Resumen:
Una empresa austríaca ha desarrollado una tecnología innovadora para la producción de oxígeno con un alto grado de pureza (superior a 99,5%), característica que hace que esta tecnología sea adecuada para aplicaciones médicas. La línea de producción es una instalación in situ donde el oxígeno se separa del aire ambiente en un proceso especial. El aire se comprime con una presión de 5 bar. Durante esta compresión, es importante que el aire esté libre de polvo y aceite y que no supere determinado grado de humedad. La empresa busca socios del sector de ingeniería mecánica para comenzar la producción en serie y distribución y establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
New onsite oxygen production line with a high purity grade for medical application
Summary:
An Austrian company developed an innovative technology for the production of oxygen with a high purity grade (greater than 99.5%). Due to this fact it is optimal for medical application. The production line is an onsite manufacturing facility where oxygen is separated from ambient air in a special process. The company is looking for partners from the mechanical engineering sector to launch serial production and distribution. Commercial agreements with technical assistance are also sought.
Description:
Until now medical facilities like hospitals, ambulances, etc. could purchase their required oxygen (liquid or gaseous) only from large gas producers. Conventional onsite manufacturing facilities could only reach a purity grade up to 95%. Therefore they could not meet the standards of the Pharmacopoeia (Pharma Coupe).

An Austrian company succeeded in developing an onsite manufacturing facility, where oxygen with a purity grade greater than 99.5% is produced. All applicable quality standards and guidelines are met. A patent has already been granted for this product.

Process:
The oxygen to be processed is taken from the ambient air. In a special separation process, ceramic material in the form of a molecular sieve separates the oxygen from the air (pressure swing adaption - PSA). The air is compressed with a pressure of 5 bar. During this compression it is important that the air is oil and dust free and that a certain humidity degree is not exceeded. For this reasons air processing/treatment is a key factor.

This compressed air is passed through the air separator. There it is separated into oxygen and residual gases due to pressure changes in the molecular sieve. The oxygen for medical use is ready. The residual gases are emitted into the ambient air.

First prototypes have already been assembled and run successfully. The company is now looking for partners to enter into technical and manufacturing agreements for the serial production. Commercial agreements with technical assistance from the company are also sought.
