Medical compressors

Medical compressors - the sources of the purified compressed air, which is obtained from the environment. The dimensions are different, but with the development of technical capabilities, compressors reduced in size. On average, their weight is 45-80 kg., The size of about half a meter in all respects. The main consumers of small mass medical compressors - health facilities with little oxygen consumption (CRH, BTF, private medical centers, IVF) and lack of space for large oxygen concentrator, as well as the need to get rid of the oxygen cylinders. In medicine, oil-free compressors are used, piston, as increased demands on the quality, purity and sterility of compressed air. Air produced by reciprocating medical compressors, it does not contain oil and vapors.

The air passes through the filters and is applied either directly to the patient or in the central gas wiring LPU. Medical compressors may be composed of several modules according to the needs of the medical air.

In the dental clinic there is especially great need for compact equipment. For example, compressed air is needed for pneumatic equipment; purification system for mechanical impurities and moisture are regulated according to the regulations in force in a certain area.

Autonomous motor can be integrated in the medical compressors. There are additional functions: automatic shutdown of the motor overload; the condensate drain tap to clean the air from moisture; alarm sensors (temperature, pressure, power), pressure indicators.

The internal cavity of the receiver cover with anti-corrosion materials; piston rings are constructed from self-lubricating materials for the sake of saving maintenance time. Racks allow further strengthen for such additional devices, as pulmonary fans and humidifiers.

A series of medical air compressors - are electric compressor stations for compressed air production in large health facilities (in regional centers, where is a high frequency of surgical interventions).

Since oxygen concentrators often have to be installed in the offices, they are virtually silent, or in addition to it acquired a soundproofed compartment.

The correct choice of the compressor require the following parameters: maximum operating pressure, volumetric efficiency and volume of the receiver. If you make a mistake with any of these parameters, the compressor will fail prematurely or to be used inefficiently.

Westmedgroup Company is the official dealer of firms MZ Liberec, HVM and MILS - leaders in the production of medical gases. Our products cover the whole range of devices for intensive therapy: gas distribution consoles, terminals, medical monitors and valve system, compressor stations, anesthetic machines and ventilators.

Medical compressors are divided into classes: semi-professional and professional. The class defines a resource, and a valid operation.

By the principle of action of all medical compressors are divided into piston and screw. A piston compressor, in turn, subdivided into coaxial and with a belt drive.

The principle of operation of the compressor determines the cost, weight, complexity of service efficiency, and lifetime. If the air is compressed in a cylindrical container piston reciprocating, it is accompanied by a loud noise and vibration, the efficiency is low, require frequent maintenance. Pros piston: cheapness, ease of manufacture, easy repair.
