Hospital installation in Italy
End of last year the Italian magazine HOSPITAL & PUBLIC HEALTH published an article about Oxymat PSA oxygen gas generators.
The article was about an installation which was sold by our partner in Italy CO-MED di Paolo Colombo. The oxygen generator installation was sold to the hospital L’Ospedale di Venaria Reale, which is situated in the Province of Turin. The installation is a complete PSA line, which will provide the minimum 93% pure oxygen to the hospital distribution network. The system is approved and certified as a medical oxygen production unit according to the European Pharmacopoeia. The generator is undergoing a test phase and is currently supplying 33 beds. Before the PSA installation the hospital used cylinders, which takes a lot of man hours to handle and is extremely expensive.
The PSA oxygen generator is controlled on-site but also remotely. The technical manager of the hospital can see all data from the PSA on his personal computer. Pressure and purity is among the parameters which is shown remotely as well as any small production variations. Warnings regarding service of filters, pressure drop or purity failure will be shown as well.
In case of power failure, the backup systems will automatically set in. A manifold will allow a second source, to step in and supply the hospital. The second source is cylinder or liquid oxygen backup. All valves are always open. No mechanical nor electrical systems are needed to start the backup to take over oxygen delivery. Everything is controlled by pressure.
L’Ospedale di Venaria Reale is the first of 3 installations that Oxymat has supplied to Italian hospitals. More installations are planned for 2018. The hospitals save a lot of money on oxygen supply. The oxygen is now produced on-site and not in a gas factory hundreds of kilometers away. No more oxygen deliveries using big diesel driven trucks. This way the hospital also contributes to the reduction of CO2 emission.
We at Oxymat look forward in making more installations in 2018 together with CO-MED, our medical partner in Italy
