Homefill oxygen devices or O2 transfill systems are popularly known as Oxygen Cylinder Refill Systems. They are portable oxygen refill devices that are used at home to fill empty O2 tanks. By using oxygen concentrator technology, the concentrated oxygen is extracted from room air to oxygen refill machines. This gives the user an unlimited refill of oxygen. The refill system then pressurizes the concentrated air to fill the oxygen cylinders. Patients get more liberty as they don’t have to depend on oxygen vendors for a refill. In this article, you will learn how to fill a portable oxygen tank from concentrator to make the most of your oxygen therapy from the comfort of your home.
An empty oxygen cylinder can be refilled at any time. It does not matter if the patient is away shopping or taking a nap. There are no restrictions on refilling the cylinder. Turn on the machine and attach the empty cylinder to refill the oxygen tank at home. After refilling, the portable oxygen tank can be used instantly or can be kept as a reserve. Oxygen refilling also saves the space required for storing the number of reserve tanks. Always make sure to have backup tanks filled and ready to go in case of an emergency.
Oxygen transfilling systems are integral to making a patient more independent, compliant, and healthy.
Oxygen Concentrator removes impurities and gases, such as nitrogen, from the ambient air and allows the patient to breathe better and maintain O2 levels in the blood.
The O2 compressor on the top of the refill system produces compressed oxygen by taking in the ambient air. The compressor is connected to the concentrator via a tube or hose that allows the oxygen to travel between them.
Oxygen Tank contains compressed oxygen for the therapy. The small tanks are refilled occasionally and come in various sizes for different requirements.
Other components include nasal cannula, reservoir, regulator, and tubing.
Oxygen tank refill systems can be used at places with a regular supply of 110-120-volt electricity. They can be used anywhere that electricity is available. They are ideal for home, office, and even hotel use.
