Why is Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption important?

Only Precision Medical provides Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption technology ensuring each sieve bed is perfectly rejuvenated every cycle. This results in clean sieve beds, so they can produce high oxygen purity for a long period of time.

Superior Sieve Beds, Lower Upkeep Costs

Other manufacturers use basic pressure only systems, leaving their sieve beds susceptible to water vapor and residual nitrogen which destroys them over time, causing frequent sieve bed replacements. Without the deteriorating characteristics of pressure only systems, Precision Medical provides the highest oxygen concentration and longest sieve bed life possible.

This technology not only ensures the highest oxygen purity, but also decreases the need to frequently replace sieve beds, reducing the overall cost of ownership.

Why is Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption superior to Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA)?

Vacuum is the most efficient way to desorb nitrogen from sieve material while delivering the highest purity of oxygen. This vacuum pressure swing adsorption process leaves sieve material as good as it can possibly be at the start of each sieve bed cycle.

Most manufacturers utilize simple PSA leaving sieve beds with residual nitrogen and moisture, causing sieve bed to degrade, lower oxygen purity and ultimately frequent sieve bed replacements.

Advantages of VPSA

  • VPSA eliminates any residual nitrogen
  • VPSA eliminates any residual water vapor
  • No wasted oxygen
  • More energy efficient
  • Your live Active Five runs cooler and is less likely to overheat
  • Longer life on your POC and its sieve beds leaving you with higher oxygen purity over a longer period of time versus the competitors
