Medical Oxygen Generation
As the global population’s respiratory ailments are diagnosed and treated, the need for oxygen-enriched air is on the rise. Many companies are designing and manufacturing medical oxygen concentrators using Zeochem’s high-performance ZEOX molecular sieve products, giving medical professionals the ability to provide their patients with required respiratory care. Our commitment to develop and produce the highest-quality molecular sieves for medical oxygen is unmatched within the industry.
ZEOX molecular sieves adsorb nitrogen from the air in pressure swing adsorption (PSA) processes while allowing the oxygen to pass through the system. This purified oxygen is delivered to the patient in a medical oxygen concentrator to fulfill the patient’s respiratory needs by providing more oxygen for the body. Through the PSA process, medical oxygen concentrators purify the air and concentrate the oxygen level to greater than 90%.
The superior selectivity for the adsorption of nitrogen over oxygen is present in all ZEOX products. Our ZEOX line consists of the highest nitrogen-loading-capacity molecular sieves on the market, which are used in the lightest and most advanced portable oxygen concentrator (POC) designs. ZEOX products are also used in many stationary personal oxygen concentrator designs.
With several different grades of products to choose from, it is important for device manufacturers to select the right sieves for their PSA designs. Our ZEOX sieves offer maximum versatility and performance, giving medical oxygen concentrator manufacturers the ability to tune their PSA design parameters to maximize desired oxygen concentrator performance characteristics.
We have a dedicated R&D staff focused on producing the next generation of ZEOX molecular sieves to further advance the medical oxygen market. Our technical staff works closely with design engineering teams and adsorption researchers to assist in the design, production and overall quality of medical oxygen concentrators.
