Air Products (NYSE:APD) understands that a reliable, uninterrupted supply of medical oxygen is vital to any healthcare facility. This understanding has driven the company to technical innovations that not only improve the efficiency of its oxygen supply systems, but also optimize gas use. Air Products will highlight these systems—including systems for emergency oxygen supply and high efficiency systems that reduce oxygen loss—from August 4-5 at the 51st ASHE Annual Conference & Technical Exhibition in Chicago.
ASHE attendees are invited to stop by Air Products’ booth 812 to speak with a representative about the reassurance they can gain from having additional on-site oxygen storage with a minimum 24-hour emergency supply. The company’s emergency supply systems can provide an instantaneous supply of oxygen for a variety of unexpected situations, such as an oxygen line failure, an unforeseen disaster, or unusual spikes in demand. Air Products’ oxygen supply systems are supported by the company’s proprietary software and remote TELALERT® telemetry system, which helps facilitate forecasting and scheduling product deliveries. The company also offers a number of additional services, such as testing, repairs, preventative maintenance, gas audits, engineering, and turnkey installations.
Air Products has also developed a new patent pending technology for its medical liquid oxygen supply systems that can reduce the loss of normally vented oxygen by as much as 30 percent. The company’s high efficiency supply system first pulls oxygen in the form of a gas, rather than a liquid, to eliminate a rise in the tank’s pressure, thereby reducing the product loss by venting that would otherwise result. Depending on volume requirements, Air Products’ high efficiency supply systems can work with many medical or industrial gases applications that employ batch/intermittent usage or start-and-stop consumption.
Air Products has been a leading supplier of medical gases in North America since 1947. The company provides a variety of safe and reliable delivery options to match each customer’s requirements. For small-volume users, Air Products offers its CryoEase® microbulk solutions, which eliminate the hassle of cylinder handling and change-out. For large-volume customers, the company provides traditional bulk liquid and gas supply.
