medical and an industrial environment. The compression of the gas to between 200 and 300 bar in bottles of between 2 and 50 litres makes it possible for both small and large quantities of oxygen to be stored. However, the supply of oxygen in bottles or bundles consisting of several bottles requires a constant monitoring, planning and replenishment process in order to avoid oxygen shortages. This requires human resources. Improper handling of the hazardous goods could also result in explosions. In addition, regular HGV journeys to supply the oxygen pollute the environment.

However, there are alternatives to oxygen bottles and oxygen cylinders that enable an environmentally friendly supply of oxygen in any given quantity and can thereby help reduce costs.

In-house production of oxygen instead of having oxygen bottles delivered

In-house production of oxygen directly on site is a suitable alternative to having oxygen bottles delivered. The requisite oxygen can be produced directly on-site using oxygen generators. Inmatec oxygen generators extract the oxygen directly from the ambient air, which is available in unlimited quantities. The oxygen produced is guided into an oxygen tank and is then directly available for all applications. Oxygen bottles and oxygen cylinders can also be filled on site using the oxygen filling line provided.

This makes it possible to produce oxygen directly at the factory or in the hospital in quantities of between 0.50 Nm³/h and 2,000.00 Nm³/h with a constant O2 purity of up to 90% +/- 3% . The generators require very little maintenance and are easy to use. All operating values are measured and logged. These can be controlled and read out via a display and remotely.

Furthermore, INMATEC POC Med series generators for medical oxygen have been specially designed and developed to supply oxygen in medical facilities in accordance with the strict quality guidelines of ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 7396-1:2016. They are certified in accordance with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC and the gas quality of the oxygen produced complies with the standards of the European Pharmacopoeia for medical applications.

Oxygen references

The potential industrial and medical applications of self-generated oxygen are almost limitless. Many well-known companies already put their trust in Inmatec oxygen generators.

Oxygen cylinder filling system for filling oxygen bottles

Inmatec oxygen generators are supplied as a complete solution with compressed air and an oxygen filling station. In addition to the oxygen generator and an oxygen tank, the solution also includes an oxygen bottling system for filling oxygen bottles. This makes the oxygen or medical oxygen available for mobile use as well, e.g. in ambulances and emergency support vehicles.



Our oxygen generators produce oxygen with a purity up tp 95% at quantities from 0,50 to 352 Nm³/h.
