Liquid oxygen supply systems

Liquid oxygen supply systems typically consist of a refillable, portable unit that users can carry around and a stationary bulk storage unit or reservoir. The reservoir and portable units are constructed with a vacuum-separated container inside of a container, much like a thermos bottle. The oxygen must be kept in the thermos-like container at extremely low temperatures (-183°C or -297°F) in order to stay liquid. The liquid warms as it exits the container, transforms into gas, and is supplied to users at room temperature for them to breathe when ready to use the oxygen.

One liter of liquid oxygen is equivalent to approximately 860 liters of gaseous oxygen. As a liquid, it has less volume - so more oxygen fits inside an oxygen tank. Liquid oxygen is lightweight, has lengthy durations, is not dependent on electricity, and can treat multiple disease states. These features make it a great option for many users.

  • Cost-efficient, no electricity required

  • High oxygen flows for longer periods

  • Require less space than gas cylinders

  • Increased ease of mobility
