THAME, ENGLAND, November 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With over 30 years of experience in oxygen analysis and moisture measurement, Systech Illinois provide efficient gas analysis solutions to a wide range of industries worldwide. ---
The main use of Medical Air is to aid in long-term life support; in intensive care units, critical care units, and neonatal intensive care units. It is used either by itself, to transport inhaled medications, or mixed with other gases to support patient respiration and is made up of approximately 78% Nitrogen and 21% oxygen with traces of water vapor, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, argon, and other various components.
Medical air is distributed in high pressure cylinders or manufactured onsite with air compressor systems at health care facilities. When manufactured with compressor systems onsite; clean, contaminant free air is brought into the facility, then it is compressed, cooled, dried, filtered, and distributed through a medical gas pipeline distribution system.
Regular analysis of medical air is required to ensure that the oxygen concentration is not less than 19.5% and not more than 23.5%. Following the appropriate United States Pharmacopeia standards, in this case specifically USP34, requires an analyzer which uses an electrochemical cell based technology and is readable to 0.1% of oxygen and easily calibrated with ambient air to an accuracy of ± 0.2% of oxygen.
The Systech Illinois EC910 instrument utilizes the variations of electric current produced by the interaction of oxygen with an electrochemical cell to display the oxygen strength of a confined sample or an in-line flow of the gas. A current output is produced directly proportional to the concentration of oxygen in the sample gas, which is then displayed.
The EC910 uses the highest quality sensors, providing an accurate and reliable instrument capable of measuring percent oxygen as required by the air separation and medical gas qualification industries. Available in panel or bench mount configurations, this oxygen analyzer has output and alarm options for charting, process control or remote monitoring.
